  • Because they open their mouths more when they sing than when they talk. If you notice a Brit speaking like an American, their mouths open up more.

  • it's like people who stutter can sing without missing a beat

  • I think I remember something in a class years ago about how you sing with the other side of your brain than what you speak with and that (singing) side isn't affected by accents...not sure, just something I remember hearing.
