Voice Teacher Reacts to Angelina Jordan & Alexander Rybak – White Christmas


Hi everyone. Andy Davis here again from
Master of Voice, a channel with reactions to performers from across the world. In
this episode, another reaction to Angelina Jordan and this time she’s
joined by Belarusian-Norwegian singer Alexander Rybak as they perform “White
Christmas”. I’m excited to see their rendition. Nice! Wow.
That’s my first time hearing him and he has such a nice voice. A bit of a vibrato
creeping in at the ends of some of those phrases and notes there. And his vowels
are very well placed in sort of the center of his mouth here – letting it
migrate back just a little on a few of the notes – giving it a deeper and fuller
sound. And I really enjoyed that quality. Oh, so well done. She is like a jazz diva at this
point. You know, such rich, deep vocal quality in some of those notes. Yet,
letting it migrate just a bit forward and get a little bit breathy around some
of the ends of the phrases as it went up in melody, just a bit, and that’s so well
done. It shows that she’s in control, letting this freely and naturally flow
out of her on the breath. Wow. I am just so impressed with her the more
I hear and I really enjoyed his voice, as well. So, I’m enjoying this duet of one of
my favorite holiday songs. I’m a big Irving Berlin fan. I envy anyone that can play a stringed
instrument. I love them but I don’t play them well. You know, I really enjoy her performance
qualities as well. She just embodies the entire song and
lets the beauty of her jazz vocals flow through. And I know I’ve mainly reacted to
jazz songs by her so far. But you all tell me that she sings all genres now
that she’s grown up into her teen years and I’m excited to get to those. I enjoy the vibrato that creeps into
her sound. You hear it just at the end of “Christmas” there.
(Christmas) She lets just a beautiful amount of vibrato come in at the ends of
some of these phrases which is very well done for the Jazz genre of singing. So
impressed with this young lady. I know why so many of you that are subscribers
to my channel love her so much and several of you keep contributing to
my channel via Ko-fi and I appreciate that so much. Your continued support
means a lot to me and I’m excited to see Angelina on the new season of America’s
Got Talent – the champions season – if you will as they bring back several winners
from across the world. Wow that was excellent.
You know, her tone quality sits in sort of the back of her mouth just a bit for
the majority of this song. But right there at the end, she went up into her
upper chest voice a bit and she let that sound migrate to the front to be a bit
brighter and it was so well done. So nicely placed there and an excellent way
to end this beautiful holiday classic. Wow. I’m impressed with both of these
performers and I would like to hear more from Alexander in the future. Impressive,
both of them. Such a beautiful rendition. I hope you all enjoyed this reaction. If
you did, please click like and hit subscribe, leave me a comment down below
as always and I’ve left links to my social media, as well, if you’d like to
join me there. Otherwise, I hope you have a happy holiday season. Merry Christmas
and have a great day.

  1. I have been waiting for this! I thought you might pick this one 😉 As good as Alexander sounds on this, I think it is the 10 year old Angelina that steals the show. I really enjoy hearing your thoughts on Angelina. I hope to see you do many more from her!

  2. Por favor Andy escucha a Miguel Aceves mejía con su famosa canción malagueña salerosa y a Pepe Aguilar con la canción de me estoy acostumbrando a ti o la de me vas a extrañar psdt. Eres el mejor me encantan tus vídeos

  3. I hope that before you move on to her later stuff, you check out some more of what she did at 10…
    "Every Time We Say Goodbye": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KRSI8HmTHJA
    (this is one of my all time favorites from Angelina. So smooth, so clean… It is just perfection)

    "Summertime" (with the Norwegian Orchestra): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=stwF4ti1tbc
    "Feeling Good" : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7HaMvkflBAo

    And you could even go back to and hit a couple others that I think are "can't miss" from earlier…

    "At Last"(8 yrs old… nobody can do this song like Angelina): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=819bQ9I-T-g

    …and of course you already know this is coming…
    "I Put A Spell On You"(9ys old): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nwFloCPXzCs …I will keep requesting this one until you do it 😉

  4. Thanks, I enjoyed this a lot! I’d wish for them to do more together, Their voices would sound good together I think, besides Rybak is an excellent violin player! Along with Angelinas «Marys boy chils,» this might be a favorite Christmas song!

  5. I wish you would react to Angelina's version from "Marys Boy Child", It´s a masterpiece. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_3f0QL4yJ2g
    Alexander Rybak won the 2009 Eurovison Song Contest with the song, "Fairytales" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WXwgZL4zx9o

  6. Hi Andy! Thank you for your good reaction to my favourite singer. Although there are many reactors to Angelina's videos there are only a handful – of which you are one – who have the necessary musical knowledge to be authoritative in your comments, and it is something which I appreciate very much. You probably know that Angelina has about 120 videos on Youtube, at present. I note that you cover quite a number of performers and I'm sure that the fans of all of them are going to ask the question which follows. Is it possible for you to react to Angelina more frequently, please? My question is for purely selfish reasons, inasmuch as I am getting on in years and may not last the distance if you stay at only every fortnight or so :-).

  7. Thank you for reacting to this christmas song by Angelina Jordan and Alexander Rybak. Alexander Rybak won the Eurovision song contest for Norway in 2009 with a song called fairytale. He is just amazing on violin so he plays the violin in every song he has written. He has been in the final of Eurovision song contest two times and fairytale was he first time when he won in 2009. I will leave you the link so you can react to it. «Fairytale». https://youtu.be/WXwgZL4zx9o. Angelina Jordan has been singing a few christmas songs so you can react to.

  8. Thank you for great reaction. Love your reaction on Angelina. She SO deserve it. If you should listen to more Alexander, I suggest 13 horses. https://youtu.be/5_03WVKArFI

  9. Thank you for another great Angelina Jordan reaction. I am really looking forward to reactions of her singing other genres.
    Alexander Rybak won Eurovision for Norway in 2009, with his own song Fairytale. He also sat a new record for received votes. I have added a link.
    Please react to the magical AURORA. She is the voice of the siren in Into The Unknown form Frozen 2 and the one who sang Baby Mine in the Dumbo trailer. Billie Eilish said in a Vanity Fair interview “I find a lot of inspiration through visuals. When I was 12, I saw Aurora’s “Runaway” music video. Something inside me clicked, like, that is what I want to do, no matter whether it goes anywhere or not.”
    I suggest her performance of Runaway at The 2015 Nobel Peace Prize Concert. She wrote the song in one hour when she was 11 years old, she looks young, but was actually 19 when she performed at The 2015 Nobel Peace Prize Concert.
    As it is Christmas, I suggest her cover of Walking In The Air live in Nidarosdomen, from the Christmas movie The Snowman form 1982. It is magical. The setting for this concert is extraordinary, she has audience on three sides and stand on a little box scene in Nidaros Cathedral, the world’s most northern Gothic Cathedral, built between 1070 AD and 1300 AD.

  12. My favorite Christmas song sung by a good vocalist and a class violinist. But then it was "at this time!" 10-year-old "diva" Angelina Jordan who tops it all with her velvet voice. A beautiful performance.

  13. Nice. Please react yo Raphael Yo soy aquel 1966 or Me estoy quedando solo(sin micrófono/without microphone). You'll be surprised.

  14. Angelina always keeps the essence of the songs, that is her speciality even she makes it her own subtle and Soulful every time

    Jazz diva I think that should be the name for her presentation! Excellent!!!

  16. Hello, great reaction again. I so like this performance. I think this is the set up that Angelina appears at her best, with a small competent jazz band to support her great art.

  21. I really enjoyed Alexander playing the violin. He is really good at that but for me, his voice was kind of meh. I felt this song, vocally, was all Angelina Jordan, Although so many people have done White Christmas, Angelina is the first one since Bing Crosby who really understood this song. Love your reactions.
