    "broken vow" by lara fabian or josh groban.

    (a lot of josh groban's songs are good for lyrical solos especially "to where you are", "you're still you" "you raise me up" "so she dances" i would check out his music. he is one of my favorite singers)

    "in the arms of the angels" by sarah mclachlan

    "hallelujah" by rufus wainwright

    "wild horses" by natasha bedingfield

    "belief" by gavin degraw

    "walking in memphis" by marc cohn


    "smooth criminal" by michael jackson

    "tres deseos (three wishes)" by gloria estefan. it is fast and in spanish but very fun.

    "gotta get through this" by daniel bedingfield

    "ease on down the road" a girl at my school is doing a tap solo to this song this year and it is awesome there is so much you can do with the song

    "i'm gonna get you baby" i don't know the artist but it is from the cd "pulse"

    "everybody, everybody" by black box. i did this song a couple of years ago. and it's a song you don't hear often.

    "hey pachuco"

    "ice ice baby" by vanilla ice

    "let me see your footwork" it's hard to find but it's good. the version i have is by baltimore club music.

    "fill me in" by craig david

    "sandstorm" by darude

    "diamonds are a girl's best friend" i saw someone do it in competition before and it was amazing
