Beyonce’s Mix Up
April 22, 2009 by beecup
Beyonce’s Dad is mad at everybody who’s knockin’ his baby (well, I guess Jay Z’s allowed) about the bad board mix up of her vocals on the ‘Today Show.’
A raw recording of Beyonce tuning in and out with her smash hit “If I Were A Boy” has surfaced, and it doesn’t sound good. Apparently she was singing into a mike which was recorded on the sound board, while a pre-recorded version was blasted through the speakers to the audience.
But Mathew Knowles says the track has been altered and Beyonce’s vocals are above critique.
“If no one took the time to look at the biggest Inauguration in the history of America then shame on them. If no one took the time to listen to Beyonce sing ‘America the Beautiful’ and ‘At Last’ at the Neighborhood Ball for the first dance of President Obama and the First Lady, and they question Beyonce’s vocal ability, they’ve gotta be an idiot.
At 12 years into her career, the last thing someone should be questioning is her vocal ability. That would be like questioning if Kobe Bryant could shoot a jump shot. The vocals were obviously altered.”
I bet Etta James is laughing her gas off right now.
Take a listen here. So what’s the verdict? Is this a sham or a shame?
