Soulful British songbird Paloma Faith is currently riding high at the top of the UK chart with her Sigma collaboration “Changing.” That said, she’s missing out on all the glory back home, as she’s in the States to promote the American release of third album A Perfect Contradiction. (In fact, we just had a chat with the lovely Paloma this morning, so stay tuned for our full one-on-one with her.)

Last night Faith hit up the Late Show With David Letterman for a flawless performance of “Only Love Can Hurt Like This,” a ballad penned by Diane Warren that recently gave the singer her latest Top 10 hit in England and her first #1 in Australia. Could America be far behind?

Watch above, and prepare to become a fan instantly, if you aren’t already one. (Seriously — get those high notes, girl.)
