Young singer Isatou impresses with debut single

17-year-old Isatou's debut single ‘The Whole Damn World Is Going Crazy’ couldn't be better timed.

The Whole Damn World Is Going Crazy - is a cover version of 'John Gary Williams' classic soul gem from over four decades ago. This first encounter of Isatou's voice impresses as she breathes new life into this track with a modern, soulful/pop arrangement.
