If you want to listen a performer using a variety of sounds, listen to Ben, Billie Jean, and I Just Can’t Stop Loving You, as sung by Michael Jackson.
In these three songs, Michael uses a variety of sounds and parts of his voice. He uses his falsetto, a mix, and belt. In Billie Jean, he uses his falsetto when he says on the dance; he uses his mix in the very beginning of the song; and he belts when he says people always told me be careful who you love.
