Bria Valante is Prince’s new protegeApril 29th, 2009 - 11:34 pm ICT by GD
The Tavis Smiley show featured the musical icon, Prince on the 27th of April. It was in this show that Prince introduced his latest protégé Bria Valante. Along with this Prince also disclosed some never before released information about his life and his childhood.
This appearance in a chat show was expected considering the fact that Prince has just self-released three albums at Target. The first two of the three albums, ‘LotusFlow3r’ and ‘MPLSound,’ are by Prince himself and the other album is ‘Elixer’ which is by Bria Valante. The albums are available for a reasonable amount of $11.98 at Target and at Prince’s official website since Sunday.
The audience can have their pick from the albums based on the type of music they prefer. ‘LotusFlow3r’ depicts Prince’s guitar antics and if you are like them then you are sure to get bowled over by this album. ‘MPLSound’ contains nasty antique music. What comes as a surprise is the package performed by Bria Valante. Valante’s album, ‘Elixer’ is soothing to the ears as she matches her lovely voice with clean line. Her range is awesome as she effortlessly moves from tales of crushes to velvet funk. However, after a point of time listeners will feel that ‘Elixer’ does not feel very fresh. There are times when you will almost feel that Valante is acting as Prince’s mouthpiece.
Few will know of the fact that Valante had even featured in the Golden Globe winning track, “Song of the Heart” with Prince for the movie called ‘Happy Feet’.
