Cyndi Lauper, Annie Lennox, Teena Marie (If I Were a Bell cloud9) Christina Aguilar (that note she hit in the song Reflection from Mulan was higher than a mug)


"Reflection" was written and produced by Matthew Wilder and David Zippel for the 1998 Disney animated feature Mulan. Several new and established singers auditioned to record the pop version of the song, but Wilder and Zippel felt none of them could hit the high E flat note two octaves above middle C. Christina Aguilera recorded her audition for the song using an old tape recorder in her bathroom, and sang the high E flat note two octaves above middle C on a cover of Whitney Houston's "Run to You". Wilder and Zippel were impressed by her vocals, and they gave her the job.

There is something about that taping that is very off. The guy sitting at the piano for no apparent reason. The guy stating "off the scale". It's a very staged show-thing. Also the stupid hand-at-head thing bothers me. They should have kept it a lot simpler.

What happened to her YouTube above??

Also, I think Minnie is the only one who is credited with actually articulating words in the whistle register.
