Currently Obsessing on Eliza Doolittle

I’ve always been a fan of those jazzy-bluesy voices ala Amy Winehouse and Adele. So it’s not really surprising that I am now an uber fan of Eliza Doolittle.

Born Eliza Sophie Caird, she adopted Eliza Doolittle (the female lead character in My Fair Lady) as her stage name because it was her childhood nickname. Another fun factoid: She is the daughter of Frances Ruffelle – the woman who originated the role of Eponine in the English version of Les Miserables.

Eliza seems to be a quirky, cheeky young woman but I absolutely love her voice. She released her self-titled debut album last July 2010 in the UK. Do, do check her album out.
