A country is a political state, nation, or controlled territory. It is often referred to as the land of an individual’s birth, residence, or citizenship.
A country may be an independent sovereign state or part of a larger state, as a non-sovereign or formerly sovereign political division, a physical territory with a government, or a geographic region associated with sets of previously independent or differently associated people with distinct political characteristics. It is not inherently sovereign.
Countries can refer both to sovereign states and to other political entities,such as Vatican City, while other times it can refer only to states. For example, the CIA World Factbook uses the word in its “Country name” field to refer to “a wide variety of dependencies, areas of special sovereignty, uninhabited islands, and other entities in addition to the traditional countries or independent states”.The largest country in the world is Russia, while the most populous is China, followed by India and the United States of America. The newest country with widespread international recognition as a sovereign state is South Sudan.

Singing is the act of producing musical sounds with the voice and augments regular speech by the use of sustained tonality, rhythm, and a variety of vocal techniques. A person who sings is called a singer or vocalist (in jazz and popular music). Singers perform music (arias, recitatives, songs, etc.) that can be sung with or without accompaniment by musical instruments. Singing is often done in an ensemble of musicians, such as a choir of singers or a band of instrumentalists. Singers may perform as soloists or accompanied by anything from a single instrument (as in art song or some jazz styles) up to a symphony orchestra or big band. Different singing styles include art music such as opera and Chinese opera, Indian music and religious music styles such as gospel, traditional music styles, world music, jazz, blues, ghazal and popular music styles such as pop, rock and electronic dance music.
Singing can be formal or informal, arranged or improvised. It may be done as a form of religious devotion, as a hobby, as a source of pleasure, comfort or ritual, as part of music education or as a profession. Excellence in singing requires time, dedication, instruction and regular practice. If practice is done on a regular basis then the sounds can become clearer and stronger. Professional singers usually build their careers around one specific musical genre, such as classical or rock, although there are singers with crossover success (singing in more than one genre). Professional singers usually take voice training provided by voice teachers or vocal coaches throughout their careers.
Groves’ manner of death was ruled “natural,” the report states.

In the days following her death, Ryan Williams, a close friend of the singer-songwriter, opened up to Fox News about her tragic past.
Williams, of Seattle, Wash., said he met Groves in 2011 just one week after she moved to Los Angeles, Calif. and was signed to a major record label. He told us Groves had a contagious personality and the ability to light up any room.
“I was always concerned for Cady. She was like another young sister to me,” Williams said. “It goes hand in hand with her creativity. Whatever she was feeling, whether it was happy or the opposite, it just fully engulfed her emotionally, which made for wonderful art but it did take a toll on her.”
Williams recalled Groves reeling from a “tragic family past.” Two of her brothers passed away, one of whom Groves was close to in age. The singer-songwriter found healing in her music but it didn’t eliminate the traumas she encountered.

“Her dad wasn’t really around anymore and music was really tough on her as well,” Williams said. “She had so many tragic things happen to her in her life. There was always someone’s birthday that wasn’t around anymore, like her brothers. There was always kind of like a dark shadow around her.”
The pal said Groves found healing through her music.
“She had a vision. She was constantly going back and forth with the label and her management because she wanted to get things right. She really cared,” he shared.
