    Okay so firstly I love it when I hear vibrato from a musician, but especially vocalists. To me, it adds a special something to the music. So really good job with that. Um your pitch is a little bit...twerky. As I would say to one of my students, it's a little funky. It's not an earthquake meter, it's not s'posed to rock back and forth! (That is a joke, for the record.) You've definitely got potential. I can hear it your voice. Like has been mentioned, get yourself a vocal coach or even join a choir where you can get a little bit of extra help from the director. Whenever you practice, okay, have a tuner on your stand or in front of you somewhere. This is going to help you, because you're going to see exactly where your pitch is going. The tuner/metronome DOES NOT LIE! Part of what's going to help you a lot is when you go to warm up, play or have a pitch played for you. Hum the pitch first. Hear the pitch, get it in your head. Then in a comfortable range for you, open your mouth and sing the pitch using just an "Ah" syllable. My final comment is that you sound like maybe you're a bit nervous or uncomfortable. Maybe it's just camera fright or just not being comfortable singing or something else. But you will definitely be able to get past that.

    Yep..Il Divo!!!..Thank you so muc for your advices!!!..Yep i aggree that vibrato is something that come out from feeling..And when i sing that song..I feel it!..But i think i am good in pitch correction..I think its very confortable for me!..Can i ask you something?..Before you sing high notes you must have little air in diaphragm and take very small breath or wrong?..I know i should take a voice coach..But i dont have the time cause i am student..But i will try it some monmment!

    You need full breath support for high notes as well as all registers with steady compressed release. There are a number of vocal coaches with youtube videos on the subject as well as vocal technique. THese would help you out until you can get proper lessons/coaching.
