Ariana Grande Debuts ‘The Voice’ Coach Gift, Health Kits to Aid in Vocal Longevity
Who wouldn’t want a lunchbox filled with teas, supplements, and honey packets? Ariana Grande offered her first gift of The Voice season to Katie Rae Mortimer, the first artist of Team Ariana. She wants her artists to have longevity, so she is providing them with ingredients to keep their voices.
It’s no secret that Grande has a voice like no other. She is known for reaching a really high register and singing whistle tones. We don’t hear whistle tones out of this singer too much anymore. These notes were used primarily in the beginning of her career. I’m talking about her first album, Yours Truly. In more recent years Grande has stepped away from using whistle tones to preserve her voice.
Grande was put on Vocal Rest During Yours Truly Debut
In fall of 2013, she was doing multiple televised performances a day to bring awareness to her first album, Yours Truly. After performing on shows like “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” and “The Today Show” she was ordered to go on vocal rest immediately. She suffered from a vocal cord hemorrhage because she was overperforming. Although these performances were getting a lot of sales for her debut album, this was career changing news.
She had to stay silent for at least four days, and had to cancel a bunch of media appearances, including “The Queen Latifah Show” and “The Arsenio Hall Show.” But unfortunately this isn’t the only time she’s had to be on vocal rest to continue a string of performances.
“Manuka honey pops, vocal rest, steam & water. luh you, boston, thank u again,” the pop singer said on her Instagram.
In 2019 Grande embarked on her “Thank U Next” tour. Grande was extremely open about the fact that she was on vocal rest whenever she wasn’t performing during this tour. After her initial issues with her voice, she’s still gone on to release five more albums and do countless performances. Since Grande knows all about vocal rest, it’s great that she’s providing her team members with the right supplies to minimize harm.
