If you heard New Zealander Rebecca Nelson on the radio, you could be forgiven for believing her to be Katherine Jenkins.  Nelson possesses the similar warmth and rich texture that made Jenkins so famous though their repertoire is a good distance apart.  Nelson's debut studio album Pure Imagination mostly pays homage to musical theatre and some well known standards.  Nelson started her career by taking to the streets of Dublin during her stay in Ireland and ended up supporting The Priests during their tour.  Back home, Nelson is still trying to catch the attention of major record companies; her most recent attempt has her auditioning for New Zealand's Got Talent where the public can vote her in as the wild card; the exact situation that catapulted Jackie Evancho to superstardom.

I wish Rebecca success getting back on New Zealand's Got Talent. It would definitely allow more people to hear her sing. It's nice to have another mezzo soprano among the ladies!
