When I first heard the song, My Immortal by Amy Lee of Evanescence, I fell in love with her voice. I could tell she was using a mixed singing voice technique and it resonated with me. Do you know what mixed singing voice sounds like? Inside this video you’ll hear Amy Lee sing in mix, and also pull chest. Then you’ll hear eight other singers singing the exact phrase…some mixing…others pulling chest. By listening to this video, you’ll be able to hear the difference between mix and pulled chest which will help you develop your mixed singing voice.

Mixed Singing Voice vs Pulled Chest
Here are the notes Amy Lee sings in these examples. This phrase builds into the first bridge of the women’s voice. This means that there are also words which may pose a special challenge.
Here are the words and notes she and the other singers will sing.
“I’ve tried so hard to tell myself that you’re gone
But though you’re still with me, I’ve been alone all along”
Are you ready? Here we go.
