Over on Fans of David (great article BTW!) is a feature of Dan Cassidy, Eva Cassidy’s brother, who had this to say about The Voice:
I am familiar with David’s singing talent, as I have watched him several times on American Idol on TV up here in Iceland where I live, and have been very impressed with his wonderful singing each time I have watched him.
