Julia Nunes rocks my world.
Ms. Nunes plays a variety of cover songs and original works in YouTube videos. And she is simply delightful. There is something effervescent in the palpable joy that she brings to her music. You can see it in her face and hear it in her voice. It’s a joy that’s infectious. It leaps from her voice and into your heart.
Let me show you the two videos that turned my into a raging fanboy:
Every time I watch the video I’m impressed anew by the fact that, after starting the song with the wrong lyric, she simply starts again. It’s not just about her self-confidence as a performer in that moment — it’s about the entire atmosphere it creates: “Hey, I’m gonna play some music. Wanna listen? I like this song. Let’s have some fun.”
No matter how many times I listen to that song, in that moment I always accept her offer: I start having fun.
Convinced? Good. Come join the rest of us. We’re having a marvelous time.
