WOW!!!

I've never heard this music before and after a few years of enjoying Avax I'm compelled to write my first comment ever just to say a big THANKS for such BEAUTIFUL music, I would love to actually see this concert, is there a DVD of it?

One big WARNING though: this music is HIGHLY addictive It seems I can't stop playing it!!!
If you like Female Vocals you should give this music a try you won't regret it.
