One of the first classical pieces I learned to love was Tomasio Albinoni’s Adagio. I now discovered that it’s also been done in a version with some of my favorite boys – Il Divo:
I also found a version with a singer called Zara. It’s such a beautiful tune, that it hardly matters what they to it, it’s still great.
It was an old friend who loved it himself who introduced me to it and I have loved it ever since. If he’s reading this blog he’ll propely be pleased that I remember him for this tune. On the other hand I’m pretty sure another very classic true friend would rip his hair out just thinking about anything but the original. Judge for yourself, here is one for every taste.
Just now I came across this young guy whho appearantly was in the Itallian verion of X-Factor. His called. Nicola Gargaglia (official website under construction) and if Alexandra Burke gives me goosbombs (she does bigtime), this guy does too – like the judges said about Alexandra – “In a league of his own” – listen:
Hun har så nu helt berettiget vundet X-Factor i England og hende skal der herfra holdes øje med fremover. Afhængig af, hvilken genre hun slår sig på. Men bliver hun “i stilen” så er jeg aftager af hende. Wow! Nu er det jo Jul, så her får I en Julesang med hende og den er ikke mindre fantastisk – utrolig stemme. Hun er helt utroligt rørende….lyt og få gåsehud!
It was Tina in London who had an entry (in Danish) about this fantastic singer – Alexandra Burke (official site), where she sings “Halleluja”, so you get goosebumbs all over.
She has now very rightly won X-Factor in England, and I’ll keep an eye out from her in the future. Dependend on which stile she chooses. But if she contiues the way she has begun, I’ll buy her CD’s. Wow! Now it’s Christmas, so I’ll give you a Christmas song with her, and that’s just as amazing – incredible voice. She is unbelievably touching – listen and get the gooseboombs.
