Every day until the end of April, we’ll highlight some of our favorite kpop girl group vocalists on the way to #1.
Shimmying her way to the #18 spot isssss…
…Seunghee of CLC.
Don’t take this the wrong way guys–I LOVE CLC– but I don’t feel as if the girls in the group really get a chance to show off their vocals too often. Of course, they sing but the types of songs that they perform don’t give a lot of space for them to show off their talents. Lines are sometimes divided in a way that allows you to only hear small pieces of each girl’s performance, and because there are so many members, no one ever gets to sing for a long period of time.
That’s not a criticism at all. Their line distribution works, and CLC consistently puts out great songs. It’s just that I feel like overall people miss out on the fact that there is a lot of talent in the group, especially when it comes to Seunghee.
When you listen to her cover songs, you really have an opportunity to hear what she can do, and she never fails to impress. What we love most about her is how beautiful her voice is in every part of her range. Her low notes are full and warm, and she can hit the highs with plenty of support. Plus, she adds just the right amount of vibrato during those long sustained notes.
Expressiveness is another of Seunghee’s strong posts. You can hear it best in her cover of Taeyeon’s Four Seasons, and I think that’s because she’s singing in Korean. In this song, she modifies her volume to emphasize certain lines and punctuates the lyrics in just the right place to convey the meaning of the song.
Maybe it’s time we petition for a solo album for Seunghee? Until then, you can enjoy the play list of her covers that we put together, and stop back tomorrow to meet #17.
