England’s newest singing-sensation, Zarif, is the daughter of an Iranian-Jewish mother and Scottish father.

Zarif, whose name means “delicate” in Persian, is signed by Sony BMG and is arguably as good as (if not better than) the forever-intoxicated British pop/jazz-artist: Amy Winehouse.

Currently touring with Beyonce, the half-Iranian songstress’s style is described as “pop/funk/soul” – and soul… she’s got!

Seriously, the girl can sing! (Which is more than refreshing when one considers the “talent” that America pumps out and sells to us as “singers” like: Katy Perry, Jessica Simpson, and Britney Spears who quickly come to our mind.)

Click hereto watch a video of Zarif’s live performance of her hit song (and our personal favorite): “Over.”
