Learn How To Sing Better Than Anyone Else

Join Now!

Today’s performance by Xiomara is a Pat Benatar classic but the song “Shadows of The Night” was rejected multiple times before finding success with Pat.

Written and composed by D.L. Byron, the song was explicitly created for the movie Times Square. However it was rejected by Byron’s label and left out of the movie because it was considered not “commercial enough”.

Two years later Benatar released the song as the lead single off of her fourth studio album and the tune went on to earn her a Grammy for Best Female Rock Vocal Performance.

Benatar’s version of the song went on to reach number 13 on the US Billboard Hot 100 and number 3 on US Billboard Top Rock Tracks.

The song was also recorded by singer Helen Schneider who saw the song go Platinum 5 times in Germany.

We hope you all enjoy Ximoara’s version of the tune and please make sure to share what you thought of her performance.

“It’s awesome. The private sections of the forum are worth the price of admission alone. I struggled with 2 different tertiary (university Level) level teachers (6 months each about 8 years ago) telling me my voice just wouldn’t be able to do what i wanted to be able to do and even if it could, the material i wanted to be able to sing would be too ‘Dangerous.’ Absolute rubbish. If you do the work thats laid out in this course, you are golden, I started in March Last year struggling to hit the E4 note in ‘Under the Bridge’ chorus now I can sing this stuff:
