I don't know if any of you have heard of this blind Aboriginal singer but his voice is hauntingly beautiful and has won the praise of many famous people like Elton John, Sting and Quncy Jones et al and even the Queen of England...

Please listen and enjoy even if you don't know the meaning of the song as so many others have done so....

Never heard of him before, thanks for making him known to us.

I wouldn't call his voice "hauntingly beautiful", but I'd certainly call it sweet. Surprisingly light, I was expecting more of a baritone. But a sweetly beautiful voice, yes. Very Happy

Well I suppose I really meant the song he sang was hauntingly beautiful and he sings a few others like it in the Aboriginal language... I guess no mans voice can be really hauntingly beautiful as we seem to associate that expression with a few women singers more.... super grin
