Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star by Julia Grace

Description
This song (recorded Jan. 2005) was sung by my granddaughter when she was 21 months old. She sang it a cappella on pitch in the key of C on the first take, which I hadn't realized until I brought out the guitar to see if I could add the chords. So with guitar and synth added I uploaded it to MacJams on 1/19/05. It came down when I closed my account in August of 2008 after having accumulated over 8,000 hits. I posted it at MacIdol about three years ago and today it's now #6 in total song plays going back to 2004. Song art above was taken during our little session.

It still amazes me that at 21 months she sang this!

All that to say, I'm re-posting it here, as it should be here. But also, as an excuse to add the video below from this past Thanksgiving. We had just finished Thanksgiving dinner and I asked Julia (9 years old) if she would sing a song for us. I pulled out my iPod Touch and hit the video record as she got on a roll belting some of here favorite songs and artists (e.g. Taylor Swift and Adele). That's her younger sister, Carrie, backing her up ;-) Enjoy:

For some reason I can't get the Video to embed here. Used to be able to do it. I will post it in forums if I can't make it happen.

Got it... by using the older YouTube embed code.



Video of her encore performance is in New Forum Posts and can be seen here---> Julia Unplugged

What a wonderful Moment
A Star is discovered and young lady you have some powerful voice. I hope you have a wonderful Christmas and I'm going to write Santa and tell him that he must listen to this angel on MacJams.

Merry Christmas Julia

My students are working on music for an upcoming holiday concert. I often find myself taking a moment to just take in the sound. There is no more beautiful a sound on this earth than that of children singing. Thanks for sharing this Jack!

A copy of my comment on the Julia Unplugged thread:

Wow wow. Completely fantastic! Hope you will keep developing your own style Julia. Not to be coloured by the styles of established artist, because your much better than most of them. The easiness and joy of your voice is very very rare! It is a treat to hear! Made my day!
