Vocal Profile and Range: Kelly Rowland

Vocal Range: C3 - F5 - Eb6
Vocal Type: Lyric Mezzo-Soprano (3 octaves, 1 note and a semitone)
Vocal Rating: C+

Capable of complex vocal runs and melismas. The head voice is bright and solid, and gains a stronger ring the higher it ascends. Belts from Bb4-Eb5 are thick, resonant, and decorated with a lush vibrato. The pitch of held notes does not waver.

Her breath control in recent years has improved drastically, allowing for more rigorous choreography that does not come at the cost of vocals. Growls can be executed properly even in higher extremes.

Low notes are achieved by lowering the larynx, and are often breathy. The upper chest belts lack resonance, and lower head voice notes are airy like a weak falsetto.
