The precocious 11 year old New Orleans singer/actress Alana Cruz-Ehrlich defies belief on her brand new cover track ‘Underneath the Tree’ which is an effort Kelly Clarkson would be proud of.
A member of Acapop! KIDS, this young lady has been singing most of her life and practicing hard via Zoom during the worldwide lock down with her vocal coach. With big plans on the horizon and original music scheduled for 2021, this young talent has the lungs of a seasoned professional.
Her voice is honey coasted with such goodness and the way she holds her tone is absolutely tremendous. The way she reaches those high notes is mind blowing. Singing seems so effortless for this incredible young singer who in a few years will surely be one of the biggest names in the music world. She has that extra bit of quality that makes her stand out from the rest. It helps that her family are all musically inclined too.
‘Underneath the Tree’ by US singer Alana Cruz-Ehrlich is a reminder that Christmas is coming and that we can heal through amazing musicians who have been forced away from music venues and playing live. The extra time to build up their name through recordings and extra training, seems to of benefited this wildly talented and soulful singer. This splendid makes those bells ring a little bit louder and helps us to heal up, after a torrid year.
