...but went nowhere. I'll go first - 1) Whoever that kid was that sang in my kid's elementary school's production of Annie. She had a phenomenal voice, not just for a kid, and I was certain I'd see her on America's Got Talent or The Voice in a few years. 2) Alice Merton when "No Roots" hit the scene. I guess she's still active but never achieved much fame after "No Roots". 3) Medina - Danish singer that still does well in the EU market, but maybe too much like Lady GaGa to break into the US market. 4) A local guy Wes McDonough who moved to Nashville and I was certain that I was going to see him on tour. He's also a financial advisor or something, so it's tough to take a risk and the big dip in pay to maybe get a chance at something. Maybe if he hit Nashville when he was 21. Talent alone isn't enough, you need timing as well. Anyways, I don't know about his situation, just that he has a great voice.
