A Little Monday Music - Anya Taylor-Joy (Downtown)

The Voice of an Angel

Comments on YouTube

The first minutes are so haunting and quite scary actually. Omg, she's perfect

Her drawl while singing is so hypnotic and her gentle high notes are just majestic

Anya has the kind of face that is timeless. She could have been popular at any decade in movie history. She could play any star's story, from the 1920s~ She's amazing.

She absolutely nails the sadness without going emotionally over the top. It's great to hear this classic redone with a different attitude. This gave me chills

She just needs to stop it. We can’t handle this much talent and beauty from one person.

I fell in love at first sight on Anya. Hearing her sing just shutdown a part of my brain.

The first time I saw her was as a redhead in the poster for Queen's Gambit looking up at the camera with eyes larger than life. I have been borderline obsessed with her ever since...

She acts, dances, speaks God knows how many languages perfectly, she models, she's gorgeous and now she also sings?, is there anything this Lady can't do?!

Anya could squeeze emotions out of a rock with her voice.
