Music talent shows created so many stars globally. But in my opinion the brightest, and also the humblest, of them is British singer Leona Lewis who won the UK X Factor edition back in 2006. Ten years have passed, but Leona never lost her romantic and socially involved personality.
Among all the charity initiatives, the one that is probably the most important for Leona is the prevention of dogs’ abuses round the world. In order to sustain even harder this cause and raise up funds, she teamed up with the prolific author Diane Warren and together they created the wonderful ballad We Are All Looking For Home.
I just have one word to describe the track. Wow. Leona‘s voice is so naturally beautiful and passionate, that you just can’t help but to fall in love with the song. Plus the cause for which this song has been written is so important. Think that the Daily Mail reported that China’s annual Yulin dog meat festival sees hundred of dogs and cats crammed into rusty cages and then sold to be skinned, boiled and then eaten. How can such a cruelty still exist in 2016?
Enjoy the wonderful hymn of Leona to protect our beautiful furry friends. Enjoy We Are Looking For Home.
In less than two months the 2016 edition of the Euro Vision Song Contest will open its doors to the European most talented artists on the music scene. This year the EVSC will be held in Sweden after the 2015 win of Måns Zelmerlöw.
Since last year the EVSC decided to invite also Australia to attend this awesome musical banquet. Not a wise choice i.m.o. The Aussies indeed decided to proclaim 2013 X Factor winner Dami Im as their ambassadress in the old continent.
Dami Im is simply awesome. 170 cm of pure energy, talent and class. Her version of Prince‘s Purple Rain travelled all around the globe during her X Factor journey with Dannii Minogue. After many hits like Super Love and Gladiator in her homeland, the petite Aussie-Korean bomb will show to Europe what she’s made of with the Sound of Silence.
The track has literally everything it takes to become an anthem. Perfect eerie background matched with soft drums let Dami‘s voice starts this love song about distance and loneliness which culminates with a powerful chorus that will awake even the most distracted listeners.
It’s still to early to say something about the competition, but watch out Europe…Australia is ready to play one of her best cards. Enjoy Dami in the Sound Of Silence.
