T-Pain is a writer, singer and rapper who has been dubbed "The King of auto-tune." But as Robin Meade found out during a visit to his studio, unlike most singers who use the pitch correction process, T-Pain isn't using auto-tune to make him a good singer, he's using it to turn his voice into an instrument.

Take a listen to the stripped down T-Pain and get a preview of his new song Coming Home which will have its World Premiere on Morning Express with Robin Meade in the 8 a.m. ET hour only on HLN.

Betty Who Sings

Watch: Betty Who sings 'Somebody Loves You'

I met singer/songwriter Betty Who, who made it big when a marriage proposal video featuring her music went viral, on a rainy October day at Chicago’s House of Blues. She greeted me with this beaming bright smile. She was funny, energetic yet easygoing. The Australian-born singer could easily become someone's best friend in a matter of minutes.

The video above of Betty singing an acoustic version of her song “Somebody Loves You” was shot early in the evening that day. But my crew and I stayed for the concert that same night.  I operated the center camera from the audio booth, while CNN’s Chicago photojournalists David Ruff and Jake Carpenter filmed near the stage.
