"Behind every weakness hides a talent!" is Dr. Karin Wettig's personal revelation. With her divorce came an almost total loss of her speaking voice. When voice therapy didn't heal her, she decided to look for a cure in singing. Mozart Arias & her passion for Belcanto, Maria Callas, Adelina Patti and the divas of Caruso's time found a home in her heart, never to depart.

The result is this book: An intuitive, heartfelt, yet practical approach to achieving excellence in Belcanto through effortless singing. "Body & voice awareness is the ke
