In my opinion she is one of the most talented opera singers of this world! She has a great voice and she had already had very important appearances (for example in the Metropolitan Opera in New York) although she was only a teenager. She is waiting with her real great career until her voice has become more secure. I'm sure she will become one of the best opera singers!
Since her first appearences on tv (when she was only 14) she blossomed from year to year. Today, with 19, she has already a full figure. The "big" pictures below are from September 1997, the "thin" one is from spring of the same year.
