Legit is a style of singing used occasionally in musical theatre or other contemporary commercial music styles. The term is typically used to describe a classically influenced singing style for female vocalists featuring a more cricothyroid-dominant (head voice or thin fold) voice production of sound with taller and rounder vowel shapes. This might also be accompanied by more legato, consistent vibrato, and longer phrase lengths.
