I was planning to write a blog post today that in some way demonstrated my own brilliance (yehr... still drawing a blank there) but why not let Heather Russell be brilliant instead.
She's ten years old, Canadian, and has just been signed by Simon Cowell as "the female Justin Bieber" (who is also a Canadian).
I love watching singers... can't quite get enough. I come from a family of professional ones; my dad was a singer before entering television, my sister is a singer, my brother-in-law, and his dad is John Paul Young (Love is in the air... every time I look around...) - love it.
If you haven't seen this clip already, watch this little ten-year-old do her thing... James would agree: she's got soul.
What do you think? Is she too young for a recording contract? Is it kind of weird that the web URL on the clip takes you to half-naked pictures of Beyonce and Lady Gaga? Are child singers the new black?
