Bird is the Word

It’s hard to believe that the singer, Birdy, just turned 16. Her voice has the range, power and maturity of someone much older. Her real name is Jasmine van den Bogaerde, so it’s understandable why she goes by her shorter moniker. She began writing songs at the ripe old age of seven and by the time she was 12 she had her first recording contract.  In 2011,, her first single, Skinny Girl peaked  at number 17 on the U.K. pop charts. And one of her songs was included in the soundtrack to the film, “Hunger Games.”
