Beauté naturelle (in Mixte #62) featuring Tanya Dziahileva

I’m not sure why but when I first listened to Birdy’s songs, I thought of this editorial with Tanya. Anyways, I’m a bit late to the game on this one. Birdy - also known as Jasmine Van den Bogaerde - seems to have burst onto the scene last year and just had a number of American appearances last month including a spot on The Ellen DeGeneres Show but I only recently discovered her through random clicking on YouTube.
Regardless, I’m loving her voice. At the moment, her only album mainly consists of cover songs albeit lovely renditions. I can only find about 3 of her original songs available right now: Without a Word, Just a Game (on The Hunger Games soundtrack) and Be Free. These few songs suggest that she's much more than just a cover artist and fortunately, her next album will primarily be composed of her own songs.
