Today I went to Bryant Park to see Thalia perform on Good morning America. First I feel the need to let everyone know that I happen to like her (sometimes, though) I own several of her CDs, and unfortunately that’s they only place where she actually sounds decent, in her CDs. I caught 4 of her performances today and I feel sad to say that I was very disappointed at them, her voice was not great, now I understand why she has never done big tours, and that’s because she can’t hold a concert for 2 hours. Her voice got lost in the music, which by the way was a recording, she was singing over it, didn’t have background singers and most of the instruments were not live.
When she performed with Fat Joe, it was nice due to the fact that he worked the crowd and most people there only knew who he was, not her. People were actually asking who she was. She runs out of breath a lot so it makes her singing ability short. She also needs to gain at least 10 pounds, she looks anorexic!
Bottom line, I don’t foresee Thalia doing as good as Shakira did, she didn’t sound or look original and the American audience is a hard one to please, you need to offer something good and original to be a hit. Sad but true, she does look and sound like Jennifer Lopez.
Any thoughts, opinions, will be appreciate it.
