Item description for Bianca Ryan by Bianca Ryan...
America's got talent, sure, but nobody who tuned in to that Simon Cowell-produced TV show could have guessed it was quite so pure and unblemished. Bianca Ryan, like LeAnn Rimes before her, is an absolute baffler--a voice this big and expressive shouldn't belong to a 12-year-old. As anybody who watched the apple-cheeked starlet make her way across the "Talent" stage knows, though, it does--there's no dismissing this slam-dunk of a debut on studio wizardry (note to skeptics and naysayers: take it somewhere else). Part Celine Dion, part Christina Aguilera, and part untapped country crooner, Bianca inhabits each of these songs with the kind of vocal dexterity pop hopefuls twice her age take pokes at but never quite nail; she's all past-her-years wisewoman on the pretty "I Wish That," a Diane Warren composition, and all skillful but lighthearted chanteuse on "Pray for a Better Day," a David Foster and Kara DioGuardi number. Sad movie lovers and moms will want to scoop her up and hug her for "The Rose," "You Light Up My Life," and "I Believe I Can Fly," but her seventh-grade peers will skip straight to the sugary "Superstar," the Simpson-sisters-esque "Pure and Simple," and "Why Couldn't It Be Christmas Every Day," a joyful carol that, come December, could elevate her to the superstar orbit of her idol, Hilary Duff. --Tammy La Gorce

For a 11 year old that puts her Hart & Sole in to her Music. I hope she comes out with a DVD version of her Music. She brings tears to my eyes every time I hear her sing.

OH MY GOSH! This little gal has a voice that doesn't quit! I first saw her on an email of her appearance on America Has Talent. She brought tears to my eyes. When I saw that she was 11!, I was shocked. And then when I saw that she already has a CD I ordered it immediately! I was NOT disappointed. Her voice gives me goose bumps! I have NEVER heard a voice like hers from someone so young. This girl is on her way to a wonderful career! I will be watching for her next CD! Buy it and be blown away!
MOSTLY NEW SONGS (TO ME) Mar 22, 2007
THE VIDEO I RECEIVED (AND PLAYED) WAS BIANCA AT AN AMERICAN IDOL CONTEST. IT WAS INCREDIBLY GOOD AND PROMPTED ME TO BUY THE CD. HOWEVER, THE CD PALES IN COMPARISON. NEVER HEARD MOST OF THE SONGS SHE SINGS AND NOT ONLY THAT, IT SOUNDS LIKE THE ORCHESTRA IS TOO POWERFUL

This young girl has an incredible voice. She already expresses depth and feeling when she sings. I can only imagine what maturity will bring to her wonderful gift.
Great voice Mar 11, 2007
Such a powerful voice for a young girl. I get chills when I hear her sing And I Told You I'm Not Leaving. Wow! Wish I could sing like that! Great CD.
