12. Outstanding!

I don't know where to begin. My thoughts, in no particular order of importance:

1. Listening to that was a rare moment of bliss for me, due to Kimberly's voice and the song's melody.

2. I can't share it on any social networking sites because I avoid them all like the plague. (DU is as close to social networking as it gets for me.) All I can do to support her is view the video (which I did), email the link to friends (which I will), recommend your post (done), and buy Kimberly's music.

3. I'm confused, practically to the point of irritation, that I can't go to Amazon and buy Kimberly's MP3s or CDs, and I can't find her on CD Baby.

One of my hobbies is finding amateurs on YouTube (most of whom, while talented and promising, possess only a fraction of the talent Kimberly has), then purchasing their recordings on Amazon or CD Baby. I have entire MP3 playlists and CD-R compilations consisting exclusively of relatively unknown artists. It's a great way to find unique music, and the amateur artist gets the message that his or her vision is working its magic. (I mean, I highly doubt that famous, professional artists get excited when an email informs them they sold a song or a CD that day.)

So there's no excuse for this. Kimberly has created what economists call a "pent-up demand" for her product. I'm positive that, like myself, a lot of viewers would have gone directly from this video to a site that sold her music, had one existed.

4. I'm supposed to be somewhere else right now. I'm not "late" - I am, in fact, a no-show. That's how much her performance moved me today. It literally caused me to change my Saturday plans so I could spend the time telling you how much I liked it.

5. Beyond Kimberly's excellent performance, the song itself is a true gem, and would have translated as such even if it had been performed by someone with none of Kimberly's talent.

6. If or when she makes her MP3s or CDs available, I hope you'll post a link (and send it to me through DU Mail, in case I miss the thread).
