She has a pretty voice and feeds ostriches.
The thing with “internet sensations” is that they can be either really, really awesome and have the potential to make the world of music a bit more interesting; or they can be Rebecca Black.
Thankfully the singer / songwriter we’re about to introduce you to falls into the first category. Her name is Gabrielle Aplin, she’s 19 and we want to listen to her all day.
And look at her face.
Gabrielle’s YouTube channel has already notched up a massive 10 million views (AGH) and she describes her music as "ghosty pop/folk with hints of choirs and twinkly things.” This we have to hear.
Check out Home.
Now that was more loveliness than we can shake a twinkly thing at.
There’s more music to come from her in September but until then, let’s look at her feeding an ostrich.
We love her. What do you think?
