Vocal impersonators

I have always found vocal impersonations fascinating. How does a comedian or singer move away from their own vocal setting enough to sound convincing as another famous singer? Do they know the anatomy and physiology of what they are doing or is it pure instinct and “feel” of where the sound is?

Listen and watch comedienne Christina Bianco performing at least 19 Diva impressions throughout this power ballad “Total Eclipse of the Heart” at New York City’s club 54 Below. These include a raspy Adele (several times), a husky Britney Spears, a soaring Celine Dion, a twangy Bernadette Peters, an animated Liza Minelli, a constricted Shakira and many more. Enjoy!
