Default Words of power from susana silva a London busker

Walking down Southbank in london without any expectations , any commitments and suddenly this voice appear and attract me like a magnet..
I stopped for about 3 hours just to listen to this girl sitting on the amp and sing so powerful so soulful so joyful and touchy...
Something absolutely unexpected to see on the street..
I was full of emotions , full of tears , full of joy and loads of different journeys during her 3 hour set.
She was only singing covers and on of her original called ''B U''
I was fulfilled on that day.
Following her career since April 2014 she has been totally dedicated to music and always full of emotions whilst performing..
Short line about her , she ends up homeless one day and was able to stand on the feet through busking..
Recently she released her debut album called ''Words of Power''.
The album contain 11 tracks (2 portugese , 1 spanish , 7 english)
She put her life on to this album in the way that from track one to eleven is a story on what she's been through... her life phases...
I love music and especially as the music industry works this days when just an image matters hearing a street busker creating an album like that..
I was really missing a good music that will touch my heart and open my eyes in some ways...
I think she wrote the lyrics for 10 tracks in this album and also composed most of the tracks...
I simply needed to feel touched by music again and this album was one of them.
I wont speak about the each tracks here .. its worth to check it out at least and feel free to share your honest opinion .

She certainly has a powerful voice. Nice to see someone coming up the hard way and finding the fame they deserve.

Default She is still a busker

i wouldn't say she is famous and btw that video of nina simone cover went viral but the description of that men is not true. she isn't an ex busker . she is busking in southbank pretty much every weekend so if you have a chance and in london check her updates and might be able to listen to her live. right now she is promoting her album so she is playing her original tracks on the streets...
