Rebekah Del Rio: Nobody's Angel / Llorando @ WEA!

Rebekah Del Rio brings the room to a standstill with her breathtaking singing at the 25th Anniversary WEA Convention. Performing "Nobody's Angel" with the legendary singer/songwriter Randy Sharp on guitar, she followed that with "Llorando", a spellbinding Spanish a cappella version of Roy Orbison's song "Crying". This performance was before Ms. Del Rio's epic performance of the song in David Lynch's film "Mulholland Drive" and was during the country phase of her deeply moving and storied career. The introduction to Ms. Del Rio's set gives fascinating insight into how she got her short lived country record deal with Giant Records in Nashville and the underrated genius of this most phenomenal woman. Due to a tragic car accident where she was rear ended by an elderly gentleman while waiting at an intersection, her career was temporarily sidelined as she underwent rehabilitation, causing her soon to be opening spot on a tour to be cancelled. To add to the tragedy, her country label Giant changed leadership, causing her $500,000 finished record (which included Nobody's Angel) to get permanently shelved where it is collecting dust somewhere in a Nashville vault. However, with the magic of YouTube, her brilliant performance and voice from her time in Nashville can shine for the world to see! On an end note, Ms. Del Rio has since fully recovered and has focused her incredible talents to other genres of music such as Latin Jazz and World.
