    Default Cruise ship singer

    Yesterday on the British edition of the X Factor Gary Barlow told to Sami that she sang like a cruise ship singer. What did he mean by that?

    The singers employed by cruise ship companies to entertain the guests on board a long cruise tend to sing a particular type of song in a particular way.

    If you Google "Jane McDonald" you will find some examples. Here is one from YouTube: Jane McDonald - One Night Only - The Alan Titchmarsh Show - YouTube

    These types of singers usually appear in stage musicals, West End shows, sing on cruise liners and the opening of sporting events.
