The problem I have with your reaction is you are a vocal coach by what credential I don't know. But you compliment her outfits and things but you don't see this as a memorable song. This is a subjective thought and you are entitled to that. But my question is why have you not tried to pursue a music career since you are a vocal coach and can read music? I heard your imitation of Whitney Houston's IWALY and I was not impressed it was average but nothing memorable that stood out. You are just another imitator who tried her best to duplicate an anointed singer and fell short! No feeling no emotion at all. So again I say why aren't you a singer with a career?

I don't think the song is memorable to you because it wasn't meant for you. No offense.

Random Request: can you REACT to Candace Glover "Lovesong" from American Idol. It's one of my FAVORITE vocal performances and I don't see any other vocal coaches reacting to it. It's old (like 2012 or 2013) but it's definitely worth a listen! Amazing vocaaaals!

No disrespect but you don't know what the song represents. It's beyond your understanding because this represents the African Spirit. It's actually way deeper than you can see because you don't know the background. Just do a little bit of research and then revisit the video and song. That song means something different to people of African descent and ppl who understand Beyonce'. Keep up the great work.

How much is Beyonce's team paying you to "react" to her "vocals"? Having a vocal coach "react" is another angle in her Public Relations stategies. Hmmm.

AS USUAL self-entitled Beyonce' STOLE IDEAS for the Spirit video from @rharha_nembhard. Petite Noir - La Maison Noir (Extended) | OFFICIAL VIDEO ruvid.net/video/video-hMoVH1pv5gg.html
This is the ending song for her movie/music visual ‘Black is King’. You honestly have to hear her whole album. I wouldn’t say that this was suppose to be the ‘big song’.

She never reacted to Bigger or Otherside 🥺🥺

She is like another Freddy mercury that only comes one on earth R.I.P Freddy 😭😭😭😭😭😭😢😢😢😢😢
She costumes are representing African goddesses. Yellow for Oshun goddess of love, fertility and sensuality. The blue for Yemaya goddess of water.

Dragon Magick1776 Jazmine Sullivan does wonderful runs, riffs and deep to high notes. Tori Kelly also does wonderful runs and everything else.

Here's a not so oldie song that you might enjo Tara. ruvid.net/video/video-f3BRpyB5ayw.html Lisa Fischer 'How can I ease the pain'. This is the album version, but there's a live version and the note is even higher.

I appreciate the fact that you pointed out that Spirit was an underwhelming *song* while still having an outstanding vocal performance. Beyoncé's vocals and arrangement really elevated it from meh to good. I wish she didn't insist on cowriting all her own music. With great songwriters she could have had a really anthemic power balad like Listen (from Dreamgirls) but with her current musicality and vocal maturity and THAT would have been incredible. (And while I know many people will say she *did* cowrite Listen, her contribution to that song was so miniscule that she was not included in consideration as one of the three main cowriters the year it was nominated for an Oscar. Make of that what you will)

Tara saying that spirit is an "Okay" song is legit, "Bigger" is by far the best one in the album, lyrically and sonically

Her deep parts in this were just teasing us that she didn't cover Shadowland for the movie because her voice would have suited all those low notes so well

I definitely agree with you about that super high note she hit. I think it's the first time I've ever felt underwhelmed about something Bey did. Lol You should listen to Otherside and Bigger. They are FREAKIN' beautiful!

I'm only giving a thumbs down on your view of the lyrics of the song. I honestly see that you hear the song only and don't feel it. But at the end of the day your a vocal coach, the message in the song will bring a tear to the spirit.

Have subscribed to your channel for a few weeks now. Should've discovered you a long time ago. Ugh. Anyway, I love your videos. Not just this one but the rest of em. The analysis, the technicalities, the negatives, the postivies, the personality and of course them hair and blouses omg. Yass. I'm stanning. BTW, as part of the hive (beyhive - Beyoncé's fanbase) and a former normies, if you love her lows, kindly listen to her songs that showcase that. here are some vids I would really want to hear analysis from you: 1.) Her la Vegas concert when she sang a stripped down version of sweet dreams and sweet love and she was sick so it added Flava to her voice 2.) Listen (Live on Oprah) - also sick, but imma be wigless if you do analyze that 3.) Recordings (where her lows are mostly used) - Otherside (From Lion King: The Gift Album) Bigger (Also from the Gift) Friends (with Jay Z) Halo 😇 😂 lives Coz I fell in love with her voice after it matured and sounded fuller and bigger. And honestly just her popular live performances in award shows catalog. Her stripped down and ballad songs, her rap songs. Any of those honestly. I don't expect you to do all just some you'd like. Thabk you and I'm hours in watching vids on your channel. This is one rabbit hole. Help.

But you forget, Beyonce doesn't even have lows. She literally ruins her songs by trying to sing a broader range than what she should sing. She should have just done a duet for this song with someone who complments her "talent."
