I don't know . . .
. . . if talent is made or born.
However, there are two young singers who make a case for the former. Mrs. B and I watched a repeat of "Hit Man: David Foster and Friends" over the holidays. Foster has produced an amazing number of hits, and he had a star-studded guest list for this special.
One of the guests was a young lady named Charise Pempengco from the Philippines who was discovered on You Tube. She's now sixteen, and you WILL NOT believe her voice.
While searching for other videos of Charise on YouTube, I came across Bianca Ryan. Bianca is now fourteen, and came to fame when she won America's Got Talent a month before her TWELVTH birthday.
If these young women don't give you chills, you have a tin ear.
