Empire State of Mind, Part 2, Alicia Keys - Covered by Imogen Spendlove (age 10)

Lyrics:
Grew up in a town that is famous as the place of movie scenes,
Noise is always loud, there are sirens all around and the streets are mean,
If I can make it here, I can make it anywhere, that's what they say,
Seeing my face in lights or my name in marquees found down on Broadway!
Even if it ain't all it seems, I got a pocketful of dreams,
Baby, I'm from New York,
Concrete jungle where dreams are made of,
There's nothing you can't do,
Now you're in New York,
These streets will make you feel brand new,
Big lights will inspire you,
Let's hear it for New York, New York, New York!

On the avenue, there ain't never a curfew, ladies work so hard,
Such a melting pot, on the corner selling rock, preachers pray to God,
Hail a gypsy cab, takes me down from Harlem to the Brooklyn Bridge,
Some will sleep tonight with a hunger for more than an empty fridge!

I'm gonna make it by any means, I got a pocketful of dreams,
Baby, I'm from New York,
Concrete jungle where dreams are made of,
There's nothing you can't do,
Now you're in New York,
These street will make you feel brand new,
Big lights will inspire you,
Let's hear it for New York, New York, New York!

One hand in the air for the big city,
Street lights, big dreams all looking pretty,
No place in the world that can compare,
Put your lighters in the air, everybody say yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah!

In New York,
Concrete jungle where dreams are made of,
There's nothing you can't do,
Now you're in New York,
These streets will make you feel brand new,
Big lights will inspire you,
Let's hear it for New York, New York, New York!

She's the ability to give more power into the song but needs more control over her voice. It sounds like it's all over the place.

Her voice is nasally and strained. Some pitch problems and voice cracks too. If she fixes her soft pallet and breathes from her diaphragm, those issues will be fixed. Nice vibrato though.

For all of you who want to leave nasty comments about Imogen, I suggest that you explore her videos and find out just how much she has evolved as a singer! This video has gotton over six million hits. Her other vids, not many at all! I suggest you watch Imogens rendition of song Withdraw, and her captivating harmonious rhianna cover Stay. And for those of you who like jazz, watch her Devil May Care vid! This girl, in my opinion is one of the best singers out there!!!! And I will definetly continue to watch her evolve!!!!
