Ummm, gotta go with Donny on this one. I listened to her 'God Bless the Child' and thought, Billy (Holiday) must be turning over in her grave. The band arrangement was great, though, especially the horns. JMO.

Well that does change things. She's doing very 'mature' (challenging) material for a 16 yr. old, so I'll have to revise my critique and say that she's definitely on the right track and doing good tunes. She really is very cute, maybe TOO cute to be taken seriously as a jazz singer . Still, she's already done larger venues than most of us have, so obviously, someone thinks she's got the goods. Plus, it's gratifying to see young people do something besides pop and rock. I wish her good luck and a successful career.

Within a year she'll be a thing of the past in todays music scene.Someone just making money off her short stay and will move on just as fast to the next & best. Just the way it is out there.

i think she is actually quite good. she doesnt have the seasoned maturity in phrasing that comes only through time and experienced but she certainly has the foundation to be a decent singer.

She oversings too much. A lot of artists do this and sometimes it works out ok and other times it just sounds like a hot mess. She is sort of in between. If a song has been really well crafted with a good melody and lots of space for the words to seep through your soul , why mess it up with sometimes completly unrelated riffs that dont suit the genre of music and dont help tell the story of the song ? anyway best of luck to her. She has at least picked songs to sing that have a melody !!!!

I think its her age that is her selling point. Loved the band arrangerment though.

What are you guys talking about...the 16 year old girl is excellent...She has as much vocal control and stage presence than Diana Krall...at her age...

One year and out...NO WAY!!!!
