What's the story?

BIANCA RYAN is the self-titled debut album of the winner of NBC's hit series America's Got Talent. Ryan's powerful delivery will remind fans of young Tanya Tucker or LeAnn Rimes mixed with a little pop princess, and her endearing cutie-pie looks complete the appealing package. Unfortunately, the CD's producers have saddled Ryan with a few too many old chestnuts, boasting musical arrangements that sound like toothpaste commercials. For example, "The Rose," and "You Light Up My Life" -- even if beautifully sung -- never needed revival, especially by producers lacking any sense of excitement or originality.

Is it any good?


Ryan is only 12, but she has the pipes, vocal range, and style of a seasoned vocalist twice her age. The most successful tune ends up being the original, sweet "Why Couldn't It Be Christmas Every Day," in which Ryan is allowed to sound like exactly who she is -- a very talented, extremely confident kid. It'll be interesting to see how this young woman's career develops, and whether future efforts will allow her to take advantage of imagination and freshness as well as her strong talent.

Families can talk about...

  • Families can talk about what it might be like for a kid who has the voice of someone older. What challenges might arise? How do you think Bianca will sound when she actually is a grown-up? Families can also talk about how Bianca fuses different musical genres together: Where do you hear the country influence? The pop? The R&B?

Ver talented music

Bianca Ryan was 12 when she recored this, and that's really hard to believe when you hear how great of a singer she is. Her voice is amazingly strong and powerful, especially for someone her age. There's nothing inappropriate as far as I remember, and the songs contain positive messages about family and life in genera.
