This has been obviously released to cash in on her new found Strictly fame to appeal to that audience too. She should have performed this on the final it would been epic.

Here is a clip of her new single a cover of 'One Day I'll Fly''
LISTEN HERE http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_zcCv5exQyE

I think it suits her to a T, and she sounds amazing on it.

Feburary 4th, 2013 is when her debut album is out. The album has some original songs and some well known covers.

Will you be buying it? Her new music video is out this week so we should see it soon and the single is out to buy now too, but dont buy it until release date please....

P.S I'm not a PR person or anything, i just am a mega GA fan! I'll be buying the album for sure.

Kimberley is a lovely girl but no I will not be buying or downloading her album or single. She was good on Strictly but why would I buy her recordings just because she was on the show? I didn't buy anything from Harry Judd, Alesha, Jason Donovan, Rachel Stevens just off the back of them appearing in Strictly!

Kimberley has got an ok pop voice but it's not powerful or distinctive in anyway - by the way here is a far more superior version of

'One day I'll fly away' by Randy Crawford

Randy has a far better voice with emotion and depth - so if I wanted to buy that song it's Randy's version I'd download

I will certainly buy this latest 33⅓ if it comes with free Kimberley in every sleeve.

No - I'd rather watch her dance.

I was about to post pretty much the same thing having heard Randy Crawford's version just now.

Never heard of Girls Aloud or Kimberley before SCD but grew to like her a lot on SCD. But her voice seems quite feeble in comparison with Randy Crawford - a pity as she seems quite a nice person. Surely the studio could have enhanced it?

Having heard her husky speaking voice I imagined I would like her singing and she could perhaps have sung like this

Pink Martini (with guest singer Storm Large) - Amado Mio
http://youtu.be/BpHDWZAwXW4

I am afraid that it doesn't look like she can cut it. I'm very disappointed.

Oh nice period album cover. But it should have shown her bum. I might have bought it then.

If you like anything on YouTube, you can download it as an mp3.

I agree Randy Crawford's is the original outstanding version of this beautiful song. I don't think it was a wise move by Kimberely or her record company to cover this song for her debut single, although I wish Kimberely all the best with it.

I think Kimberly Walsh's point of reference is Nicole Kidman from Moulin Rouge and not Randy Crawford for this version.

It seems a bit strange rhythmically. I'm not keen.

Could be. But Nicole Kidman is an accomplished actress rather than a singer. Her version (just heard) is not much more than a poetry recital. Nicole does not have much of a trained singer's range either.

But Kimberley is meant to be a singer. Sad.

Never heard of Storm Large or Pink Martini. But thanks to Henry for bringing them to our attention. What a singer, what a woman ..here's someone who really knows how to project a song. She makes all our 'girl-band' singers look and sound pathetic.
And the Pink Martini Band is terrific; real musicians - especially the quirky piano player.
Storm Large has a cult following in America - she's even booked to appear at Carnegie Hall!

Sorry, Kimberley doesn't get a look in !

During SCD I tweeted to Kimberley that she should try Amado Mio thinking that the look suited her. But it seems that the poor girl just hasn't the voice for it.

The above is with the usual singer China Forbes who was ill and Storm Large stood in.

I like China a lot but Storm is just so full of life

Here's another one with Storm Large

Pheww!! - this chic can certainly put over a song. And what a great latin band - it should be compulsory viewing for the producers of Strictly Come Dancing so that they would know what latin music should sound like.

Eat you heart out Posh Spice and all the other girl-band 'singers'. Talk about earning money under false pretences!

No I wouldnt buy Kimberley's album - but then I havent bought an album by ANYONE for donkeys years - and the last single I bought was the Chicken Song (for a joke Xmas present for a Spitting Image fan!) so that would have been sometime in thee 80s......

Nope - (among other reasons) having been lucky enough to hear Lea Salonga singing "I Still Believe" live in Miss Saigon, I don't think Kimble can come close.

The intro to "One Day I'll Fly Away" made me think it was going to be "The Lion Sleeps Tonight". Randy Crawford has nothing to worry about.

Just listened to "Another Suitcase" and ... nope. Breathy, over-use of a rather weak vibrato.

I think it's not really wise for a mediocre manufactured pop singer to take on songs like this because she doesn't really have a chance of comparing that well with the stronger, more characterful singers who've taken on those roles live.

No - she can't compete with Adele or Leona Lewis both of whom have great voices.

Lovely girl but thinks she should stick to Girls Aloud.

Much more than "Latin". Here are

Pink Martini (with guest singer Storm Large) - Splendor in the Grass
http://youtu.be/6L-_DiZlrUI

Pink Martini - What'll I Do (with singer China Forbes & Special Guest Norman Leyden)
http://youtu.be/7E-JpPR7Gu8

Pink Martini - Hey Eugene | Live on Later with Jools Holland
http://youtu.be/SjwTMjL6qWs

Pink Martini - Dosvedanya Mio Bombino | Live on The Paul O'Grady Show
http://youtu.be/TGYbq8JQ1hQ

As you can imagine they have been my favourite band for some years and I have seen them in London several times.

Could she be any more posey in that picture? Nice enough girl, but overrated as a dancer on Strictly and she has a mediocre voice.

I understand Kimberley loves the showtunes, but I think it would have benefited her more to start solo with some standard songs. She could have gotten away with doing some jazz tunes. I think she could have done songs like this:

Temptation-(Diana Krall version-written by Tom Waits)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UO42FVPxtwo

So many songs she could have sung with the right arrangement for her voice.

So Nice-(Bebel Gilberto version or Diana kralls)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dpcg5Pg4zHY

Is you is or is you ain't my baby (Dinah Washington version)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iItm3f6MGEY

My Funny Valentine (Sting or Chaka Khan)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XP-oGwt8ng0

What Hurts the Most (Rascal Flatts)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7qH4qyi1-Ys

You Belong to Me (Carly Simon-Original Version)

Storm "Large?" Yep, she needs a less clingy dress or "Spanx"

A lot of "go" but pitch control was really weak.

Lot's of singers out there who can sing, but don't get the exposure. No pun intended.

This one can sing anything.

No I certainly won't be buying Kimberley's album, any more than I would buy any of the GA albums.
