If you have not heard of this woman than start! Joyce DiDonato is a power house Opera singer from Kansas City who started her career at the late age of 35! She is one of Opera's most highly sought after singers and has such an ability to coach up and coming singers.
Recently, I had the opportunity to watch a master class on Medici.tv Please take a look at this resource as it contains wonderful educational components, tons of Classical music and intriguing documentaries.
Whether you sing Jazz, Pop. or Musical Theatre, nothing compares to the solid foundation that Classical singing can provide. That does not mean you have to become an Opera singer, but it is highly advisable to have some sort of training in this area. So, why not unleash your inner Opera Diva...try out a lesson or two because there is always time to find your music within.
Happy Singing....as always.
