What are some awesome power notes and belts that made you go "Wow!"

biggrin Hey guys, it's me again. I hope I'm not creating too many threads within such a small amount of time. Basically, what I'm looking for are those triumphant and gloriously epic notes such as in the end of Whitney Houston's "One Moment in Time," and "Didn't We Almost Have It All"; Mariah Carey's magnificent belt in "Lead the Way,"; and (I know she's not well-liked here) Celine Dion's "All By Myself." Whenever I hear notes like those, it just gives me a sense of overwhelming sense of triumph, almost like I've conquered a major obstacles. Those kinds of notes give me life smile . So, I can't wait to see some of you all's suggestions! I'm still trying to build up my playlist! razz

For 65 years straight, the #1 genre in music, selling wise, was rock n' roll worldwide. Last year (2017) in June, it got de-crowned by hip hop. Hip hop is the #1 genre. It's hip hop - rock - country - pop or pop - country. ~ Pras

Make sure you look for the original 1972 version. They re-recorded the song later

The last note on Melba Moore's "Lean On Me" on her 1983 album, "Never Say Never!" MIND-blowin'!!!

Hungry? Just look in the mirror and get fed up.

Forgot about Melba Moore. Falling is also a good one. Thanks for remembering Melba. It's been a while since I heard anything about her. I hope she is doing well.

Teena Marie Cassanova Brown

Joyce Sims Come Into My Life

Now I know I'm stretching it here but Luther Vandross A House Is Not A Home has to be added to your playlist especially the live version. He does indeed belt and briefly extend notes in the most sublime way.

There are about 2 or 3 moments in this song that raise the hairs on your arms. Ive never played La Lupe for anyone who wasn't taken aback by how spectacular her voice was..

Change it one more time..

Hands-down MiMi Carey because she's more visible than any other Omega High Note Diva....The only other Omega High Note Diva that can match her highs but take her out with the Lower Register is Jazz Legend Rachell Ferrell..

Don't remember how to add youtube vids, but i'd have to say Rachelle Ferrell's "Why You Wanna Mess It All Up" & "I Can Explain" both from her Individuality set.
