Recording vocals is such a huge challenge as a singer. I would get so excited & nervous that I didn't sing as well as I could, & I'd end up wasting time editing, and trying to piece a take together. It was painful! Mari hit a reset button for me. Yes, she's a great coach, & she's also an artist and I think that makes a huge difference. She gave me that edge so that I know I can do a great job & get that memorable, emotional vocal that shows the best of what I can do.
