EP Rookie Honor of the Month: Cathia

                                          EP Newbie Honor of the Month: Miss Cathia Ochoa

Since her debut on Season 4 of the Emmy-winning singing competition The Voice, Miss Cathia Ochoa has left a huge impression on audiences everywhere as her powerful voice coupled with her exotic Latin looks earned her a distinct picturesque in the eyes of that beholder that is of I. Having the honor of being the first ever contestant in Voice History to hit a "whistle-register" note, Miss Cathia has undoubtedly proved her place as a standout vocal talent with an above-normal vocal range holding reminiscent to incredible divas such as Mariah Carey, Minnie Riperton, and Peruvian songbird Yma Sumac. And though she gave an astounding homage to Whitney Houston by performing her legendary hit I Have Nothing, the audience ultimately did not have enough fanfare and she was tearfully evicted from the competition after losing to a bland, near-do-well, pretty-boy characteresque.

Cathia Rocks Whitney Houston

However, fortunately for Miss Cathia, she is well-educated and well-versed in the music business, having attended schooling for such. Also, it is notable that Miss Cathia has experience working in a recording studio and would thus have increased access to the workings of a soundbooth. Just kidding. But in all seriousness, Miss Cathia is DEFINITELY experienced with the music business and would thus blend in the recording industry seamlessly.

And from there we get Cathia's debut EP album: Unbreakable. Which features numerous original songs in a fresh mix of pop, Latin, ballads, dance, R&B, and even reggae genres, allowing Cathia to show the full extent of her incredible versatile voice. Her hit singles Without You and Unbreakable are available in itunes along with the entire album. Please click the below link and embark on a fantastic lyrical voyage with Miss songbird Cathia, including studio versions of all her Voice performances. Unbreakable was my first CD purchase from any musical artist ever, I kid you not. It's THAT GOOD!

In addition, I would like to showcase the vocal specialties of Miss Cathia, including her soprano range and her Whistle Register. First evident in her Knockout performance of Mr. Know It All by Kelly Clarkson, the whistle note will leave all of you stunned by its impeccable beauty.

Mr. Know it All Studio with Whistles!
                                              Miss Cathia wows with a Kelly Clarkson hit!

Being an identifiable Latin Artist with Latin ethnic backgrounds despite having roots in Bronx, New York, Miss Cathia is second to none in her ability to sing in Spanish, essentially the next Shakira in this blogger's opinion. And to be honest, I believe that Miss Cathia exceeds Shakira's yodeling style when singing her same songs.

Antes De Las Seis - Ochoa Style!
I Will Never Surrender!
                                   Miss Cathia gives a STUNNING performance of a Shakira hit!

 So please, go out, listen to Cathia, subscribe to her Youtube Channel, purchase her songs, and support her music career! We need artists like her to come out and show us a better side of the musical industry. It's been a while since we had an artist with such a mix of talent, variety, charm, charisma, and beauty. I promise you, she'll give all of us something different from the junk piled up in the music industry as of currently.
