From New York subway to Dutch TV

My sister in law Maartje, sent me the above video with a great story. 2 dutch tourist where stuck in
New York because of the volcano eruption in Iceland. In pensylvania station they listened to the above lady.
In the popular Dutch program of Paul de Leeuw , their wish was made come true to bring this lady to Holland and to listen to her again on TV.  I looked at the video and got chicken skin. Beautiful.
Thanks dear Maartje


  1. Wowzer!!! Move over Whitney. Gosh hasn't she got an incredible voice!? It is such a moving song anyway - and then with this voice! I'm in tears.

    Did you know that the song was written by Dolly Parton and it came from the heart because she was going through a break-up at the time with her singing and business partner Porter Wagoner.

  2. I missed this one on dutch television. there are so many undiscoverd talented people like this women who is singing in an underground station but it's always pusible that your talents will be discoverd with some luck.
    great that you share it on your blog.

  3. The problem with such undiscovered talent is that the music business is not really setup to promote such people. They are more interested in how a person looks and what age group the will appeal to, with the technology they have to alter recordings talent is last on teh list.

  4. Thanks stoneweaver I didn't know that Indeed an incredible voice and an incredible song

    Exactly Bert I agree

    Ok BB but I think she looks just fine and I would buy her song and she already reached some fame in Holland So if we all promote her than the music business will have to follow

  5. Hi Marja! It seems talent is just around the corner... but you need to have eyes and hears open to notice... ;)

    Blogtrotter Two is departing Turkey 2009! Enjoy the views and have a great week ahead!!

  6. This is my first visit to your blog. I found the story really interesting. Can you imagine going from subway singing all the way to a TV show in Holland. How wonderful to hear this beautiful voice and I hope she does well on the program.
