hazardous saidYou have a cute accent, but I bet you hear that all the time.
Oh you just reminded me that I want to do a video on accents! Good one.
Not really lol, cos I live in England and some people speak like me. I have a more, what people would say, 'posh' British accent when it's not even posh! But the general southern accent is much coarser than how I speak (I do know cos I used to speak like that). Actually, when I was younger I used to be obsessed with America and the American accent
Thank you for listening
I wanted to ask! To me it seems like British people lose their accent when they sing, with the exception of maybe Lily Allen. Do you feel like American Singers lose their accent when they sing?
Such a good question! I was born in England and have a proper British accent but
I actually had to really work on trying to sound American. It's true!
I've never had a vocal lesson in my life so I was never taught how to sing the vowels properly. So when I first started singing around 3 years ago, my accent sounded very weird. Quite a few people on Youtube picked up on this and said I had a weird accent -- which I did. Funnily enough, I tended to sound more Chinese than British!
In answer to your question: no, I don't think American singers lose their accent when they sing but of course sometimes it's quite obvious what accent they have according to their genre of music. Like country singers would have a more southern accent and rnb singers would speak in ebonics. I might be an exception, but I definitely found it difficult to adopt a proper singing accent.Also
things got even more confusing when I sang in Mandarin. Mandarin's not really my language, and people commented, saying how my accent was much too like a Hong Kong accent!
