First few rings of the song are a tug at your heart strings. Birdy’s cover of People Help the People is a perfect reminder of how touching music can be when struck with the right notes.
The video also feels like a lesson in photography with all the magnificent shots displaying heartfelt emotions and human interaction. With cinematography fitting for the title, it surely gets you feeling mixed emotions with all the ups and lows of the lyrics as well as the beautiful melodies recreated by the talented songstress.
Though only 17 years of age, Birdy has astounded many listeners with her heartfelt covers and obvious talent in musical performance. Her live recordings are one to look out for, especially that one video of Skinny Love taken within just one continuous shoot. There’s just that raw passion that you feel in her songs, just goes to show that she sings and makes music not just by ear but with heart.
Fortunately for her fans, she just released a new album that features her original penned compositions. It’s a wonder how she crammed all of those recordings and tours while she finished her final exams in school.
