If you are aware of Kenneth Kamal Scott, by now I'm sure you know I've been out here on the stages of the world for a very long time. It is by no means an accident that my vocal apparatus still functions in a healthy manner,retaining it's youth and flexibility. "The Proof of the pudding is in the eating."
Some years ago I chose to completely reorder the functioning of my gift. I was cautioned by many of my colleagues at the time,but I was sure that, though I was taking the road less traveled, I would ultimately be the victor. To have had a great career singing in chest, a great career singing in falsetto, and arrive in the fall of my years with a Mezza Voce that doesn't Quit! I think, this needs to be addressed.
People who are up in years; There does not have to be an end. Correct knowledge is the answer. There are many roads to Rome, and I know I've found one. Many types of vocal damage can be corrected without surgery and it is possible to sing well at age 60 and beyond.
