Subject: I have found a DVD that I think you would enjoy
An international BOOM.

"Although she only has 2 albums ("Not that kind" and "Freak of nature"), this beautiful and very talented singer has broke all record sellings in Europe, selling 10 million copies with only 2 cd's in the market.
Her appearance in the U.S was last year and her only official single "One day in your life" bearly touched the charts. But the funny part is that everyone who listen one of her songs, simply loves it. The whole thing is that she doesn't have a big promotion on TV shows or radio stations.
This DVD includes her 10 video collection, with songs like "I'm otta love love" which was her first single. The song is very good, is a dance song such as "Not that kind", "I was made for loving you", "One day in your life" (Directed by Dave Meyers), "Boom" (the official song of the 2002 FIFA organization) and "Why'd you lie to me" that is a very good video.
You'll also find the video of the first single from "freak of nature", "Paid my dues" and finally you'll find the ballad videos from her songs "Cowboys and kisses" and "You'll never be alone".
With the special features, includes remixed videos, behind-the-scenes and a special about Anastacia, between others."
Anastacia Deserves American Success

"Anastacia was born in America. Anastacia was first seen on American MTV. Why in God's name has Anastacia remained so anonymous in the country that she calls home?Plain and simple. She's different.And different people are usually critically acclaimed, but have trouble finding lasting careers over on this side of the pond. Look at Macy Gray's career. Newcomer Norah Jones will probably be met with a similar fate.Having been a fan of Anastacia for a long-time, I was estactic and shocked to find out that a DVD video collection had been put together. I've heard all of her songs, but I have only had a chance to put an image to one ("One Day In Your Life"). Sony did a great job providing PICTURE-AND-SOUND-PERFECT-QUALITY videos, as well as well-edited, humorous, and informative "Making The Video"-esque documentaries.In addition to that, the remix videos are great. The new takes on the songs are really good. As well as the biography, the "Who's Anastacia" short, which is only about four minutes long, but is very informative. Before today, Anastacia was a personality-less voice, now she is a living, breathing, vibrant performer in my eyes."
A must have for all Anastacia fans!

"You all just have to check out this cool DVD! It's packed with all her videos from the "Not That Kind" and "Freak Of Nature" abums and on the bonus section you can come along behind the scenes of the videos "One Day In Your Life", "Boom", "Why D' You Lie To Me" and "You'll Never Be Alone" and what you see is simply Anastacia as the cool, funny girl that she is and you feel that you really get to know her. She's natural and without any "I'm a star, I'm a diva"-attitude and I got surprised how really down to earth she is. Another thing about this DVD is the awesome remix videos on the bonus section, I mean - they're HOT! Escpecially the Hex Hector video of "I'm Outta Love" which I've been drooling after since I saw it on a Top 20 Chart show on a norwegian channel three years ago. And now I finally have it on DVD! I'm in heaven! lol And the Kerry Chandler remix video of "Not That Kind" is also cool, a really neat remix. This is truly a 100% Anastacia essential collection, not to be missed!"
A hit everywhere in the world...except at home in the US

"If we were still in the 60's or 70's...maybe the 80's, Anastacia would be big hit in the states; but not in the new millenium. This video collection provides the clues as to why not. She has the looks of the younger pop vixens dominating Top 40 in the US and can outsing all of them, but soul/pop music in the US is driven by style (sex-driven choreography and posing), not substance (top-notch vocals and production). Therefore, a white soul singer who recalls Chaka Khan, Taylor Dayne, and the like can't hold a spot on our charts. Fortunately for Ms. A., the rest of the world still appreciates a recording artist who can actually sing without promoting her wares with a collection of video lap dances. Carry on, Anastacia, carry on. I'm listening...and watching."
