THIS IS NOT WHAT I EXPECTED

When I saw this video of Courtney Hadwin, I thought, "Oh...What a cute little 13 year old."  I expected her to start singing a song and a sound like LeAnn Rimes to come out of that adorable girl.

SHE'S GOT THE 'IT' FACTOR

Much to my surprise she belted it out..but it wasn't a LeeAnn Rimes voice. First of all, I remember starting my singing career at 13. I was performing at the Spanish Club Variety show in Princeton Minnesota, singing and playing the piano, without a microphone; a compilation of Journey songs and an original; I think. I couldn't even look  up.

Courtney on the other hand, appears to be nervous; but as the case may be, she can get lost in her performance and that's just what she did. She started off kind of....different.  I wasn't sure if this was going to be an epic fail or an epic performance. Once you watch the video...I think you'll agree...This was an Epic success!
