Why? : Her voice is hauntingly beautiful and has a maturity that sounds close to impossible for her age at the time of the release and its also hard to believe but true that this album was her first release as an artist. Plus the cover where perfectly chosen and arranged for her to showcase that peace and calm she evokes.
