Anette Olzon Shine

“Shine” is the debut solo effort from the ex-Nightwish and ex-Alyson Avenue vocalist Anette Olzon. Her angelic and powerful voice will never be doubted. Voices like hers do not happen upon us all that often. Just to clear the air right up front, I will not further address the elephant in the room that is
