Okay, I know that Simone is considered a mezzo soprano. But there are, as far as I know, three "types" of mezzo.

Mezzo Coloratura - These singers are capable of real flexibility and agility (like a mezzo version of Sharon, who can perform all sorts of fast vocal passages); this is a rare voice type, or fach

Lyric Mezzo - The most common kind, it is lachrymose, beautiful, etc.

Dramatic Mezzo - These singers can sing over a full orchestral climax, their voice soaring up and over the sound of the orchestra.

Now, does anyone have an idea which one is Simone???

From your description of each voice, I'd put Simone as a Lyric Mezzo, but I know FA about this sort of thing.
I always thought Sharon was a soprano, not a mezzo-soprano.

Sharon is probably a Lyric Coloratura Soprano. That's what I meant. Wink

I'd say a bit of lyric mezzo and a bit of dramatic mezzo.
