Girl Makes A Really Cool And Unique Cover Of A Michael Jackson Song You’ll Love.

Singer and musician Kawehi originally posted this video of her covering Michael Jackson’s ‘The Way You Make Me Feel‘ in 2012, but it went mostly unnoticed up until this week, when it went viral and racked up nearly 2 million views on YouTube.

The reason it went so big so quick is because when it comes to covers not many are as incredible as this… it really blew me away. You see, all of Kawehi’s instruments and backing in this are just her own voice.

With the help of a sampling machine she begins by making a loop recording of the backing track using her own vocals, she then starts singing the song on top of that…you really have to see and hear it for yourself to get how awesome this is.

This girl’s talent is off the charts awesome, the only ones who don’t see to be enjoying it are her dogs, who slept through that whole awesome performance.

Your Guide To The Strange And Awesome Practice Of Polyphonic Singing.

We’ve all been blown away by singers before. Some people can sing with technical skill, but also a range of emotional resonance that touches us on a deep level. We think, wow, it’s incredible that someone can make that sound. There are many types of song, from classic opera to the death metal growls. Whatever your taste, all kinds require training and some level of technical expertise.

Then there’s polyphonic singing. That’s when one person creates two different tones with one breath–two notes coming out of one person’s mouth. “Polyphonic” means “multiple sounds,” and in instruments, it’s like playing tow notes on a piano at the same time. Polyphonic singing a very particular skill that takes a lot of practice. It’s also a traditional method of singing in Mongolia.

The sound is odd, almost like a human theremin. If you’re not used to it, you might not enjoy it, but the technique is still interesting. Polyphonic singing is not a weird talent or the result of some uncommon physical gift. Anyone can learn to do this with some practice.

This style of singing has been used in Mongolia for hundreds of years for prayer and folk singing; it’s known as “throat singing.” One theory is that it was used by shepherds to call to each other over great distances, since the sound can carry quite far.

I can’t even carry a tune normally. I can’t imagine doing something like this.

This Is What ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ Becomes After Going Through Google Translate

Google Translate is a wonderful tool when you want to translate entire websites or when you’re stumped on a foreign word you really should know but for some reason can’t remember. But how does it handle song lyrics?

Singer and YouTuber Malinda Kathleen Reese decided to put it to the test when she took the lyrics to Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” and passed them through several different language translations before ultimately translating them back to English. The result is pretty hilarious.

This is a perfect example of why I truly love the Internet. What a time to be alive!

All goofiness aside, she has a really good voice.
