Using resonance to build a bridge. The singer should try to maintain correct placement as she sings the different vowels. The goal is to smooth the area between the voices or vocal break. In essence, for those singers with a hole in the voice, we are trying to strengthen this area through proper resonance, as if we are building a bridge. This is a mid to upper mid range exercsie.

In essence, for those singers with a hole in the voice, we are trying to strengthen this area through proper resonance, as if we are building a bridge. This is a mid to upper mid range exercsie. The pronunciation of the "n" should resemble the spanish n with a ~ above it. The "a" sound should be the same vowel as the "a" in cat.
