Hi i came across this video and i think this guy is an awesome singer, but i was wondering what singing technique he uses through out the video?? And also at the end he slides up how does he do that?
It's mainly speech quality (sometimes called 'chest' voice). It feels very similar to speaking, hence the name, and the physical set up is the same, maybe retracted false vocal folds though (see below).
There are times that he moves higher in the range where's its more difficult to sustain, however with some appropriate muscle support he's able to sustain this.
There are some occassional higher (much higher) which he uses a new voice quality – twang (sometimes called mix)! Think nyah nyah nyah nyah nyah – brassy, annoying and bright. They balance quite well with the speech quality as they are both loud. One or two of these may have been falsetto (breathy).
The end is just a vocal slide with constriction. For vocal slides, try singing weeeeeeeeee as if you're going down a slide, then back up. It's quite easy. Constriction may be dangerous – so be responsible! It will probably come naturally if you force the slide slightly at the top end of the range. Here's a video on how to conciously control them:
In that song, go to 2:40 when Jason Mraz sings the word "hurry". I've noticed this vocal technique in many songs. Do you know what the technique is called?
Its not really a vocal technique its more like a singing style…You let out a little air to give your vocals that kinda "yelp" sound….Alot of male singers in do it..A vocal technique would be like Mariah Careys "whistle note"…..
What kind of exercises can I do to help my singing endurance. What are some technique's?
Buy Seth Riggs speech level singing book and it will help you with vocal endurance.

Jay Gruden energizes Redskins
The energy is different, as it always is when there’s a new coach. New drills, new voices, a new vibe, new storylines that don’t involve backroom drama. The Washington Redskins needed it, badly, after a 3-13 season punctuated by anonymous swipes at star players and a few at the coaches. Reputations were altered; the direction of the franchise changed. Life is calmer now for the Redskins. (Well …
