Anna, you will have to take a vacation in Portugal to really enjoy the city of Lisbon and the Fado.

She came into town and my parent went to see her I wish I had too. David Letterman is funny in that tape because he is kind of goofy at the beginning. But then she sings and you can tell he is blown away by her voice. I think a lot of the 'singers' he gets aren't used to performing live. They had backing tracks they sing too and it's now the same. A fado singer does live performance is small venues. So they have to be able to perform live without backing track sometimes without anything but there voices. It's amazing to see in person.
