Voice Teacher Reacts to Marcelito Pomoy – Beauty and the Beast


Hi everyone. Andy Davis here again from
Master of Voice, a channel with reactions to performers from across the world. In
this episode another reaction to Filipino singer Marcelito Pomoy as he
performs on the finale of America’s Got Talent: The Champions season.
I know HGT must be proud of his performance because they have released
it early and so I’m thrilled to be able to react even before the show has aired
here in the US. So, let’s jump right in with this performance of “Beauty and the
Beast”. Nice! (Heidi: Yes, Marcelito.) Yes! I love it already, you guys. Up in that
beautiful male soprano or countertenor quality that he’s able to use with such
great perfection. I love where the vowel is placed. I love the resonance and the vibrato that comes in to the ends of some of
these notes here just showing us that it’s free of any tension and the walls
of the throat – when he wants it to be – and it is so well done you guys. He sounds in
good voice for this performance as always and I am thrilled to see how it
unfolds. Nice! Nice chest voice here. You guys, I love the flip back and forth,
as usual, with him. We’ve done several reactions to Marcelito but he’s giving
us a different color with these voices in this performance. The vowels are
placed just a bit differently than when he was doing Andrea Bocelli or Celine
Dion or Sarah Brightman and he is doing his thing so well here. Really showing
off his stellar talent, his superstar talent. I am so excited for him to be in
this finale and I know he has a great shot at winning it all. Wow! You guys! Heidi is so excited and so am I.
But just in that upper sound that he gives us. Countertenor, male soprano –
it’s all being debated – but, nonetheless, in his upper dual voice, if you will,
he’s able to give us not only a nice, floating head voice quality but also a
nicely supported belting quality, if you will, with some wider vowels. You see he
opens up his mouth a little wider there and he closes it a bit when he wants to
give us the head voice sound up there. The fact that not only he goes back and
forth between these two registers but then he manipulates the tone quality and
colors that he gives us within that specific register. You guys, it still
amazes me. Wow! Wow, you guys. Wow. The dynamic contrast he gave us in that
song, especially there at the end, pulling it back to a softly sung ending.
It just shows the stellar control he has of his instrument. Star quality talent
here on display here on America’s Got Talent: The Champions finale. I’m so eager
to see how it all unfolds. Such a great performance. I’ll be right back. I want to
see what the judges have to say. Okay, the majority of the comments were
outstanding. Heidi, Alecia, Howie… all loved his some choice, thought it was
even better than the last performance on the show.
Simon basically said the same thing, other than he wanted a little bit less
predictable of a song, which whatever. They’re there to give their opinions and
that’s what they are – opinions – but I think you can tell by the audience
reaction, by most of the judges, even Simon. He admitted that Marcelito is
going to have an awesome career. He already has one but it’s going to
explode even more from his exposure on this program. So I’m just proud of Marcelito. Such a stellar performance displaying his excellent vocal talent –
star quality talent – and we all appreciate it so much. I’m such a fan of
Marcelito. So, I’m excited to see how it all unfolds tomorrow night. If you
haven’t heard him, please check out my other reactions to him. There have been
several so far, a couple on this show and even a couple of others before he was on
this show. So, I am so thrilled for him, proud of him, and I hope you all enjoyed
this reaction. If you did, please click like and hit subscribe, leave me a
