We all know that YouTube has its share of self-serving attention whores and obnoxious rude haters, but there are plenty of good people there too! Let's have a look at some of the good things happening on YouTube. Here is just a small sample of people helping people.
But first, The News! We've been writing about current and future YouTubeStars for Three Years now! A lot has changed. Many of the popular people from YouTube's early days aren't even on the site anymore. But there are always new and interesting people coming along to keep us intrigued and entertained. We have written about many of the up and coming musicians on YouTube, and there is a channel that has been interviewing many of the people that we have written about. I'm referring to YouTraxTV. Michael Boyce does a great job of regularly interviewing YouTube musicians and puts the resulting videos on his website, youtrax.tv. These are in depth interviews often lasting 10 minutes and more! He has interviewed people we have written about, like TiffanyJoAllen, AngelicaV1, KristaHeartzuz and SavannahSings.
YouTraxTV supports and promotes YouTube Musicians just like us. Support YouTraxTV by Subscribing to their channel!
Angelica Vasilcov, AngelicaV1 (5,270,911 Video Views), is doing very well in the MusicMogul contest! Her "Superwoman by Alicia Keys" Is in the 4 Top Rated videos. The top 4 highest rated performers get to compete on the world-famous Sunset Strip in front of a live panel of experts from all areas of the music industry, including Grammy-winning producer, Rodney "Darkchild" Jerkins. The winner of the live competition will receive a demo deal with Darkchild Productions. Register at MusicMogul and vote for Angelica! For more info, watch this video.
Celeste Kellogg, CelesteMusic5 (136,997 Video Views), is in the upcoming movie - "Much Ado About Middle School." Watch the trailer on her MySpace page. Celeste tells me, "There were two lead roles and I had one of them and their are about 6 musical numbers in the movie. I also recorded 5 songs on the soundtrack --- I had a blast --- For more information you can go to http://www.elevatingentertainment.com/. They will release updates on the movie." Now in post-production, the movie also has its own website. Looks like a pretty cool movie, congrats Celeste!
And now, watch these videos!
ShaneDawsonTV (17,746,076 Video Views), who moved up 5 positions to number 42 last week on our Top 100 Chart, has a vlog channel where he posts "behind the scenes videos and some special extras." This rising YouTubeStar is using his popularity to help other talented but lesser known YouTubers become the next YouTubeStar! Shane made this video showing some of the people he likes on YouTube, and asked for commenters to suggest their favorite lesser known YouTubers. He has received about 10 Thousand comments so far. Even better, he requested video responses, asking people to showcase their best stuff. So far, he as about 5000 video responses. Check some of them out!
