Not Stevie's best performance vocally but she looks lovely, maybe a little tired.

I'm really concerned about Stevie's voice these days. She sounds really harsh and nasally. She's lost a ton of range and the sweet softness that made her voice so appealing, especially live. Now she just seems to be yelling and singing in a monotone. Is this what her vocal coach is teaching her? I worry that her voice won't last through a big Mac tour. Rest, Stevie. Rest.

John, I agree. I don't think she's lost it, I just think now that her voice is a bit deeper, she pushes herself to sing in a higher tone. I prefer her voice a bit deeper (look at 'Blue Lamp', 'Sorcerer' and 'Edge of Seventeen' for example), but she seems to be trying to push herself to sing in a higher pitch, like her voice was in the Rumours era, before it changed. I think because she's pushing herself to sound higher, it's sounding a bit monotonous and crackly when she hits her absolute highest point.

If she went down a key she'd be much more flexible and could hit higher notes and deeper tones without sounding too deep or too high/crackly.
