I'm for the untarnished natural talent of Olivia Adelman. Up and coming pureness and perfection, just like my daughter and 3 other Monroeville high school gals. It's a wonderful delight to have a kid like this.


Thank you! Monroeville has a lot of talent packed in that little town. :)


Any relation to Mike Adelman? that might explain why she is there


She's there because she sings from the heart. Most people don't do that. They just sing a song that they like. Even Taylor Swift said of her early songs she wrote when she was 13 and 14...I watched a lot of movies and write about their romances and heartaches. Good music fromm the sonngwriters that lived or saw in others their ideas for the song, Haggard, Toim T. Hall, John Anderson, Hank Williams Sr. and Jr., Randy Owen of Alabama, and others, all able to moan (or yell) it from the heart because that's where it developes. That's what touches us. Tanya Tucker did David Allen Coes "Would you lay with me in a field of stone" when she was a kid. It was a hit, but even Coe wondered if she should have done it due to the maturity of the words. Miss Adelman sings from her heart. The only thing I can say to any upcoming singer or songwriter is that they do the songs they live or bare witness to, like her brother. Sing it like you lived it.


no relation.
