Tenor audition songs that can be sung acapella?
I'm trying to find an audition song for my high school's musical. The audition is tomorrow, but I haven't been able to find anything... It would be easy for me to find one, but there's a problem. The director wants the vocal auditions to be acapella this year. I'm coming up short on ideas, because any of the songs I've liked or am good at have strong and quite necessary accompaniment. I'm a baritone/tenor. In the last production I was in, Children Of Eden, I played Japheth and sang In Whatever Time We Have. If you google that and click on the youtube link at the top on the right side with the album cover, you can listen to that as an example of my range. I've been looking at This Is The Moment from Jekyll and Hyde, but although accompaniment isn't entirely necessary and it could be pulled off, I don't think it would be a very good choice for acapella. Anyway, the musical I'm auditioning for is Smile, and I'm looking for a ballad, preferably NOT from an extremely well know show like Rent or Wicked. I'm looking for something that doesn't have much accompaniment, or the accompaniment isn't necessary to guide the melody. Thanks!
