Mary Poppins and Cold Play *snort* Nice description! She has a lovely voice!

Such a lovely voice. Thanks for sharing, Grandpa. Yuna has a great future.

I don't know about Mary Poppins, but her music begins with a country western sound and moves into a kind of an old Joan Baez quality. I like her voice. It suggests a sweet, tenderness. Thank you for sharing.

Yes Auckland is in the North Island, you should be safe hehe Though you better watch out for all those Aucklanders!! Wimpy lot they are, always whining. Not tough like us southerners. :)

Hart, Joylene, good to see you! Yuna is the latest singing sensation here, though her singing style is not liked by everyone;

Manzanita, you are welcome. Thanks for stopping by;

Niki, when she was doing the video I mentioned Adele was singing "Chasing The Pavement" or something like that.
I know very little about New Zealanders, so a lot to learn :)

Denise, even locally not many have heard her .You are welcome.
