If she's still a teenager she has time to develop her vibrato. Any
female singer who avoids sounding like Mariah Carey et al. will get my
approval. You have to /feel/ vibrato - My favourite vibratos are Bob
Marley and Elizabeth Frazer (Cocteau Twins). It is a technique for
extending power and note duration without going badly out of tune, so
part of it is ear-training, to know when your intonation is slipping and
introduce an appropriate amount according to the feeling of the song.

As I said in my previous post. I like the unaffected style of the
performance. If she is singing slightly flat, it may be that she simply
needs a bit of a confidence boost. Pitching is 90% confidence in my
experience. There is also a greater acceptable pitch margin for lead
vocals if no-one has to harmonise with them. Some of my favourite
singers are actually quite slack in this department.
