There's a new sensation coming from across the pond, and she's only 15 years old. In 2008 she took the title at Open Mic UK at only 12 years old. And now in 2012 she's here to stay and seems ready to compete with the likes of Adele. The world better be ready, because Birdy sure is.
Here's the song "So Be Free" that she performed on the European show to win the competition, beating out 10,000 other contestants in the process.
Birdy aka Jasmine van den Bogaerde, burst on the scene last year in January when she released an absolutely beautiful cover of Bon Iver's 'Skinny Love', which cracked the UK Singles Chart Top 20. Her self titled album Birdy dropped in November, and it has been a pretty quick rise to the top ever since!
Here's her incredible take on the Bon Iver hit.
In July 2011, Jasmine performed on BBC's Radio 1 Live Lounge. She played two incredible covers, doing The xx's "Shelter" and Ed Sheeran's "The A Team". The debut album was released on November 7th, and the album peaked 13 in the UK. Not bad for the daughter of a concert pianist that will have the world in her hands by years end.
Here's Birdy's Radio 1 Live Lounge performance of "The A Team".
The more I hear, the more I like. Keep it up girl, you already remind me of Tori Amos with your piano skills.
Here's her latest effort "Just A Game" from the upcoming Hunger Games soundtrack. Can't wait to hear what's next!
