Miley who? Since the release of Selena Gomez's first CD, “Kiss & Tell,” the hearts of many fans have transferred from the kid-candy pop of Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus to the sweet sound of Gomez's soothing voice. The Disney actress tries to reach out to her audience as she reveals her full potential in her new pop-rock songs. Can the native Texan prove to the world that she can do more than act and put on a pretty face? Will her audience accept the sudden change in Gomez's career? We'll see.

Known more as an actress on the hit show, “Wizards of ­Waverly Place,” Gomez's singing talent was hidden ­behind hilarious facial expressions and comedic lines. When I first heard the familiar sound of her voice flow with the catchy tune of “Cruella De Vil” from Disney's “101 Dalmatians,” I leaped in excitement. She blew me away with her optimistic voice, and amazing control. Selena Gomez will dominate the charts with her bubbly personality, rock-hard beats, and soul-touching lyrics.

As a new singer, Gomez brought her best to her debut album with heartfelt songs like “The Way I Loved You” and fast, dance beats of “More” and “Naturally.” The beats control the listener's mind, giving anyone the urge to get up and dance. The lyrics scream fun and excitement and the catchy melody makes the song difficult not to sing constantly the next day.

I highly recommend buying this talented Disney star's first CD. I have no doubt that Selena Gomez will find her way to the top of the charts and leave a permanent impression.

i can see why she is stealing mileys fans. i personally do not listen to that type of music however they are very simillar styles and selena's like the shiny new toy in the music biz. she also has a spot on a hit show locked. i do not listen to her however her acting is very amusing and fun to watch. she seems to represent disney well however soon she should branch out so she isnt seen as a kid on disney all of her life like miley

Very well writing! The article was excellent but I don’t agree. I think Gomez is a good actress but not great maybe she will get there someday. Her songs may be catchy but not amazing and when live her vocals are not that great at all.

Great review! I'm not a fan of Selena's music. I'm not saying she's not a good singer, but I prefer to see her acting than singing. If she's really going to pursue a music career, she's would have to really work hard on taking away the "Disney" image.

I like this - I'm not crazy about Selena, but good article. Just wanted to point out that it isn't just Selena Gomez doing the album - the album is actually Selena Gomez and the Scene.

I'm not the biggest Selena fan, but I definately agree with this! It was well written, and very well opinionated, as much as I like Miley and Demi, Selena does have a talent. Well done Tuki(;

Out of all those other Disney wannabees (Miley Cyrus, Jonas Brothers, etc.) I actually really like Selena Gomez. She's a talented actress (and role model, unlike Miley Cyrus), a pretty good singer (unlike the Jonas Brothers) and just a pretty down-to-earth girl that hasn't let celebrity go to her head! Personally, I actually have some respect for her because she's worked hard to achieve those things.

It seems like that every Disney star has to sing. I love Selena's attitude in her songs. Miley cyrus will soon be forgotten in Hollywood. I think Demi is also amazing.
