Singing: Resonance Between the Soul and the Body On the Unity of Different Music Styles and Singing States

Xiaohong ZHONG


This paper explores how a singer can arrive at the best singing state and how the singing state can best serve the expression of music styles through a discussion of the four elements of the singing state, namely physiological, psychological, cultural and technical elements. From an academic prospective, it gives a synthetic analysis on how a singer’s soul and skills can form a perfect unity with the expression of songs.
