Alot of people seem to be seething about how Maria doesn't "sing" or that her singing sucks. Her native language is NOT English, and her native language is very nasal and bronchial intensive. She does sing, just not in the overdone style like Britney Spears or the rest. She belts out every word meaning what she is singing, the songs are very heartfelt, and her attitude is one to match them. As far her not really "singing" and just "talking" the words, this is nothing new if you're into music at all. Alot of artists omit singing, or even music for that part. Bobby McFerrin's "Don't worry, be happy." had ONE instrument, and that was a bongo, the rest was some cheesy lyrics and some whistling, along with a slapstick video starring Robin Williams, but that was still more than enough to create a hit single. Maria Mena is a talented artist, she just doesn't get the credit she deserves.
