In 2005, a discouraged actress from Sacramento, CA made an album with a couple of singles that got MTV airplay. She was 16 at the time, and since this was her only full-length album, it seems early for her career to peak.....
The song itself is pretty standard fair bubblegum pop/rock, but it's earnestly performed. Larson co-wrote about half the album, but not this song.
OK, let's stop being coy. We all saw Captain Marvel. We all saw Avengers: Endgame. We all read this post so we know Brie Larson can sing.
I said she was 16. The album was released in October 2005, about two weeks after her 16th birthday, but was originally slated to be released in 2004..... so, do the math, people. This performance from January 2005 would put this future Academy Award winner at 15. Her stage presence is a bellweather for the greatness to come.
