Longest Note: 5 Seconds
Vocal Type: Light-Lyric Soprano (3 octaves, 1 note and a semi-tone)
Vocal Rating: C
Recommended Listenings: Postcard, Hurricane, Forgot to Laugh

Elastic belting voice, allowed by her neutral larynx and even mixing. The belts are achieved with ease, and can be fired rapidly (See Postcard, where she sings 9 Eb5's and Hurricane, where she sings 3 F5's). Her vibrato isn't forced and used with ease, and is pleasant to the ear. Her low notes are also achieved with a neutral larynx, and are sung with great support, making them full and weighty.

Her belts get thinner as she ascends into the upper belting register, around Eb5. Mixed belts are also very thin even earlier on, around C5. Bridgit also lacks the stamina and range in live settings, compared to that of her studio performances.
