mav2100 Sounding great on this wonderful song. Hitting those highs cleanly. Azre you singing your own backups too? Very Niiiiiiiice!! This is a tough one for sure. You are rocking it Marky!! Loving it!! You da Man!! Mwahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, Pam
Reply: Hi Pam, I knew the original recording from Gabriel had women backing up his vocals on the highnotes so I had to manage producing the notes on my own, however after getting that far with the recording, I decided to add lower octave back ups during the chorus's. There were back ups on the track, but were lacking to give it a full sound. I am so pleased to hear from you and thank you for your support. ~Mark~
