Trilingual Defying Gravity (German/Dutch/English) - Willemijn Verkaik
Okay but if you don’t think Willemijn Verkaik is talented I need to have sit-down heart to heart with you.
This woman has performed Wicked in three different languages and in four different countries. This recording right here? It’s live. She’s effortlessly shifting from German, Dutch, and English and back again. First by verses, and then with every phrase. I may not be a professional, but I’m pretty damn sure that the language you’re singing in changes the way you need to sing.
As a foreign language student I’m in awe of that. Totally in awe.
And then we need to talk about that perfect voice. Never in my life have I heard someone sing so beautifully. This woman’s voice is indescribable. Her voice soars. I don’t know enough about singing to give her the credit she deserves, but she deserves it all.
Linguistically and vocally (don’t even get me started on her acting or how wonderfully she treats her fans) this woman is perfection.
This is ear porn!
