Practice for “Beauty and the Beast”

I practiced yesterday in my room for thirty minutes. I also recorded myself during this time to see how I sound to other people. I am not liking my voice right now and am feeling this song needs me to sing in an accent. I’m not sure if this is because personal dislike of my sound or because I’ve listened to the song to help learn it and the singer has an accent. I am going to practice again today with vocal projection and then again with possible accents.
