What is a good alto song for a senior recital?

I am a senior in highschool and I have a senior recital. I am an alto but I can't go very low. I can sing mezzo soprano too. The genre doesn't really matter except I don't want any country. This is my last show in highschool so I want a song that is inspirational. I also don't want a song thats very pop style. Anyways, thank you so much for the help.

    I take it you're in between alto and mezzo-soprano then, considering that you can't hit the low notes but can hit high notes to some extent. I have several inspirational songs in my library in that sort of range, but I'll list a few here! Feel free to consider them.

    Also take note that some are songs by male singers; in the alto/soprano octave, the notes are easily reachable by altos.

    Here's some songs focused more on indie/alternative, although they have some pop elements.

    Corinne Bailey Rae - Put Your Records On

    He Is We - And Run

    Jason Mraz - The Remedy

    States - Time to Begin

    These are the more "poppy" kind of songs:

    Jordin Sparks - One Step at a Time

    Katy Perry - Firework

    Pink - Raise Your Glass

    Raven - This Is My Time

    Sam Tsui - Start Again

    AND finally, the inspiration powerhouse songs:

    Suzie McNeil - Believe

    and the closing number in the movie "Fame" - Hold Your Dreams.

    Here's a link to the musical number:

    In the link, snippets of the song are played at the beginning and end of the finale.

    The actual piece will be hard to perform/play/locate, but if you do manage to pull it off, the experience will definitely be magical!

    All in all, good luck with your senior recital, and hope I helped!

    Well, you could try Defying Gravity, Finally Falling, or Year Without Rain...

    Or... if you want something older, you could try ANY Kelly Clarkson song or even a song from a broadway musical like Mamma Mia! or Hairspray. I hope this helps you and good luck!
