She sounds amazing in that, but whoever decided that she should now be called Martha should be fired.

Her real name suits her so much better! I really want a jazz and soul album from her

Stupid decision to change her name, I don't get what they think that is going to do.

I watched some other videos on her "Martha" channel. There's one where she explains the name change, and it seems like she's going through a personality disorder or something. It shows clips from her time on The X Factor etc, then she goes into this speech about how "Martha is the girl I've always wanted to be"...it's quite sad.

Either way she has a decent voice and I liked Cathedral, but it's a shame she feels that changing who she is will make her more successful in the industry. I liked her when she was just Laura White, she seems a bit lost.

Hardly anybody remembers her real name anyway, so why bother changing it??

It doesn't sound like a personality disorder at all.

She succinctly explains it as the name being a pseudonym and reflecting her "old soul" and influences such as Ella Fitzgerald and Aretha Franklin.

Five years later and she's still saying her material is coming soon. Nobody cares anymore, 'Martha'.

It's not difficult to grasp is it? And I actually like it - it seems to fit her persona somehow, kind of old fashioned and quirky.

This is also a good point. I love Martha/Laura but am getting more than tired of waiting for her new material. She's posted on Facebook that she's got a publishing deal and has been offered a record deal.I really hope that means she'll release something soon. In the meantime though she's posting a new youtube video every week under the title Martha Fridays and this week's is epic.

The August Bank Holiday 1987, Monday 31st August, will have been a Martha Monday. It was the day Laura White was born!

Perhaps it emerged that there was another singer named Laura White and she didn't want a fancy stage name, so chose an old-fashioned, uninteresting alias so that it is all about her music rather than her.
