Connie Talbot - You'll Love Her

Lately, you would have received quite some mails on

Susan Bolye who wow'ed Simon Cowell recently in Britain's Got Talent, the 40 something woman who has never been kissed, and ...

Yoo Ye Eun, the 5 year old pianist genius who was born without eyeballs.

This time round, let's revisit Connie Talbot, who too wow'ed Simon Cowell 2 years ago.

Connie Talbot (born 20 November 2000) is an English child singer from Streetly, Metropolitan Borough of Walsall, West Midlands. She rose to fame in 2007 when she reached the final of the television talent show Britain's Got Talent, where she lost to Paul Potts. Talbot was supposed to sign with Sony BMG but the label pulled out of the deal due to her age.

Talbot signed with Rainbow Recording Company and released her debut album Over the Rainbow in the UK on 26 November 2007. The album was re-released 18 June 2008 with a new track listing, and the first single from the album, "Three Little Birds", was released on 10 June 2008. Songs from the album are to feature in an upcoming video game about Talbot.

Despite its negative critical reception, Over the Rainbow has sold over 250,000 copies worldwide and reached number one in three countries. Since the initial album release, Talbot has performed publicly and on television in Europe, the U.S. and across Asia, where her music had gained recognition through YouTube. Her second album, Connie Talbot's Christmas Album, was released on 24 November 2008. On top of her musical career, Talbot continues to attend primary school and lives in Streetly with her family.
