She is noted for her powerful, raspy sounding voice and ability to hit high notes in her chest voice.
Anastacia became an icon in Europe, Oceania, and South Africa but never made as big as an impact in the U.S. Anastacia's music, with its often deep meanings, and pop-esque tunes appeal to a wide range of ages. She became famous by her trademark glasses, that she used until recently.
She's a spiritual person, but she doesn't follow any religion.
