  6. Mike says:

    Hm … not that enthusiastic about it yet but must listen to the whole thing. I’m curious about if she also has updated the lyrics for including something about social networks like Facebook.

    Hello everyone !

    I’m very excited (like a lot of you I think) since I heard about new material from Kate, few weeks ago. Though I’m agree with Mike, and I’m not enthousiast about this short extract (which maybe seem a bit too close from the original orchestration), I don’t want to make a judgement now. I’m too impatient :p. I can’t wait to be on the 5th of april ! Happy to hear and to see Kate again (she looks great !)

    Thanks a lot to this excellent site who share all this informations with us.

    Kisses from France ;-)
