Upon the first glance, it could be easy to dismiss Lila McCann's debut album, Lila, as a byproduct of LeAnn Rimes' astounding success -- after all, there couldn't be two talented teenage female vocalists arriving within a year of each other. However, upon further investigation, McCann reveals herself as a promising singer in her own right -- arguably one with more potential than Rimes. McCann has a pure, pretty voice that can simply soar, as the hit single "Down Came a Blackbird" proves. At this stage, she hasn't reached artistic maturity, and she frequently has trouble delivering songs with subtlety, yet there's a passion to her singing that makes this point a minor one. Musically, Lila may stray a little too close to adult contemporary for some tastes (a Sheena Easton cover -- "Almost Over You" -- wasn't a great choice), but there's enough spirit and conviction in McCann's performances to make her rank as a contender.

Ray Charles, a Stylist Under the Influence

A founding father of soul, whose career spanned half a century, Ray Charles cannot be reduced to a handful of famous hits. He is above all the master of the high-end musical crossover that makes an art of mixing genres, approaching one to better embrace the other. Ray Charles secularised gospel, enriched the blues, played jazz, sang country and approached rock'n'roll. Let's take a look back at his unique style based on the five listed here.

Outlaw Country: Nashville Uprising

In the early 1970’s, a group of musicians from Nashville radically challenged the city’s musical tradition, its codes, its smooth productions and its clichés. With Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson and a few other long-haired rebels who were deeply influenced by rock and roll, this new trend defied country music’s conservatism.
