Let The Truth Be Told
Label: Atlantic Records
Listen to this Nigerian-Irish chanteuse's scratched-up, old-soul-record-biting debut single, "From My Heart to Yours," and you might think she's just another girl who grew up on The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, trying to recapture its magic. But Ms. Izibor is no one-trick pony. She covers the full soul spectrum -- from big-voiced and church-ready to AM gold and the three Ds (dramatic, danceable, and diva-fied) -- and she has got the bold, full-throated chops to pull it all off.
