(CNN) -- At just 23 years old, Indonesia's Anggun has already learned three languages -- Indian, French and English -- and put them to work. She just released her American debut, "Snow on the Sahara," which she recorded in French first. "I think that every artist should know how to sing in a different language," the rising star said, noting that when she sings in French or English it gives her work a new dimension. "It's still me," she says, "but it's not the same sound." Ready to hear her sound?
