LET GET READY TO SOPRANOOOOOOO!!!est form of singing where female performers hit the highest note while singing their songs. Key words to describe soparanos are whistle register, songbird, four octave, and five octave. To be a soprano, singers vocal range must reach at least four octaves, if I am not mistaken. Female sopranos can be compared to opera singers since they hold their notes for long period of time. I hope you.enjoyed my title of this column, which is designed to make people laugh. I thought the guy who always says let's get ready to rumble was a soprano without music, lol.
