I just read the Observer’s cover story this week. It’s a profile of Linda Septien, who is a voice coach and star maker responsible for a long list of pop performers you’ve heard on Radio Disney. Three things about that story jumped out at me:
1. Septien is 62 years old? Holy cow. She looks great for even 42.
2. Did the Observer not see Skip Hollandsworth’s 2006 profile of Septien in Texas Monthly?
