Lost – Alternate Version feat. Carmen Twillie

Lost – Alternate Version Featuring Carmen Twillie

When the wonderful Carmen Twillie came over to sing on a film project, and I wondered what she would be like as Shirley. You have heard Carmen’s voice. She is one of a very elite group of studio singers here in Los Angeles. And her voice is a part of many, many soundtracks, including the solo voice which begins the animated film The Lion King. She, however, sings like a he. She is probably a baritone, not a mezzo, and she sings Shirley’s aria a full octave below where Kyla sang it. Remember the piano is still playing a classical chaconne—those repeated chords–that grows along with Shirley’s anger, but Carmen is singing this in much more of a gospel style.   – Laura Karpman
