A couple of weeks ago Amira and I went to Borders bookstore as one of my dear friend's, Taliya, was performing there. She's a singer/songwriter and was promoting her latest album. She has an absolutely incredible voice and is extremely talented. One of her many talents includes performing one of the songs she wrote in 15 different languages. She has been been awarded the Guinness World Record for recording her single "Flower Child" in the ‘Most Languages on an Album by an Original Artist’. At the concert she performed "Flower Child" using all 15 different languages at one time in a medley format with snipets of each languages. Admittedly this probably impressed me more than singing the song 15 times in 15 different languages, for how on earth must someone's brain be processing singing one song using all 15 different languages at once......impressive is all I have to say.

That's so cool ! She is talented alright , I have problems with plain ole English .LOL!

I am really interested in what Amira thought about all those languages in one song . What did she say about it if anything ? Did she notice ?

Salam On the Edge,
Amira just loves Taliya's music. When she first say Taliya's picture (before she met her in person) she took at double take at her picture---looked puzzled---then turned to me and said, "Mommy she looks like me".

Although Taliya sang her song in Arabic (one of the 15), Amira assumes everything she hears including English that she doesn't understand is Spanish. LOL
