You mean Dolly Parton's, Houston just covered it.

Is it really worth it to travel from Japan just for the possibility of winning $5,000?

She has a great singing voice. I wish TiA the best of luck in the contest. Smile

Emerje is correct- Dolly Parton is actually the original singer of I Will Always Love You.

She's actually been living in the US prior to this, from what I can gather. Thought it was about the more recent Tia at first....lol, confused me. I hate it when artists have really generic names like LiSA, Hitomi, ect.

At least LiSA has the all upper-case-except-the-"i" thing going on.

Good luck to Tia! Is this going to be aired on TV at some point, or it's just a concert competition? I'm guessing the latter.

We went to one of these X-Factor competition qualifiers before, all the main judges present. They showed some of it on TV.

But TiA is not an amateur though.
