The album’s second single in the US—a gorgeous rendition of the classic ‘I Will Always Love You,’ is currently at the 6 position on the Billboard Hot Singles charts. It follows the success of her first single, a cover of Bob Marley’s popular ‘Three Little Birds’ which previously reached #1 on the Billboard Chart.
‘I Will Always Love You,’ most often associated with Whitney Houston, has a deep personal meaning to the young singer, as her grandmother, "Nan," sang it to Connie when she was a baby. The single also features the newly re-vocaled "You Raise Me Up,’ the track that closes ‘Over the Rainbow’. Sales of the album are stronger than ever as music fans continue to discover the young singer who has already charmed not only Mr. Cowell and his fellow judges, but the likes of US chat show Queens, Oprah Winfrey and Ellen DeGeneres.
