My Morning Coffee Break song: bÉLA

Here's a new artist I've been listening to this morning. Her name is bÉLA, currently residing in Los Angeles. Classically trained on the piano, Bela began singing as a way to boost her confidence. She recorded her first album in 2007 and began touring all over the world, reaching the top of the charts and receiving accolades throughout Portugal and Spain - even getting invited to represent Portugal at last year's MTV Europe Awards in Madrid, Spain. While winning the John Lennon Songwriting Competition, Bela was getting airplay on Los Angeles' World Famous KROQ by non other that the Mayor of Sunset Strip himself - Rodney Bingenheimer. Currently, she's working on her sophomore album set to be released soon.

Below is the video for "Do You Care" off her debut album ...The Death of GypsyX.
