Music Monday: "Wings" by Birdy as Featured on Winter's Tale Trailer
Like most of my favorite songs, I first heard "Wings" by Birdy on film. When I saw the theatrical trailer to the new romantic movie Winter's Tale, all I could think was which song is that and who on earth sings it? Upon sifting through her debut album, I realized I'd already heard one of Birdy's songs. Her cover of Bon Iver's "Skinny Love" (featured on her debut album Birdy) is equally beautiful and moving, though I think her original song "Wings" is still my favorite. Check it out below, and to hear more, you can listen to a fabulous Birdy compilation here.
The talented young British singer, song writer, and pianist (real name: Jasmine van den Bogaerde) has a new album out called Fire Within, which debuted in the fall of 2013. Her live appearances and press tour are in full swing, having just performed on the Today show. If you appreciate singers who can actually sing as opposed to performers who show a lot of skin and act like morons, I'm pretty sure you'll absolutely love Birdy!
