Making eyes at Lena
I had no idea who this was when I saw it, but I picked it up because it looked interesting. Littlest pop star sort of thing, I guessed. From her wiki page: "With her album Ma! (He's Making Eyes At Me) at ten years of age, she is the youngest person in history to have an album in the top ten of the UK Albums Chart." Well!
I was looking at the tracklist and thought 'wow, "River Deep - Mountain High"!' The Deep Purple cover of that tune was an instant favorite of mine. She does a nice job with it.
She was a talented kid who unfortunately died very young. Quite a sad story. More info on her here and here.
Listen to her rendition of "River Deep - Mountain High" here:
