Adele and Ingrid Michaelson have a love child!
If any of you know me at all, I have probably raved to you about either Ingrid Michaelson, Adele, both simultaneously, or some other singer/songwriter that makes me hot and gets my undercarriage all sweaty. Why it is that music has that effect on me is a topic for a whole other post entirely, which I'm sure will come one day. But on to the subject of this post: I am obsessed with a 16 year old girl!
Now before you get all weirded out on me, that's not how I roll. Calmin' it down, calmin' it down... The reason why that notion is absolutely preposterous is also the topic for another post, another day. Nay, I am obsessed with this new girl that I stumbled upon on YouTube a fortnight ago, and she is just so darn talented! Here's the sitch:
- Name: Birdy
- Age: 16!! (are you kidding me? Yup. She's really only 16.)
- Nationality: British (so of course she's automatically super hip)
- Style: Adele's soul meets Ingrid's acoustic heavenlyness. It really is like they had a love child and hid her in an old converted mill in the UK.
- Why's she so good? See for yourself.
Want some more? Liked that feeling of your soul squirming and sailing and weeping all at once? I bet you did. Sicko.
More! More! It's like Music Crack! Mrack!
Granted, all of these songs are covers of songs written by other people, but that's not what is so amazing. It's her talent mixed with the sincerity and genuineness that reaches somewhere inside your soul and makes your gut twist and a tear come to your eye. Needless to say, watch out for this chica because in 10 years when her voice fills out even more, Imma lose it in mah pants.
Summary: I love her. Also, I'm not a pedophile.
