    I think Billy Gilman is so talented. I have been a fan of Billy's ever since he came out with his hit song titled "One Voice." He is really really good looking and I love the way he dressed. He has such an awesome personality and sense of humor. My favourite songs that he sings are: "One Voice," and "Elizabeth." Billy is an amazing singer and song writer. He is an amazing singing, especially for his age. I can't wait until he releases his next album. It's going to be so great! I enjoy listening to all of his songs.moreless
