Joss Stone

One of my new favorite singers. What can I say? I love the blues, soul and R&B lately.

Besides, this girl's got some serious pipes. What cracks me up is that the best singers are always these little, tiny, kinda stocky, girls with these HUGE voices.

Fun fact of the day: The reason why a lot of "great" singers (we're talking opera singers, Aretha Franklin types, you know, singers with pipes. Not whiny pop singers) are stocky or chubby is because you need
a) a big rib cage for some serious lung capacity
b) really strong stomach muscles and/or belly weight to compress the diaphragm
