Believe it or not but I had a lesson with a vocal coach to decide what kind of voice I had for a choir while I was in drama school. I told her too that I couldn't sing for shit. She replied "that's what everybody thinks. That just because they're not born with a good voice or are able to hold a note, you can't sing. But it's not true. Everybody can sing. Because everybody sings".
It's not about insisting that she can sing. EVERYBODY CAN SING. What is ugly for one can be beautiful to others. But she does indeed sing. and professionally too, she gets paid to do it.
So people really need to back off deciding what is singing and what is not. Especially when they don't know the difference between the concept singing and singing to ones liking. Either you like it or you don't. But I'm afraid it's not up to any one of us to decide if she can sing or not.
So the person you were paying for singing lessons told you you can sing so you didn't just throw in the towel and had more lessons, I am shocked, shocked!!!!!!!!
She sounds awful on that clip, the only time Geri's voice songs decent is when she sings low and does gravely tones. There is a reason she was given those kind of parts in spice girls songs and not the high ad libs.
