Yes! Just what we like to hear!
A wildly successful soundtrack album for a wildly successful movie!
The Hunger Games Soundtrack: Songs from District 12 and Beyond, which was produced by Universal Republic's T Bone Burnett, is expected to debut at #1 on the HITS album chart next Tuesday, with 150-175,000 estimated in sales!
And given the tracks that we've heard from it - which include
Shivers. Absolutely spine-tingling.
Yesterday, we posted a vid of Birdy singing/playing a cover of Skinny Love on Ellen, and we thought THAT was the absolute shiz.
But she surpassed herself when she sang her version of People Help The People.
This girl is 15 YEARS OLD and her voice is effing RIDICULOUS.
Plus this is live.
Plus she plays the piano like an elegant BOSS.
We can't even try do this performance justice by explaining it so just click and watch (above)!!
What do U think of Birdy??
This is BEAUTIFUL!! Haunting! So mature!!
Check out this amazing performance from Birdy when she was on Ellen!

Click plaaaaaAAAAAayyyy already!
We don't mind! Ha!
YouTube is such an incredible launching platform!
Yet ANOTHER new song from the already-incredible soundtrack to The Hunger Games: Songs From District 12 and Beyond!
Check out the hauntingly beautiful Just A Game, from the immensely talented 15-year-old Birdy…AFTER THE JUMP!
In many ways, Birdy is a lot like Susan Boyle.
Both are British female vocalists who began their careers in talent shows and went on to do mostly cover songs. And we don't usually love artists that mainly do cover songs, but something about these two is quite compelling.
We've posted about Birdy before and we love her. We just got her new album and it is more of the same, which is more songs featuring her haunting voice against stark arrangements - like in People Help The People, a song originally by Cherry Ghost.
We do look forward to hearing original songs from her. But she's only 15! That will come with age!
Check out People Help The People (above). Then CLICK HERE to listen to more music from Birdy!
Stunning. Ravishing. Exquisite. Compelling.
Birdy is all that and MORE!
SUCH a talented teenager!
One of our favorite new artists of 2011 - by far!
Check out Birdy's MUST-LISTEN cover of Ed Sheeran's The A Team (above).
We're not familiar with the original song, but we can't get enough of her version - or her!!!!!
What splendid timing!!!
Our latest musical obsession, 15 year old British pianist/singer Birdy, has JUST released an official music video for her reworking of The XX's Shelter.
Check it out (above)!!!!
