J and I were having a discussion about the talents – or lack thereof – of many of the young “singers” today. I brought up Demi Lovato as being one I actually like, and who actually DOES have talent. He’s not familiar with her. SO. This one is for you J. And anyone else who is not familiar with Demi.
This is a live performance of the song Skyscraper:
And to compare, this is the official video for that song, which translates to “studio version” of the song (aka not live):
Granted her genre is not my preference, but that is irrelevant when considering her talent. Her market is “pop” – which is not what I’m into. But I don’t mind her music one bit. The same cannot be said for others in the same market, who will remain nameless as far as this post is concerned. My whole point is that Demi, unlike many of her “peers”, has true talent. Even if the genre is not what you care for I think you’d have to at least agree on the talent aspect.
