Looks and Sounds Like Amanda Lear

Stana of the terrific blog Femulate followed up my post from last Thursday with a post about the worldwide television program "Your Face Sounds Familiar" (I had misidentified the show with the apparent American name, "Sing Your Face Off").

Stana posted this video as her favorite:

I was curious, and found the original Amanda Lear video for "Enigma (Give a Bit of Mmh to Me)", which reveals that the European pop singer has a very husky voice. Many speculate that she was born male. One of her songs is featured in "Dallas Buyer's Club."

P.S. Thanks for the link, Stana.

XiaoCan (小灿)

This isn't XiaoCan's best performance I found on youtube, but it is recent and in HD. Mostly, XiaCan dances, but I've seen snippets of her singing and would like to see more. The video portfolio reflects multiple appearances on Chinese talent shows on television.

Her images on-line are astounding.

This is from a Spanish television series "Tu cara me suena," often known around the world as "Sing Your Face Off." Supposedly, ABC is bring a version to the United States.

In addition to this blog, I started The Cover Gurlz blog in July 2007. Six and a half years later, Rupaul presents an album by that name. The performers are apparently the gurlz on this year's Drag Race. Here's the advertisement for the recording:

One of the performers is the lovely Aussie Courtney Act:

Courtney was first featured on The Cover Gurlz in August 2010, but appeared again in May 2011. And of course, I mentioned Courtney's singing talent here at Gossip Gurl in December 2011 -- and provided a swimsuit photo from Flickr in April 2012.
