  1. What a wonderful website. Very useful. I was searching for a data base like this for ages. Thank you. Well, I have only one request. I’m searching for the beautiful voice’s owner in the 1996 Atlanta Closing Ceremony singing that wonderful song just after the aborígenes start dancing in the Sydney 2000 introduction. Thank you very much.
