Here’s an artist I’m not familiar with at all but she’s making some news with a new website and upcoming performance in the Big Apple, New York City.
After visiting her website she’s got a really strong voice and the song “Beautiful, Beautiful” sounds really good as well as “Behind the Scenes”. You can listen to samples of both of these songs, as well as others, from her website as well.
