I'm doing a talent show at school in a month and I would like to sing something really powerful and without accompaniment because my guitar playing isn't great & would probably let me down and I don't want to use a backing track.
Could do some sort of gospel medley??
I can yodel too.

Any ideas would be much appreciated! Very Happy

Searching for 'gospel medley' on YouTube gets lots of results, but you probably did that already.

The best one I found quickly was this one...
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pu9UBCLwBAQ

Can you do that guitar? It sounds good with it.

I like this song because it breaks into a yodel near the end, but don't know how it would sound without music...
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X4Qxd676tkQ

Two really powerful gospel-like songs...

How Great Thou Art - everybody knows this one
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pLLMzr3PFgk

A Note to God - probably nobody knows this one
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7t6C1UCP19U

Do they give you a time limit? 2-3 minutes?

Are you allowed a backing track?

I'll look for more the next few days. You must have a good voice if you want a powerful song with no accompaniment. Shocked

I *love* medleys!! Usually I get sick of full songs very quickly, but medleys usually have long live in my playlists.

Kerry Christensen has lots of medleys and I love most of them! Specially if he includes yodel in them Very Happy

If you create a cool medley/suite, that would be great and original, I think. Adding yodel makes it even cooler. Good luck!


Btw, Jambalaya is WAY one of the best songs I know! But I like it a little faster than what is on the video Bob gave. Have you ever heard Kerry Christensen singing it on the Suite 3?

Thanks for all the suggestions everyone! Very Happy

I'm considering possibly an acapella version of sailor song by Rickie lee jones, and then transitioning into a variation of mockingbird yodel (the slow one).

That's really a different song, the only copy I could find on YouTube was posted and commented on in Hebrew.

How did you find it? Shocked

Hope my contribution is not too late! Embarassed I could not think of anything at first, but then this came to mind--it's not a medley, but is a traditional spiritual that is powerful, easy to learn, and would work great acapella.

That's a great song! I bet some slow yodeling could be added to it, in the middle? Razz

Really? That sound like a really difficult yodel, can you do that? Shocked Wow, you're good! Razz

You probably saw this other version, I like it because he relates to the audience a little, and it's funny.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p_UedyIfXUo

I'd love to hear a female version, it should be great! Very Happy

You are very inventive! Most people would just do a popular cover with 5 million views from YouTube, like Rolling in the Deep. Rolling Eyes

GOOD LUCK!! Very Happy Very Happy

Think I'm gonna sing wade in the water.

I'd be nervous too, this is BIG!! Please let us know when it's over, and how it went. Smile

Here's a 'cool' version by Eva Cassidy, it has interesting pictures and facts about icebergs.
