Vocal Range and Profile: Selena Gomez

Vocal Range: Bb2 - F#5 - C#6
Longest Note: 10 seconds
Vocal Type: Lyric Mezzo-Soprano (3 octaves, 1 note and a semi tone)
Vocal Rating: D

Positives: A light, girlish tone can be found throughout Gomez's voice. A sweet, airy head voice combined with dark, healthy lows. Her chest voice gains a slight edge as she ascends, with ease in the fourth octave and ability to phrase in the fifth. The voice is cutting throughout each register.

Negatives: Lack of vibrato makes the notes sound harsh, and the chest notes carry little to no power with them. Her stamina live is sub-par, and the voice can become nasal and whiny at points. Intonation proves to be a struggle as well, as she lacks solid support and connection throughout her voice.
