Adele? The Beatles? Why Do Brits Sound American When They Sing?
We've all heard singers like Adele and The Beatles sing. When speaking they sound positively British with their accents being so thick. It's almost hard to understand what they're trying to say sometimes! Well, the reason why their singing is much easier to understand is really quite simple.
The majority of mainstream music that is popular is mostly American. When a singer like Adele begins listening to these songs and begins singing along she picks up on how American singers sing certain letters and words as opposed to how British people would pronounce them. From the time Adele began singing she was probably exposed and trained to sound more American in her singing voice! It's really quite cool!
