TheBoo Yep I was a little worried too, but I very much enjoyed her rendition of this song.
Theresa111 She has a rich voice and one that should be recorded.
LAveryBrown Impressive! No need to wonder where her daughter got her talent.
askcherlock Terrific rendition of Etta James' standard. She did it proud.
