Product Description

CD packaged in a standard jewel case with an eight page fold-out insert.

Amazon.com

While Nashville's "country for kids" campaign has largely been a bust, this 12-year-old plows fearlessly and headlong into anything and everything thrown his way. Tammy Wynette's classic "'Til I Can Make It on My Own" doesn't faze him. Neither do cotton-candy pop oldies ("Little Things" and "Little Bitty Pretty One"), oddball novelties ("The Snake Song"), or inspirational fare ("There's a Hero"). His credible delivery of "Oklahoma," the moving tale of one boy's trip to meet a long-vanished father, is a fine performance that transcends his age. Don't blame him for the weak spots. Credit for the cookie-cutter arrangements and such soggy ballads as the preachy title track goes to multiple producers Don Cook (Music Row's dean of formulaic production), David Malloy, and Blake Chancey. As always, their goals are to satisfy the one-dimensional country-radio consultants who dictate what gets played, nothing more. Long ago, producers Owen Bradley and Billy Sherrill helped Brenda Lee and Tanya Tucker, respectively, build youthful success into enduring adult careers. If only young Gilman had such visionaries enhancing his talent. --Rich Kienzle

Format: Audio CD
I first heard Billy Gilman in what seems to be a typical way - while bored on a Saturday I paused while flipping on CMT to figure out why a kid was singing on a school bus. The images were haunting, but much less than Billy's voice. I'm not a country fan by any stretch of the imagination, but I ended up buying the CD from Amazon.
What an album! It is funny and touching and reminds me of being younger and not knowing about so many of the issues and problems of adult life. I have a tendency to listen an album to death until I can't stand it anymore, but 2 months later I still pop it in. That is as long as any of my nearly 200 CDs have made it. Some of the songs are a little too cutesy and highlight the fact that Billy's voice hasn't changed yet more than I would like, which is why I only gave 4 stars (Little Bitty Pretty One is the worst), but I was mostly amazed that he could transmit the complex emotions that went with the lyrics in One Voice, What's Forever For, and Oklahoma.
How can any 11 (now 12) year old possibly have such a handle on his voice and his emotions, and still come off to be a normal kid?
I must say that I am proud to stick One Voice in among my normal tastes of jazz and classical, and I even put up with snide comments from friends for having some boy's cute album in my collection. I wish Billy luck as he continues his career, hopefully his voice will change well and he will not lose all of the innocence that is so obvious (and appealing) in his first work. Basically, if you even begin to like One Voice, buy the CD, you won't be disappointed. I wasn't.

I must admit I am not a country music fan. So to rate this CD with 5 stars, it MUST be exceptional, and it really IS EXCEPTIONAL. It is very rare for me to find a CD where I actually like ALL of the songs, but Billy sings each song so beautifully, that I really enjoy every one. While Billy has become well known for his amazing rendition of "One voice", there are several other songs that are amazingly good, that I only hope will get air time on the radio. Songs like "Oklahoma" (not related to the musical) and "There's a hero"; are truely great songs that are worth getting the CD just to hear them. Billy brings also brings new meaning to old favorites like "Whats Forever For". If you are a country music fan, you will love this CD. If you are not a country music fan, you will still love this CD. Either way, you cant lose. I can only hope that Billy Gilman will continue to bring us the great music that he has on this alblum. I look foreward to hearing a lot more great music from him.

I never cry.
Ever.
And yet, when I first heard Billy Gilman's "Oklahoma," there were tears streaming down my face.
I don't really know why I am writing this review. If you like it the music, you'll buy it, and if you don't, you won't, and I know not many of you reading this are going to buy this CD just because of ME, but hey, what the heck. I can give it a shot.
Well, where do I begin? Well, let's see... I first saw Mr. Gilman on GAC. I was mainly channel surfing, once in awhle stopping on MTV or TLC (My usual channels). My dad and little brother were in the room watching with me. As I passed by GAC, (One of my dad's favorite channels,) I saw a young boy riding in a bus. Without pausing, I quickly changed the channel. My dad: "Oh, Katie! Stop! You'll like this video!" I rolled my eyes and groaned. "I doubt it." I said. I HATE country. Just to humor him, I flipped back to GAC. A small boy was gazing out the bus window. A young mother was holding her child. A man and woman arguing. A voice was singing in the background. The camera turned back to the small boy. I was then alarmed to see the boy's mouth moving to the words. I quickly glanced back at my dad. What kind of video was this? A little boy lip-syncing to a woman's voice? Wha-? I sat there, very confused, watching the rest of the video. A beautiful song, yes, but I couldn't figure out what kind of video this was supposed to be. Then it occured to me (Yes, I am blonde), that THE BOY was singing! Again, wha-? As I continued to watch, I grew more and more aware of how great this kid was. He had the tone and ability of someone who had been singing decades longer than him. And what a beautiful song!

Saw this kid on the AMC awards show for the first time and was really impressed with his showmanship. Then they started playing this ONE VOICE video on CMT. I loved the song and remembered that it was the kid on the awards show. I could'nt wait for the CD to come out to hear what else he could sing. I have to admit I was really suprised. He has so much depth in his vocal training that you can not hear by just listening to the single. Best song on the album in my opinion is "Spend Another Night". It talks about falling in love maybe for the first time and holding that girl in your dreams until the day that it is right to be together forever. Best showcase of his vocal talent. Awesome Song. "Oklahoma" will put tears in your eyes if you have a heart. "Whats Forever For" puts a hole new meaning to this song being sung from a child's point of view of the world around him. "I Want To Get To Ya" is a great upbeat song about being attracted to the opposite sex at any age. "There's a Hero" is a song about great inspiration that is available to everyone's heart. Overall the "PASSION" that this kid sings with would make Anthony Robbins "Proud" And to see him sing it on TV programs shows his entertainment skills that are way beyond his years. Awesome Kid with an innocent heart and Awesome CD. Can't wait to hear more. And when his voice changes he will only get better.
