Jackie Evancho – What a voice!

XXSome time ago I read an article about the Italian Castrati, those boys who were neutered in the interest of providing a unique ability to sing in the high registers
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Castrato ). Then, on “America’s Got Talent” came Jackie Evancho, a diminutive, angelic 10-year old with a voice with such range and power it’s hard to realize this voice comes from those diminutive lungs. http://tinyurl.com/34ruqr5

About carlos

I'm a curious person, of reasonable intellect, "on the beach" (retired) and enjoying my interest in anthropology, language, civil rights, and a few other areas. I've been a hippie/student/aerospace tech writer in the '60s, a witness to the Portuguese revolution in the ‘70s, a defense test engineer and witness to the Guatemalan genocide in the '80s, and a network engineer for an ISP in the '90s. Now I’m a student and commentator until my time is up. I've spent time under the spell of the Mesoamerican pyramids and the sweet sound of the Portuguese language. I've lived in Europe, traveled in Brazil, Central America, Iceland, New Zealand, and other places. My preferred mode of travel is with a backpack and I eat (almost) anything local. Somehow, many of the countries I have been to have had civil unrest (for which I was not responsible). I'm open to correspond with anyone who might share my liberal, humanist interests. I live in San Buenaventura, California.
