Singer like this professional keeping a name (7)
I believe the answer is:
Here is my best explanation:
'singer' is the definition.
(soprano is a kind of singer)
'like this professional keeping a name' is the wordplay.
'like this' becomes 'so'.
'professional' becomes 'pro' ('pro' can be a synonym of 'professional').
'keeping' indicates putting letters inside.
'a name' becomes 'an' (I've seen this in other clues).
'pro' going around 'an' is 'prano'.
(Other definitions for soprano that I've seen before include "chorus girl, perhaps", "Singer of high notes", "Isolde, Violetta or 25", "Sutherland?", "Highest adult female voice", "Woman singing", "gangster", "Singing voice", "Female singer" and "Producer of high-pitched sounds".)
