While I am not a fan of reality TV I was lucky enough to catch the Australian version of The Voice just as this young girl singer came on and she was mesmerizing. What’s even more amazing she spent a lot of her short years living on the streets before becoming a ward of the state. At only 19 yrs of age she found music after being fostered to a family who owned a music store teaching her how to play guitar. Never had a singing lesson in her life just listened to some of those classic rock stars while at the music store I guess. Karise Eden sounds like Janis Joplin, Adele & Amy Winehouse all at once. She sings a Amy Winehouse song better than what Amy ever did. I hope she wins, she deserves too.
I Hope the links work for the non Aussie viewers. The bottom clip is the sing off against a New Zealand girl who was also good.
