South Korean native Elli K has a gift for the theatrical pop music that fans of Disney films will warm to immediately. That’s particularly true of her songs “My Everything” and “Dawn.” Both are duets with a male counterpart in which each pledges undying love to the other for eternity. Kinda corny, kinda saccharine, nevertheless, Elli K’s soft, skilled soprano invests these catchy, storybook confections with the ideal voicings of vulnerability and sincerity and purity of spirit. Each song is lushly arranged and orchestrated for maximum heart-tugging effect. An interesting mis-step, though, is “New Life,” a song whose Americana style simply does not make for a good fit with Elli K’s natural gifts.
