Kaci - I Will Learn To Love Again

Kaci comes from the USA, and started her career in the UK when "Paradise" reached #11 in March 2001 when she was just 13 years old. Subsequent hits included "Tu Amor" (#24 in July 2001), and a cover of The Partridge Family's "I Think I Love You" which reached #10 in February 2002, and her album "Paradise" reached #47 a fortnight later. A song from her album "I'm Not Anybody's Girl", was featured on the soundtrack to the Gwyneth Paltrow movie "A View From The Top" - and reached #55 in August 2003.

After this, Kaci took a break, and she turned her hand to songwriting - she co-wrote "Wrong", sung by Kimberley Locke, a contestant on American Idol 2. She also sang a track which won BBC Radio 2's "Sold On Song" songwriting competition in 2004, "Txt Me" is about the joys of texting (!), and interestingly has recently re-appeared on Radio 2's playlist!

Now 17 years old, Kaci is releasing her first new material for 3 years, and has recently resurfaced with "I Will Learn To Love Again" - a fantastic dance/pop anthem written by Diane Warren from the soundtrack to "The Perfect Man", starring Hilary Duff and Heather "Amanda Woodward" Locklear. Sounding unlike anything in the US charts at the moment, it's a refreshing change to the mundane R'n'B which rules the US charts, and has slowly but surely been taking over the UK charts too. The video has been playing on satellite music station B4, but it's yet to be seen whether the track gets a release over here. We need more music like this in the UK charts to keep the spirit of pop alive...
