A Tiny Singing Phenomenon!
Remember this song anyone? Cher sang it in 1966, it was written by her then husband Sonny Bono and released as an album song. I never gave it much credence as a folk/blues song until very recently when I happened upon a 7 year old Angelina Jordan who sang it as one of her contest round songs on Norway’s got Talent, Norway really does have talent, this young lady is phenomenal both at 7 and at 16 when she covers Adele’s Easy on Me.
So this young lady won Norway’s got Talent at the tender age of 7. It’s not hard to see why. A child prodigy, yes, but not just any cute little 7 year old can take on the old classic blues/jazz songs and sing the hell out of them! Her repertoire is extensive and covers a number of different genres.
In this video, she is just 16 years of age and singing a cover of Adele’s ‘Go easy on me.’ Now far be it from me to say anything controversial about Adele or her undoubted talent, but I have to say, I prefer the warmer tones of Angelina over the sharp clarity of Adele’s tone in this song. Don’t shoot me, it’s a personal preference and I adore Adele and respect her ability to write some absolutely stunning songs, but Angelina has a softer, more rounded vocalisation that just makes my ears sing.
Hope you enjoy these two offerings from a very talented young lady who just keeps getting better.
