As the sun goes up, it was like giving us another day and another hope. It gives us smile that we live with another day. Nice to hear some songs with sun as mostly were positive. In this list, includes songs with “sunshine” as it also refers to “sun”.

Some facts from Wikipedia

Singers with sweet voices

There are lot of talented singers. An artist with high vocal range was often regarded as talented, however, this with lower voices was viewed as less talented. Nevertheless, that’s not always the case. There are artists who has lower range but are good in technical way of singing. Some artists has clear as water voice with their diction. I used to be in awe with artists having the high vocal range but it has changed. I prefer lower but sweet voices now. Whether they sing up-tempo or down-tempo, you’ll love listening to their songs. I got tired of listening to artists’ higher vocal range. I felt like it was deafening when I listened to an entire album of a singer.

I created a list of singers with sweet voices after listening in some of them through my Spotify account. Here they are below:

Jason Mraz- It’s not just the voice, but on how Jason play with his voice. How about mid-tempo but happy songs of him? It is really nice to listen to him when you are relaxing.

Colby Caillat- Colby and Jason made a relaxing song before which is “Lucky”. However, Colby’s voice has always been sweet and “bubbly”.

Regina Spektor- This artist’s voice feels like taking me to a grassy windy place. In her song “The Call”, I feel like I am in a breezy place.

Corinne Bailey Rae- Her voice takes you to the past and reminisce. Well, her songs “Put Your Records On” is about that, like looking back at good old days.

Lily Allen- Despite her sweet voice, there’s fierceness in lyrics of her songs. But her vocals are relaxing when she made her cover of Keane’s hit “Somewhere Only We Know”.

Janet Jackson- What I love from Janet is her airy vocals. Even her R&B songs like “That’s the Way Love Goes” or “Got ’till It’s Gone”, it’s not exhausting to listen to. She may just be behind with regards to vocals with her contemporaries Whitney Houston or Mariah Carey, but her vocals is sweeter than the two. Try listening to “Again” and hear her sweet voice.

Ed Sheeran- I often hear Jason Mraz in his voice when he debuted. But he got away from Jason’s shadow and made his own mark. His voice has his own gymnastic and can play and own a song he covers.
