New listing on YTA ~ Felicia Lu

Felicia Lu is a singer, songwriter, pianist and dancer from Freilassing in Germany.

Felicia chooses to attend boarding school where she can study dance, songwriting and singing. The first school she attended was too geared towards classical music, so she changed to one that was more pop orientated.

The dance styles that she has learned are ballet, jazz, modern and hip hop. Her piano playing is self taught.

To enable her to be able to reach more of the world with her videos, Felicia has decided to do them in English, rather than her native German, and I'm glad she did because I don't speak any other language, so I wouldn't of been able to include her on here if she had stuck to German. Felicia's English is actually better than a lot of English people's.

I like Cillan's soothing and adaptable vocals a lot and look forward to many more uploads from her as time goes on. I really feel this girl is one to watch as time goes on due to her versatility.
