Voice Teacher Reacts to Dimash Kudaibergen – Unforgettable Day (Gakku)

Voice Teacher Reacts to Dimash Kudaibergen – Unforgettable Day (Gakku)

January 19, 2020 100 By Stanley Isaacs


Hi everyone. Andy Davis here again from
Master of Voice, a channel with reactions to performers from across the world. In
this episode, another reaction to Dimash and another reaction to “Unforgettable
Day”. This will be my third time reacting to this particular song that so many of
you had requested this specific performance at his Gakku performance
back in 2017. Let’s jump right in. All his “Dears” are out in full force. I know that some of you have been
watching my other reactions to this song and there are translations on those in
English. Gloria Wu did a beautiful translation
when he was on The Singer competition. Gave us some background in that video.
You know he wrote this song when he was in his teen years and that was an
awesome video that showed us the pre-stage interview and actually a whole
segment where he went back to Kazakhstan. The music school he had attended
growing up and that was great and then, of course, I reacted to his excellent
version at Bastau and, of course, The Dimash InfoStation had provided us
with a beautiful translation of that as well. But, for this particular video, I did
grab a quick translation of the English lyrics. And so, this is a rough
translation, but they start off, “I fell in love with you at first sight,
you’re indulging words as sweet as honey. Your gracious moves bewitch my soul and
I couldn’t take my eyes off your shining face.” He is in such good voice for this
performance – giving us beautiful nuances with the dynamics here. Some softer
sounds surrounded by a bit of breath along with some fuller sounds. But, we’re
still just building into this song dynamically. You know, he’s in his mid to
lower chest range here, just a comfort level, setting up this story. He’s in the
chorus though, “All dreams I’ve dreamed so long as you. You are my dawning of every
day. You are my treasured dreams in my hands. I will cherish it. I will take care
of it.” This is truly a beautiful song by him. “Oh, what a marvelous, beautiful day.” “Marvellous, unforgettable day.” I just love that phrase, “Oh, what a
marvelous, unforgettable day.” Because this is truly a beautiful song with beautiful
lyrics. “No one can order the heart to obey. No
one can extinguish the flame of my love. If the God has left you to my destiny,
happiness of all inside this world I’ll be.” Building a little bit here dynamically, a
media volume. Love the backup singers joining in there. A nice, fuller volume here. I love the horn in this section, as well.
The phrasing of that trumpet it’s just beautiful every time I hear it. In that
last section, though, he opened up a louder volume there, if you will. The
vowels were a bit more full and open. You know, he’s going up in his chest
voice just a bit and he is building to the end of this awesome song. I also love,
as usual, how he’s interacting with his “dears” here in the audience –
keeping everyone engaged during this excellent performance. Wow! Of course, “My darling. I cannot let
you go. I cannot let you go. How can I give you to another,” and then the chorus
repeats. But, I am excited for this ending. Staccato there. I knew something great was coming. For
months, you all have prepared me. Some of you were a little upset that others had
mentioned it. But, the awesome D8!! I almost wanted to adjust my headset here, my
earbuds. Wow! Dimash, what just happened? I don’t think you can’t be prepared
for that. I mean, you know, I have heard about it. I heard that it was gonna
happen. It’s the main reason I reacted to this song for a third time from this
particular year but. Wow! He continues to impress and shock! This
was shocked right here and I’m so eager to get into his current songs and we’re
getting there you all. Dears, thank you, for being patient with me. I know that
I’ve gone off and explored so many other singers since we first started on this
journey with Dimash. But, I am no less excited to hear the newer songs,
throughout the past couple of years, and then into his current performances –
even the New York concert in December, last December. But, wow!! So beautifully done with
that amazing d8! Wow, I have to go back and hear it again. I hope you don’t mind.
I’ve never done this in a different reaction, but that was so amazing, we just
have to see it again. I love his head voice. He did it so well
setting this up. Wow oh my gosh. That was so high that
when he actually dropped down he was still in his head voice but you could
just feel the difference in interval there. That was truly amazing. Wow!
I hope you enjoyed this reaction, Dears, as much as I did, and if you’re new to
Dimash, check out my entire playlist of him. I am so impressed with this
excellent, superstar singer from Kazakhstan, you guys. If you all enjoyed
