Foreign - Ray Adams - Hear my song Violetta. Ray is Norwegian although you wouldn't believe it from his English pronunciation; although we would be inclined to pronounce Violetta as Vi not Vee.

John Mcormack - Its a long way to Tipperrary (Ireland) This recording is from 1914 so a few scratches are present.

Lucille Starr the French Canadian singing in French - Chanson d'Amour

Jim Reeves - Sarie Marais. South Africa - I can always remember the Auckland Town Hall in 1956 and the Boks singing this.

Israel Kamakawiwo'ole - Mona Lisa. From Hawaii. He had a huge hit with Over the Rainbow and many of his songs are available on YouTube. He died in 1997 at age 38 - due to the fact that he was not a small man - 349 kg and1.9 m.
