Music Monday: Sumi Jo Edition

Good music is food for the soul. Amazing music is like... cake, but only if cake were incredibly nutritious. This is an aria from Gianni Schicchi, the third of the three parter that I saw last month. Alas, Sumi Jo didn't perform that one - she's a coloratura soprano from Korea with a voice so lovely that it knocks birds right out of the sky, where they sit in dejected huddles realizing they've been outdone, and might as well give up. It doesn't hurt that she's astonishingly pretty, too.
