MRI Scan Reveals The AMAZING Movement Of An Opera Singer’s Tongue.

Opera singers have incredibly powerful pipes, and it's amazing home much control they maintain when bellowing the loudest, deepest, and most beautiful notes.

Michael Volle is a baritone opera singer, and in the video below, he treats us to a performance of "Song to the Evening Star" from Wagner's opera, Tannhäuser. The only thing is, we don't see Volle actually performing the piece: Instead, it's an MRI scan of his profile while he sings, showing us just what the throat and tongue do as he transitions between each note. The effect is absolutely mesmerizing -- who knew so much was going on in there?
