I didn't even realize I was singing with vibrato until a judge at an SCA
bardic competition decades ago commented on it. It can be entirely
(And in the curious coincidences department, that judge was Ariel . . .)

Interesting you should bring this up... I am a mezzo and I had a voice
teacher in college who was also a mezzo and her take on a 'good' verbrato
was one that was not forced, but rather occurred naturally as part of the
natural over and under tones of a note. I.e. you didn't need it to sound
great, but if it occurred as a natural part of your singing/style, than it
could enhance or complement your sound. On the flip side, a forced verbrato
sounds forced and does not add to the beauty of your sound.
Just my two cents...
