I just discovered a new girl singer. 11 year old Nora Foss al Jabri from Norway. See My Favorites second page.
http://www.youtube.com/user/girlsingerfan
A very pretty blonde girl with an amazing range and who picks some great songs to sing. Bluesy kind of voice at times. Like a preteen Joss Stone only I think she may be even better soon. Please let me know if you find any other videos of her besides what is on youtube right now.

Here are three to try and see if you like her.

She sings Jeff Buckley's Hallelujah. This was the song from his CD Grace which got the most airplay. Jeff wrote many of his own songs, but this one is a Leonard Cohen song. Jeff was a U.S. singer, son of Folk singer Tim Buckley. Both father and son died before 30. Jeff in an accidental drowning. How is it that a little girl from Norway knows and does this song so well?

Nora Foss al Jabri Hallelujah


Here she does the classic Summertime. One of my all time favorites. Bluesy voice on this one.

I saw she released a maxi single with 4 tracks, but I think it's impossible to find it...

The name is "Hallelujah" and the track list is :
01. Hallelujah
02. Somewhere over the rainbow
03. Stop!
04. Kjærlighet (Love) (Norwegian Bonus Track - Live)

Nora with full orchestra doing Stop. This might be my favorite video so far from her. I don't know about this song. Anyone have any info on this, like who originally did it? The orchestra backup is so nice, the song perfect for her. Spine-tingling for me.

I have received permission from Nora's family and management to post this link for some good quality mp3 downloads of the few recordings she has done so far. Here it is.

http://www.kristian.toppveien.com/upload/index.html
Right click and Save As.

I also was given news that at about this time, Nora is appearing on Norway's version of America's Got Talent and Britain's Got Talent. They will be posting a video and news on youtube of how Nora does on that soon. They also plan on creating a website soon that will also be for selling the recordings she will be doing in the near future, but they have not decided with whom and where they will record yet. They are in the process of making those decisions. I will update this thread when there are new videos and news on recordings.

I found her too some time ago, from girlsinger's favorites. She's an absolutely amazing singer. Good voice and not a bad technique, and very well in tune. That means she's almost perfect. Shocked She certainly has a bright future as a singer if she wants to go on on a public career.

So she has a manager? Does that mean she has a CD coming out soon? What a Face

Nora was on Norske Talenter (I think it's Nouvelle star or something in French) yesterday:

One more great performance, I liked especially the end!

Cool Video, thanks !

"Norske Talenter" is not "Nouvelle Star" (which is "Pop Idol" or "American Idol") but "Incroyable Talent". But it's not important. Cool

I have correspondence with Nora and Company, as I call them and her big sister. They told me this show was Norway's version of America's Got Talent and Britain's Got Talent. The format is the same. After seeing the video you posted above, I liked the performance, but the sound is not synced with the video very good. I got a message from Nora's sister that there was another version. I looked and found this one called 'song extended'. It is not quite perfect, but better synced version, but minus the intro and the judges comments. For the song, this is definately better, but look at the other one for the talking parts.

Nora is still only 12 years old, and it's important that she can be that age, and do other things as well. She did have some offers on making an album, but she knows what she wants. And it is not to do an kids album. And it's important that she's not beeing taking advantage of.
She goes to school, has guitar lessons, singing lessons, plays football, and attends a musical choir. She also likes to hang out with her friends. She is just a ordinary girl with a big talent, and she keeps her feet steady on the ground. And she never looks at anything written about her, on youtube or anywhere else Wink

Oh, do you know her ? I suppose yes...

Yes, and she doesn't have a voice to do a kid album. She has a mature style. I hope she will do a beautiful album, if she make it. Smile

Awww! I really hoped that she would make an album. She doesn't have to make a kids' album, it could be a more general audience album - although there are not many songs that are not too mature for her. Anyway, it would be a horrible waste of talent if she didn't record any songs.. Sad

She will record an album as soon as the right offer shows up. But she is young, and has plenty of time. And yes, in spite of her young age she can sing anything. Really, you have'nt heard anything yet Laughing

Sounds promising! I hope she manages to make an ambitious album eventually. And that she gets a good deal and doesn't get taken advantage of. And avoids the getting-too-much-too-soon symptom of many child starts and getting snotty. But I'm sure she will keep her feet on the ground.

PostSubject: Re: Nora Foss al Jabri from Norway   Wed 2 Apr - 4:13

I am so glad to see all these comments here on this thread. That means I started one that has some good interest. Nora deserves it, she is so pretty and talented. I have contact with whoever refers to themself(ves) as Nora and Company and also her big sister. They are quite friendly and informative for me and I can tell by what they say, she is in good hands. You are correct; they are not pushing her, but letting her choose what she wants to do and how fast she wants to go. I wish all families with talented children would be the same. Even though it would be so nice to have a full cd of professional recordings by her while she is a preteen, I guess we can be happy with what she chooses to do now and share with us and wish her not fame, but more so a happy childhood. She has smarts and a good family, so she will be OK. I love her high notes and when she sings more bluesy, such as Summertime. I have complimented them in messages a few times for the great song choices they make for Nora. Keep it going everyone.

You're quite right! She's in good hands and well taken care of.
The music business is a routhless business which takes advantage of everyone. Considering her age and her future, it's important to keep her away from the sharks.

Look out for her in the semi final 18.04. Check out tv2.no after the show and you will be updated. If she doesen't goes
through, we are very well pleased with what she has already achieved Very Happy

Here is Nora's latest performance on the Norske Talenter show. She did great I think, but I cannot tell what the judges are saying. I will give news on the results when I know or maybe embliss07 can tell us. This time she sang in Norweigan.
