I'm a sophomore who wants to join an acapella group this year. I've always enjoyed singing, but I have no choral experience because back in high school I was in orchestra. I've always preferred singing to playing cello, but for some reason my mom forced me to be in orchestra in HS. I couldn't make my university's orchestra last year as a freshman. Oh well.
I have some questions regarding acapella auditions and things of that nature.
1. I will be asked to prepare a verse and a chorus. I am a huge fan of R.Kelly (I don't give a finger in the middle if he's a criminal) and would like to sing either ignition remix or trapped in the closet. Or one that is more recent. Is it okay to sing a song like that? Or is it totally inappropriate?
2. What r&b songs do you recommend for auditions?
3. How wide should my vocal range be? I have a perfect pitch, but my range is only two octave, and I am neither tenor nor bass. That's my primary concern.
