Someone who has the odd habit of collecting non-English covers of English language songs.

I suspect that the two persons pictured are actually one and the same. But I can only find a couple of blog posts that make a bare assertion that they are the same. The first is a 1994 release by The Amazing Anat, and the second is of Anat Cohen, a New York Grammy nominated professional jazz musician who specializes in Latin jazz (born in 1979). If they are the same person, then she would have been 14 years old when the CD was released. It's unusual, but not unheard of (look at Stevie Wonder).

Those blog posts state that "The Amazing Anat" had some minor success with a couple of releases, then left the world of music, and moved to America.

The fun part is that the CD contains an adaptation of Sweet Child o' Mine , with Hebrew lyrics that ACUM credits to a certain Jesse Towers (who wrote and performed a 1979 disco song called Give Me Your Body While We're Dancin')!?

So if these are actually the same person, I imagine her New York handlers told her to bury her earlier discography. And here I am trying to dig it up out of the grave. Smile

Can anyone else make a connection?

PS: All of Anat Cohen's discographies state that her debut release was in 2005.

PPS: I couldn't find much on Jesse Towers, either.

Actually, those blog posts don't even say they are the same person, its just some circumstantial evidence.
