Since there are a lot of vocalist fans on this board, I thought you all might be interested in this article about famous opera singer Renée Fleming. She is putting out a new album in which she does cover songs from bands such as Muse, Death Cab for Cutie, and Peter Gabriel. There is also a video of Fleming performing one of the songs. She's got a gorgeous voice, and she has done an amazing job of adjusting it from operatic singing to rock singing. The people who wrote the article seemed to hate the album, but I'd have to hear more of it in order to form a real opinion. Here's a link to the article:
