Mariah Carey Credits Vocal Range To Smoking… And Quitting

Jeannette Walls of MSNBC.com reports that told Swedish mag Groove that she got her incredible singing range from smoking. “It’s true. The two lowest octaves are probably there because of the smoking,” Carey said. “But of course it’s not good to smoke. I always had a cold and constant throatache.” So she quit, she said. “One day I promised God that if he would give me my voice back I would never smoke again. I got three octaves back after quitting.” Read more.

    that’s actually true. smoking can help your voice in certain ways, but it can take away certain things too. I can sing higher when I don’t smoke, but I have a nicer tone when I do smoke. so its hard for me to decide which is better!! but isn’t it weird to hear that mariah once smoked?

    Smoking sure didn’t improve Britney’s voice. At all.

    That’s interesting, I didn’t know smoking can change your range that much. I didn’t know she smoked either!

    This shocked me too, especially since it’s her bread & butter.

    I know some entertainers smoke part time (?) to surpress their appetite but I never’, ‘heard of it for their vocal range. It does make sense for the lower notes.

    Stop talkin crap about cigarettes and singing skills, that’s just insane and if mariah can sing the way she does is because she’s gifted and that’s it, now 4 the one who said crappy stuff about the cigarette that never helped Britney u must know that gifted or not she rocks and people just accepted her the way she is from the very beg so stop talking crap about Britney we all know she’s not a mariah even tho she can make good songs also!

    yup…..her decision wasn’t wrong at ol….we ol know that smoking can irritate and possibly could damage the good quality functioning of the vocal cords because it will dryin and swoolel the cords…..so as a whole,the desicion where my idol Mariah Carey done was not bad BUT very inteelegent…!!!!
