My mom (great lover of good music and general all round festino) sent me a link to this video a couple of weeks ago and I’ve been playing it a lot. There is something about Charlie June’s voice that sneaks under your skin – I can’t quite place what it is, but I like it. Also, she is really cute, reminding me a little of Marie from Roxette with a pinch of Claire Johnson from Mango Grove (LOVE her hair). But she is also completely her own, which she proves by tackling Nicki Minaj’s Starships as her first cover. Not an easy feat, but she nails it in a way which is all her own – and I think I actually prefer her version. Twenty-two, from Johannesburg and currently residing in Cape Town, Charlie is fresher than a pair of newly laundered pink socks. Give her a listen, subscribe to her YouTube channel and show her some love, because I want to hear more from this lady. And so will you.
