I just thought it's so sweet that there is a compilation of what Imogen Heap's fans said about her in twitter. So, here you go.....

(written & inspired by fans via Twitter)*

“Imogen is an eccentric, innovative musician who blends aspects of the world
around her into a beautiful universe of song.” @Jack, founder Twitter

1. A Grammy nominated multi-instrumentalist, who began writing music by her 13th birthday
(and broke America by her 28th)
2. An innovative singer-songwriter with a quirky and inspirational character2, a tech savvy musician with an eccentric sense of style and uniquely graceful music
3. Imogen Heap is a profoundly English artist whose songs transcend time and
place to conjure captivating digital dreamscapes of love, loss and hopefulness.
4. Imogen’s distinct, eclectronic-style, a brilliant kaleidoscopic symphony of voices, beats,
sounds and emotions
5. mixing beautiful lyrics with breathtaking melodies
6. traditional instrumentation with computers, to create a sound that’s folk-hued and digital and sparks the imagination
7. has won her over 350,000 friends on MySpace and more than 250,000=followers on Twitter.
8. Fans include Brian Eno, Jeff Beck and Scrubs star Zach Braff
9. while US chat show hosts David Letterman, Jay Leno, Carson Daly and Hollywood mega blogger, Perez Hilton, have all championed her ability, musically and physically, to transfix
10. Imogen is, in all senses, an EXPERIENCE
11. Age 5, she crept downstairs in the middle of the night, carved her name in BIG letters on the
grand piano lid and swore it wasn't her
12. Age 12 she learned how to layer sound with an Atari and sequencing software.
13. Age 18 she signed her first record contract and age 20 she released her debut album, iMegaphone
14. An anagram of her name, iMegaphone mixed angst with vulnerability, quirky noise with sombre reflection, to be refreshing and intriguing
15. An aurally delicious blend of emotive piano, understated technology and haunting melodies
16. it was a promising experiment in turning emotions into something tangible
17. Produced by David Kahne, Eurythmic Dave Stewart and Bjork/Madonna collaborator Guy Sigsworth it attracted a loyal following and her first film credit
18. single "Come Here Boy" featured in Rupert Penry-Jones’s Virtual Sexuality
19. 2002 saw a new side to Imogen as she embarked on a short collaborative journey with Guy
Sigsworth, forming electronica duo Frou Frou
20. Their album, Details, shifted from the darker iMegaphone to an airy, dream-pop landscape
21. Laden with skipping beats, cool synth layers, and stunning attention to detail
22. its glittering melancholy was punctuated with beautifully intricate and poetic lyrics
23. Together Imogen & Guy were able to take computer music and bring from it real sensuality and emotion
24. Frou Frou toured Europe and America, and became an underground hit after Scrubs star Zach Braff used “Let Go” in his film Garden
25. The duo also recorded a version of Bonnie Tyler’s “Holding Out For A Hero” for the
closing credits of Shrek 2
26. With new confidence and determined to have complete creative control, Imogen remortgaged her flat to fund her second solo album. Working almost entirely alone, Speak
For Yourself took Imogen exactly a year to write and produce. It was released in 2005 on her
own Megaphonic label
27. An album of extreme joy, desperate sadness and a little bit of wondering what it would be like to be a stalker
28. it’s Imogen laying bare her soul over 12 tracks
29. Stunningly original and creative, incorporating everything from piano to blips and boops, carpet tubes, passing trains and a frying pan
30. a shimmering vehicle of electro and lustrous orchestra
31. the album delivered huge pop hooks, atmospheric soundscapes and lyrics to make you consider the intricacies of your own life
32. Therapy on a disc, a journal read aloud and set to music
33. this time Imogen took all she’d learnt musically and lyrically to a whole new dimension
34. Utilizing the internet to market Speak For Yourself, Imogen pioneered a new Artist/Audience relationship
35. She was one of the first artists to bring her music to a new audience via MySpace, iTunes, YouTube and her blog
36. The inclusion of sparse vocoder/harmonizer song "Hide & Seek" in the season 2 finale of hit TV show The O.C. was an another jump start for
Imogen's career
37. sending the song to #8 on the US iTunes Hot 100 Songs and to #1 on iTunes UK
38. “Hide & Seek”’s rise led to licensing deals with Sony BMG on both sides of the Atlantic, ensuring the album got the full release and promotion it deserved
39. Electrifying performances on David Letterman, Jay Leno and Carson Daly cemented Imogen’s US success. Unique sets at Sundance and Coachella, and extensive touring, established her as an unparalleled live experience
40. No two gigs are alike. Treading a fine line between chaos and brilliance, live she’s technology meets edge of the seat spontaneity in a one woman show.
41. With fairy lights, a MacBook Pro, clear Perspex piano, Keytar and a mbira, she sends shivers down the spine
42. looping sounds and hitting switches, and bringing it all together into one of the most intimate and intoxicating shows imaginable
43. New and exciting every time, she doesn’t just play music, live she IS music
44. In 2005 and 2006 Imogen became songstress of choice for US film and TV
45. “Goodnight And Go”, “Speeding Cars” and her cover of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” were all used in The O.C.
46. She Heap-ified children’s nursery rhyme "I’m A Lonely Little Petunia In An Onion
Patch" for an episode of HBO’s Six Feet Under
47. covered the Classics IV song “Spooky” for Reese Witherspoon film Just Like Heaven
48. and wrote, performed, recorded and produced “Can’t Take It In” for The Chronicles Of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe
49. From English eccentric to celebrated artist, Imogen was nominated for Best New Artist and
Best Song Written For Motion Picture for “Cant Take It In” at the 49th Grammy Awards in
50. and caused quite a stir on the red carpet when she turned up wearing a lily pond
themed dress complete with Gary The Grammy Frog
51. After touring Speak For Yourself across Europe and America, Imogen was eager to get back
to recording and start work on her third solo album, Ellipse. For inspiration, she set out on a
writing trip which took her to Maui, Tasmania, China and Japan
52. The album’s first song, “Wait It Out”, was started sitting at a piano in a house in Maui, overlooking the Pacific Ocean, in March 2007
53. When she came back to England, Imogen took on her childhood family home
54. and fittingly transformed the room she used to play in as a child into her studio
55. From the writing trip to building the studio, recording to mixing, tweaking to re-tweaking,
Imogen kept fans regularly updated on the album’s progress via Twitter, MySpace and
56. Partly out of love for her fans, partly to maintain her sanity
57. she pioneered a new kind of creative process, one that’s open, inclusive and asks fans to participate
58. From bursts of late night craziness via, to little snippets of songs in her 40+ YouTube posts
59. the always upbeat Ms Heap video-blogged the hell out the recording
60. An artist who has gone above and beyond just making an album
61. redoing, fixing, ripping apart and piecing together the picture perfect record
62. she worked herself into near madness, documenting and sharing all the tantrums
63. Amazingly accessible and down to earth for such a luminary
64. Imogen truly understands the relationship with her fans as a human one, rather than one married to business
65. She even encourages fans to be creative, writing her press biog and helping her design album artwork
66. The Twitter biography itself defines Imogen’s innovative, fresh and fun approach to everything she does
67. If the vBlogs heightened expectation, the first new track to emerge, “Not Now But Soon”,
assured fans wouldn’t be disappointed
68. First airing on hit US show Heroes, it once again confirmed her ability to transport to another level, pushing boundaries with raw beats and ethereal melodies
69. Imogen also found time during recording to remix former Sneaker Pimp Chris Corner’s IAMX single “Spit It Out”, giving it a slinky new outlook
70. and re-record “Hide& Seek” for Rupert Hine’s Songs For Tibet charity project
71. She contributed to Brian Eno’s Plague Songs album, collaborated with Nitin Sawhney on “Bring It Home”
72. played at the wedding of The O.C. creator Josh Schwartz
73. co-wrote and produced a track for Mika’s second album and donated an unfinished track, “The Song That Never Was”, to the Twitter charity event Twestival – fans donated to download Imogen’s vocals and add their own music; there are now more than 400 versions of the song
74. A multi-instrumentalist with what seems to be limitless creative ability
75. the culmination of eccentric style and a sound which is unlike anything else
76. Imogen’s an artist who isn’t afraid to experiment, either with her music or with her relationship with her fans
77. Her new album once again seduces you into a world where fantasy and reality meet in an atmospheric dream state
78. to be the musical soulmate of both Casablanca and Bladerunner
79. It’s organic electronica
80. Hauntingly beautiful computer music
81. Avant-garde. Otherworldly. Comforting. Tantalising. Heaven on a disc
