Dido launches this compilation CD with her massive hit, "Thankyou." R&B singer Macy Gray rocks with her rare live track, "Come Together." One can feel the excitement and mood of this explosive singer. Stacy Orrico's "Stuck" and Avril Lavigne's "I'm With You" highlight these two songstress' recent success in the pop/rock market.

Well-known, established vocalists Sarah McLachlan singing "Angel," Tori Amos singing the live version of "Cornflake Girl," and Aimee Mann singing "Calling It Quits" take center stage withtheir hits.
