Who sings the song on the GM commercial shown during the olympics?

That's a question that's being repeated all over the internet. The song and the voice of the singer are hauntingly beautiful.

I tracked her down. The singer is Brandi Carlile from the Pacific Northwest. The song is "My Story". Here she is, performing it on youtube.

Thanks for the link to that, Frank. I'd never heard the song or seen the commercial but going to YouTube is so easy, especially when someone posts a link to a specific video, and now that I've heard it I can see why it's so popular.

Hey Uncle Frank - Speaking of butt slaps, did you see the segment on Kerri Walsh losing her wedding ring? The ending was priceless! :biggrin:

Nancy and I were rolling on the floor laughing. The shocked look on the good samaritan's face was, as you said, priceless.
