It's a lot of fun to get to do a duet. Number one, you get to sing with another person. It's fun to play off of that other person, whether it's on the record, or live on stage, or both. It's a lot of fun to get to do. And then you might ask, well, how do you practice doing a duet? Well, you just keep singing it back and forth, over and over. And then when you really get to do it on stage-- sing the duet onstage, it's a lot of fun because that eye contact. How much do you do eye contact with the person you're singing with? And then how much do you go with the audience? So that's what you have to practice. [MUSIC - REBA MCENTIRE, "DOES HE LOVE YOU"] I've known about you, for a while now. When he leaves me he wears a smile now. As soon as he's away from me, in your arms is where he wants to be. But you're the one he rushes home to. And you're the one he gave his name to. Well, I never see his face in the early morning light. You have his mornings, his daytimes, and sometimes I have his nights. Oh, does he love you-- does he love you, like he loves me-- like he loves me? Does he think of you-- does he think of you, when he's holding me? And does he whisper-- does he whisper all his fantasies? Does he love you-- does he love you, like he's been loving me? Oh, but when he's with me, he says he needs me. And that he wants me. That he believes in me. And when I'm in his arms, he swears there's no one else. Is he deceiving me or am I deceiving myself? Am I deceiving myself? Oh, does he love you-- does he love you, like he loves me-- like he loves me? Does he think of you-- does he think of you, when he's holding me? And does he whisper-- does he whisper all his fantasies? Does he love you-- does he love you, like he's been loving me? Well I should not lose my temper. I should not be ashamed. Cause I have everything to lose. And I-- I have nothing to gain. Does he love you-- does he love you, like he loves me-- like he loves me? Does he think of you-- does he think of you, when he's holding me? And does he whisper-- does he whisper all his fantasies? Does he love you-- does he love you, like he's been loving me? Oh, does he love you? Jennifer Wrinkle helped me out with that song. I appreciate you very much, Jen. See, it's very important to just find somebody that you have fun singing with onstage. Somebody that likes to-- that will spar with you a little bit. Or just sing a real sad song or a happy song, either one. We have fun onstage and that's the most important thing about doing a duet. A duet is to have fun. And Jennifer does it for me. Thank you very much Jennifer. I hope that helps you a bunch on how to sing a duet. Finding the song's very important. Make sure it's fun. And make sure you find a good duet partner to sing with you.

Reviews

4.7
Students give MasterClass an average rating of 4.7 out of 5 stars.

The classes are just what I was hoping for in terms of what I believe I'm missing as a singer song writer

Reba has so much experience to tell us about. I wish her lessons were a bit longer because I learn so much from listening to her.

Reba is so kind, and thoughtful about leading people through the process. Her relationship with herself, her parents, and her business partners is a great example of working in the Music Industry with grace.

Great Class! Lots of stories about the music business. I wanted more. Thanks Reba!

I love that song, and how both of you sang it! Thank you so much for your master class. I enjoyed it very much.

Really enjoyed this masterclass and the master Reba. I hoped to write a Country song but her majestic manner and talent makes me want to be a great song writer. Thank you.

Great performance! Thanks, Jennifer & Reba! I'm not a performer myself, but I've learned a lot about the performer's toolkit and mindset in this class.

I am so grateful you had Reba on this Master Class. I have been wanting to write music for a long time, but have never felt like I am good enough. I've spent most of my life in the military and law enforcement serving others and have not pursued what I really enjoy which is music. After watching her, I am truly inspired to write music again. At 54 years of age, I wish I had an opportunity to have one of my songs heard, but feel like my ship has sailed; however, after watching this, I feel like I shouldn't give up on my dream of one day having my song heard on the radio. Thank you for these classes. God bless!

I saw Reba and Jennifer perform the song on stage at Wolf Trap on July 1, 2018. They did it even better at the concert!

Wow! Great pairing. The voices complimented each other really well. Styles are close but not identical which is a great fit for this song especially. Brava, ladies! A bonus indeed.

Connie L.

Loved the duet as a bonus! Enjoyed taking this class and appreciate Reba's style and technique!
