I stumbled upon this cd on the listening section at Border's bookstore nearby. I take a quick listen and suddenly after a the first 30 seconds of Happy Ever After, I just decided to buy it! It was a treasure to listen to the voice that sings the soul. Pure and tender, tragic and loving, all in the same breath.
What is it that grasps me? The "IT" thing that just click, the feeling that it is going to be my favorite tune for a long time.
Now I am living in another country and I have enjoyed the company of Julia whenever I drive my car and the darkness of the road is passing me by. I once whistled the Happy Ever After tune and my colleague (a girl) just jumped and asked me where I got it. Funny that she was the third persons who acknowledge the tune, considering in this far country nobody play her record on air.
How could they know? I ended up copying the cd for her since there is no copy in the local record stores to be found. What is it about her that really moves the girls? The sincerity, the voice, the tales and of course the remarkable passion that put her in the hearts.
Too bad not much information about her exist, nor the fact that most critics don't even like her. Whatever it is, the truth is always be with the faithful listeners. Like somebody once said, if heaven does exist, there must be angels with a voice like Julia's.
