UK MUSIC: SABRINA WASHINGTON – OMG (OH MY GOSH)

Former Mis-Teeq front woman Sabrina Washington is back on the music scene with her debut single OMG (Oh My Gosh). I think Sabrina looks great in the video, but the person responsible for the entire look of the video and it’s concept doesn’t seem to have an original bone in his/her body.

Via Digital Spy Fabrice Morvan, one half of the duo who sparked outrage in 1990 when it emerged that they had used session vocalists to sing their tracks, insisted that modern acts are similarly fraudulent with their music. The star pointed to lip-synching during live concerts and studio technology such as vocal auto-tuners as examples to back up his point.
