Nick Pitera

Nick Pitera is the well-⁠known baritone who, with an astonishing falsetto range and a voice that’s protean, is able to interpret male and female parts with equal ease, a talent he puts to good use as a singer, underscoring a passage with his thrilling growl one moment and reaching the very high notes à la Beyoncé the next. Frequently the transition from one to the other is so sudden it’s vertiginous; so I’d almost recommend that one only listen to his videos and close one’s eyes – were it not for the fact that he’s a very confident performer as well, almost brash, and great fun to watch. (If things had worked out for him a bit differently, he’d have made his way in the film business not as an animator but as an actor.)
