There’s a lot of old songs I can listen to over and over. Here’s a new one.
I actually became aware of this song on this week’s episode of “The Voice.” Must have been living under a rock lately.
This young woman has health problems as serious as her talent. I hope she will be around for a long time to come – amazing artist.
Jessie J (born Jessica Ellen Cornish on 27 March 1988) is an English singer-songwriter. She signed a record deal with Island Records and began recording her debut album, Who You Are.
She first saw fame when she began writing songs for American singers Chris Brown and Miley Cyrus. The most successful track she co-wrote is “Party in the U.S.A.”, which gained platinum certification in many countries. On 7 January 2011, Jessie J came top of the BBC’s Sound of 2011 list. She followed this in February by receiving Critics’ Choice at the 2011 BRIT Awards.
She released her first single “Do It Like a Dude”, which peaked at 2 in the UK. Jessie released her follow-up single, “Price Tag” which went straight to number-one in the United Kingdom, Ireland and New Zealand and top ten in 19 other countries. It remained at number-one in the UK for two consecutive weeks. Her debut album was released on 25 February 2011 and charted at number-two on the UK Albums Chart…
…Jessie J has had an irregular heartbeat since the age of 11, and suffered a minor stroke at the age of 18. As a result, she doesn’t drink alcohol or smoke. Jessie said: “At 11 I was diagnosed with an irregular heartbeat. I had wires put in my shoulder, groin and heart to try and zap it to a normal rhythm, but it didn’t really work. Then, at 18, I suffered a minor stroke. It was scary, but I’m fine now. Having bad health has made me realise I can’t take anything for granted and I must look after my body.” (Wikipedia)

I had originally linked to the album version of this song, which has since been made private. Currently, the only versions of this song that are available are the acoustic/live versions of which I am not much of a fan, but it’s still a great song, even if I don’t love the rendition…
