I was so sad to learn of the death of Vera Lynn, a wonderful, woman and singer.

Today’s female singers should take note that she never showed her feeding apparatus, or ever relied on miming to further her career.

The stupid names these rappers choose, 50 Cent, Future, 2 Chainz, Fetty Wap, Q Tip, what’s that all about?

Dame Vera, Sir Tom Jones, David Alexander etc only relied on their voices to get where they wanted to be.

I do admit there’s quite a few modern singers female and male are very good gifted singers, but please keep your clothes on, for God’s sake.
