A song comparing her love to stars

Romantic song sung by female singer, with lyrics like, "Why do I need stars when I have you"?


- Female singer with a jazzy sound, kind of like Duffy
- Heard on CBC radio (99.1 in Toronto, Ontario)
- Song was played in between news segments at around 6:30 am today (20 minutes ago)
- It was a love song, judging from the lyrics
- The singer had a woman's name, with first and last name
- Another lyric was something like "you make my dreams come true"

I can't recall any of the other lyrics. Have tried Googling and had no luck. Help! :-0

Best answer: I think I was listening to her this morning as well - I don't think I caught the song you're looking for, but she sang one called "Distracted." Her name's Alysha Brillinger and her shows page pegs her as being on Metro Morning from 5:30 am to 8:30 am today.

Best answer: If her name is Alysha Brillinger, then the song you're looking for is likely called "I Don't Need the Stars".

It doesn't quite fit, but If the Stars were Mine by Melody Gardot? It's more samba than jazz, but it might be it.
