Bogi, your posts are highly appreciated. Also, count yourself lucky to attend some of Patricia's performances in person. Those of us in the US are denied that privilege.
When I despair, I remember that all through history the ways of truth and love have always won. There have been tyrants, and murderers, and for a time they can seem invincible, but in the end they always fall. Think of it--always. - Mahatma Gandhi
I understand. To see her live adds yet one dimension, when you watch her behaviour, her acting. She is kind, humble and always highly concentrated to her performance. She performs absolutely without stress, very naturally. She has perfect orientation on stage, she reflects the audience - simply she is 100% in the course of the event. She is only 14 and it is amazing to see how she understands many dimensions of her performance. You find nothing cheap or jerky in her acting, she is searching for real value of things.
It was very nice to watch her reaction to great applause after the first song. No big gestures, but we could see, how she reflects it, how it really touches her heart and makes her happy. She returned to stage after maybe 20 minutes but we could see she returned with the same happy feeling.
Her behaviour self is very likeable and when you add the pure color of her voice and gentle lyrical interpretation, it is very unique. I have never seen before such level of natural respect of adult people to a child or young lady here. I'm glad I can see her live at least one or two times within a year.
Patricia'a Pa Pa Pa video was already twice on the web, but currently noone. My video's of the only full time Patricia's concert from July 2011 were deleted in August 2011 from decision of her father. Pa pa pa was among of them. Then, on end of 2011 Patricia's official facebook was established by people, managing Patricia's activities. They inserted many youtube videos into this official facebook including other my videos and including Pa Pa Pa from another uploader. So it is hard to find a logic here. That second Pa Pa Pa video is currently deleted by the uploader. I don't know the uploader and the reason of removal.
I could upload videos, which I have and which are not available for her fans, but I don't wish my youtube channel to be deleted. It has currently 66 subscribers. What to do?
Thanks to Altitudo128 there is a new Christmas video. Patricia sings Silent Night with Slovak opera singer Filip Tuma.
I enjoyed the beginning part, where Patricia sings alone. Patricia's singing sounds light, smooth, contains much of feeling, is not forced in any way, is really enjoyable, likeable. Her voice really suits here, 3 years after Talentmania it still sounds so celestial. She doesn't sound like opera singer for my ears. It is also interesting to watch further coloration of her voice at the age of 15. Her voice is no more so childisch, but still spreads that for her typical quiet and celestial feeling. Nice combination of feeling and technique in the age of 15.
Filip Tuma's singing brings too much pathos and too much vibrato for my ears ... It sounds hard and more forced in comparison with smooth Patricia's singing. It lacks that celestial feeling, brought previously by Patricia, it sounds too 'technically' for my ears. Those two singing styles make too much contrast in one song and don't suit together IMO. The last part, when they are both singing together, lacks synchronization between two singers in more moments. It sounds like when two voices are recorded independently. Some musical theater singer with less pathetic and more natural touch could be better pair with Patricia in this song.
The song comes from a Christmas album, which cannot be bought in a usual CD shop. It can be obtained in Lidl market in Slovakia for free by anyone who spends 20 EUR or more in the market.
