The Bay Area's own singer/songwriter/pianist/soulsista Oona Garthwaite was featured on "So You Think You Can Dance" last week with her song "Tore My Heart." Kelsea Taylor used this tune for her Lyrical Contemporary audition and called a "beautifully disaterous weirdo" and "slightly crazy" by judges.
Oona says on her iLike blog:
