It's not just non-native speakers doing this. When I first heard "Unwritten", I thought Natasha Beddingfield was african-american, presumably from the NYC area.

Why does she sing like that? As others have said, I think it's all in the influences. It might be that she grew up listening to Hip-Hop/RnB...

One of the guys with me explained how most of the good Filipino Bands all sounded like the album, with most of the singers not speaking English or very poor English at best. They were great mimickers. I mean even between Beatles songs kind of stuff you could tell it was John or Paul sound wise. I hung all night just to listen to them. I do believe they sounded better live than the real thing...LOL
I once met a guy doing an incredible Elton John impersonation in a spanish TV show. He was singing like the man himself (like if the voice was straight off the record) but he didn't have a clue on what he was singing as he didn't speak a word of English...
