SOME THOUGHTS AND FEELINGS
ON ALEJANDRA BURGOS
Whenever I listen to Alejandra Burgos and see her on any stage I am deeply moved by her "unique" voice, her talent, her energy and her passion for music, which she transmits in each of her songs.
She sings straight from her heart and gives the audience not only her voice but ALL OF HERSELF. She really feels what she sings and you can percieve that. This is one of her many merits.
She is so creative that even when she isn't singing her own songs, you may think they are hers because she gives each song a part of herself and sings it her own way.
One essential thing about great, creative and original talent is that it can't be copied, and I think that is what she has. That's why you can't either sing like Alejandra Burgos or compare her.
