Default A Question about singing?

Hmm I was wondering if someone could tell me, can a Baritone singer hit the Legendary Tenor C (C5) with a head voice (NO FALSETTO)? I mean sustain it, for atleast 5 - 6 secs.

I'm asking this question because I can sing up to high D (that means Tenor C AND HIGH D) and when I asked a friend of mine, he said: Hmm...think you're baritone...dunno...

And some people say I'm a baritone, some say I'm a tenor.
THE LOWEST NOTE I can sing is A2, and the HIGHEST D4 (without falsetto). I can sustain Tenor C for 10 - 11 sec.

I can't post my recording link here since I haven't got 15 posts I'll just ask you to search YouTube "My Vocal Range (without Falsetto) by Vengean and tell me your opinion about my voice.

Since I'm a great dilema about the musicians, some of them classify me as a baritone, and most of them classify me as a tenor.

No. Just no.
"HATE, although an overrated concept, is just one of the basic building blocks of society, and although it does not cause PROGRESS, it does cause society to change, be it for the better or for the worse.

LOVE, on the other hand, does cause PROGRESS. Or, at least some type of MORAL MOTIVATION does. Without one of these, there would be no WARS, no REVOLUTIONS, no RISE or FALL of societies, groups or belief systems." --JK Smith

Are you male or female? Because female voices are generally divided up into Soprano,
Mezzo-soprano, and Contralto, while male voices are the ones you mentioned (Countertenor, Tenor, Baritone, Bass, etc). If you're a guy it sounds like you'd be a tenor or countertenor. But really, does it matter what name you put to what you can sing? Voices are so unique that they rarely fit into one single category.

I'm a male (a boy) . Well I know, I was just wondering because my voice doesn't sound light and easy, it's just a bit deeper and anyway, I can hit those high notes with ease...but I guess there's a difference in the vocal weight from tenor to tenor, so I'll stick with it I guess
