Singing voice

Hi everyone! When someone uses good techniques and puts all his/her heart and soul in a song they sing. Is it correct to say "He/She has good singing techniques and his/her singing voice is very soulful."

Your answers will be greatly appreciated.

Technique is one of those peculiar words whose idiomatic usage doesn't always match the reality of what it seeks to describe.

Skilful singers use a number of different techniques to achieve their sound, but idiomatically speaking, they are still only using "good technique".

To make your wording sound as natural as possible, I would adjust it thus:

"He/she has good singing technique. He/she also sings very soulfully."

Of course, having a well-trained voice is not quite the same as being able to sing soulfully, though it can be a wonderful experience to listen to a singer who has mastered both these aspects of their craft.
