Sometimes you find a song, film, book or piece of art that really affects you. ‘Skinny Love’ does this for me. This song gives me goosebumps every time I listen to it. I can’t decide whether it makes me happy or sad … possibly both at the same time. Either way I am so completely in love with this artist. The music and her voice are so emotive and really touch the soul.
Here she is doing a cover of ‘Skinny Love’ originally by Bon Iver. Please have a look, I promise you will not regret it.
What I find hard to believe is that this beautiful singer Birdy is only 15 years old, still at high school in the UK, sitting exams and dealing with life as a teenager. Birdy (aka Jasmine van den Bogaerde) was discovered when she won the Open Mic UK competition in 2008 at the young age of 12. Thank goodness for us!
I can’t find her album ‘Birdy’ here in Australia yet but I’m holding out till the day it arrives. What amazing talent she has! Such a blessing on the world.
