Here's a new video from Katie. Nice to hear someone singing the proper words to this song. Unfortunately I couldn't embed it, the YouTube settings won't allow it, so you will have to click on the link.
Finally got to hear Katie at the Oakham Festival this evening, and meet her afterwards. She actually recognised me and walked up to say hello, even though we had never met before. She really is a very fine singer, and it is hard to believe she is only 15 years old. Here is part of her performance. And look, no microphone...
Well, this is what I missed while I was in Peterborough Cathedral listening to Classical Reflection. Katie's concert in Oakham was on at the same time. Dark Waltz is not an easy song to sing, I heard so many singers mess it up. Young Katie nailed it. Fabulous. Blown away! In my book, if anyone is "the new Hayley" it is Katie.
I'm afraid once again you will have to watch it on YouTube though. Either click on the image and then on the YouTube icon at the bottom, or use this URL:
Well I usually avoid posting in 'other artists' threads, Hayley is enough for me and few others ever come close. Though I do dip in from time to time and I have to say, I can see in Katie 's singing a noticeable improvement since last year. That's an impressive performance of Dark Waltz, this girl could go far.
It won't be easy though as the big Classical Crossover boom ended a few years ago, things are tougher these days I think. I hope she does well, she definitely has the voice for it.
