Lady Singing on a Train

Here's a touristic music kind of story for you.   It happened earlier this month while I was in Panama touring the canal and the countryside.
After spending some time at the Mira Flores' locks, we boarded a train to travel back across Panama to rendezvous with the cruise ship in Colon.  About two thirds the way into our train ride however, we stopped.  Our tour guide said that it was to allow another train with cargo to journey thru.  We never saw this other train so who knows what the real explanation for the prolonged delay was.

However, while we idled away there somewhere in the middle of Panama, our tour guide asked the attractive, young lady working on the train to perform a song for us.  She did so by singing an Alicia Keys' song.
Wish I was a big time music exec so I could sign the young lady to a record deal and then forever be able to tell this story about how she was "discovered." 

Here is the original version of the song that our train lady sang for us.
