Singing with emotion (grit in mid range)
I was wondering if anyone knows how to add just a tiny bit of grit to a single syllable for emotive use. I'm not talking about singing an entire song with grit, just the odd word when singing a mid to high note.
An example is of Michael Jackson in Dirty Diana. He uses this throughout but most notably just before the chorus and during the chorus on the word Di-AH-na.
