T-Pain doesn't need Auto-Tune, as proved by his concert for NPR.
T-Pain - or as he's known to many, the king of Auto-Tune. Well, it turns out this guy has a pretty beautiful voice and really doesn't need to be hiding it with those awful effects. Jay-Z tried unsuccessfully to put the Auto-Tune crazy to bed with D.O.A on Blueprint 3 but it now looks as though it's curtains for the favoured production technique, given its main proponent doesn't...really need it. At all.
Turns out T-Pain really doesn't need to use Auto-Tune on his records.
In a NPR Tiny Desk concert that went viral this week, T-Pain perplexed everyone by singing normally. And it was rather good. This is a guy who didn't just use Auto-Tune to correct pitchy singing - he very deliberately used it to distort his voice.

Out on June 2, Chris Brown was partying just days later.
In the world of fallen celebrities this week, Chris Brown is out of jail and his girlfriend Karrueche Tran is chair of the “welcome home” committee. Brown got released after spending 80 days behind bars for violating his probation in the Rihanna case of 2009. Back in October of 2013, he got in an altercation in Washington, for which he got a total of 108 days in correctional facilities, including rehab.
Now that Brown is out of jail, will he get back to music?
All of that seemed forgotten at Brown’s 2-in-1 homecoming and birthday celebration – he turned 25 on May 5, but a party obviously wasn’t an option at that point. Tran posted several photos from the night, including one snap of herself, giving Brown a kiss – in case we were confused about their relationship maybe.
