Covers of Rehab by Amy Winehouse
I really like the song "Rehab" by Amy Winehouse. It has a groovy 60s soul sound. Several YouTubers have done excellent covers of the song. Last month, we wrote about about the great job DanielleHatfield did with her cover of this cool tune. Now, here are three other nice versions of this hit by Amy Winehouse. I won't comment on each one individually; I love them all! Each singer does a great job and adds some of her own style. Check them out!
If you want to watch the original video, with 3 million video views, its here.

Taylor Sumner is a 13 year old girl who loves to sing and write her own music. All I can say is, "Wow!" 13 years old and you can see and hear the passion in this girl. This is a video of her singing an original song called Pointless that she wrote and plays the guitar in. This is an adorable music video made by Taylor that you have just got to see... ( Did I say she was 13? I mean wow really now 13 and she sings, writes her own songs and plays the guitar "WOW!" )

I will not sit here waiting
I refuse to be patient
I will not let you waste my time
I won't try to make it faster
I won't rush what comes after
I won't sit around
boy get in line
We've been down this road
and nothing seems to change
but I won't be left alone
won't be left in the rain
waiting for you is like
waiting for the sun to die
waiting for the ocean to dry
waiting for a car that ran out of gas to drive in to sight
waiting for the moon to fade
waiting for a rock to change
it's pointless, a waste of time
I know there is better
better than waiting for never
I won't stay here forever
I will move on
I won't sit around
won't let you bring me down
won't be pushed to the ground
said I won't sit around
won't let you bring me down
won't be pushed to the ground oh no
Heidi is a young 25 year old Australian woman from the city of Gold Coast. Heidi is here in this amazing YouTube video singing her original song called Here I come. What a clear and beautiful voice this woman has. "Amazing!" I had to subscribe as soon as I heard this. There is a perfect balance of harmony and the music has such a calming beauty, I would call it enchanting. Come and see what I mean; you wont be disappointed!

This is an original song i wrote just the other week.
You know when you cut me in half, Praise and worship music is my Heart.
I realize this might not suit everybody's taste but it's what i live for and is very important to me.
I thought i'd share it with you.
And you never know, it might just help somebody :-)
Here are the lyrics for the people who want them:
Jesus here i come
humbly at your throne
My heart will sing your song
With my praise I lift you up
My hope is you alone
Though i'm weary, hear my call
For this is all i know
When i'm weak, you make me strong
I cry holy, holy is your name
And forever to be praised
This is an original song called My Constant sung and written by YouTube user bri3jet. An amazing sound with the cross between Christian-R&B and soul. She has a powerful and a breathy voice that goes wonderfully with this song. It amazes me everyday, the talent and people you can find on YouTube. You have got to hear this girl's song that leaves you with a smile and a peaceful feeling. Watch, you'll see what I mean.

"My Constant" is a song I wrote while going through some challenges and major changes in my life. Family, friends, boyfriends/girlfriends, jobs, favorite musicians, favorite bands, who you hang out with, what school you go to, where you live...people change, things change. I realized God was the only constant in my life and remained the same God from the day I was born. My style of music might change, so might the clothes I wear and what I sound like, but who my heart depends on never will.
"Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever."
In a world full of changes
as my world rearranges I
I get lost, sometimes I get scared.
But I know that You're faithful
and I know that You're able to
conquer my fears and restore my soul
And when my world falls
I hear You call, You tell me I'm not alone.
When all else fails Your love prevails
Lord I'm holding on.
Teach me to trust in the things I can't see
All that I am Lord I fall at Your feet
I'd be naive to think I could go on without You.
This world and its pleasures will soon fade away
You O my God O my Lord You remain
You stay the same yesterday, my constant for always
When I walk through the darkness
and I feel so deserted I
remember Your word, remember Your suffering
Though I don't understand it, Lord I'll trust Your direction,
depend on Your word and lean on Your promises yea, yea
When everything in this life has let me down
You lift my head when I fall to the ground.
Lord I know I can't trust anything in this world
I'll trust in You and I'll stand on Your word cuz it's perfect.
Lord Your ways are perfect.
Jenny Lane is an amzing talent from Amsterdam. Jenny's love for music, singing, dancing and the need to be creative shows in this music video called Say Say Say that she Co-Produced and wrote. This is a great video, so much fun to watch and I think worthy of MTV right now, as is. She is having a blast doing this and it shows. You can see the work that went into making this. I loved it so much, I added it to my Favorites as soon as it was over. I have to say Jenny Lane just made herself a new fan here. You have got to watch; check this girl out!

This lively 19 year old girl made a video of her own for the song Handlebars. I have to be honest, I have never heard of this song before and its not something I think I would listen to on my own. But she is just so cute, using her talent of being silly and fun to make people laugh and have a good time. What more could you ask for? Okay, are you ready to smile? Come and have a look at this!

Emily is 17 years old and from Hertfordshire in the UK. She has been dancing from the age of 3 and singing since the age of 11, and it shows. In this video Emily is singing "There's a Fine Fine Line" from "Avenue Q." I love when a person has so much passion for what they are doing that it shows in their actions and voice. What a beautiful, powerful and grown up voice this girl has. To see someone so young have so much passion in something is like a breath of fresh air to me. To have a talent and want to show it to people is amazing but what really gets me is not everyone has the strength to get up there and show it. I say Bravo, Emily! Don't miss out on this one; watch her sing now.

This is my version of Fine Fine Line. I'm not trying to impersonate the singer in the show and have deliberately toned down the accent. However, I hope you enjoy it.

Lucie Jones on X Factor Looks Like Kristen Stewart?
So I'm looking through recent tweets about Twilight and I find one about Lucie Jones, an 18 year old girl from Wales who is doing well in the X Factor competition. X Factor is similar to American Idol, America's Got Talent and Britian's Got Talent. It even has Simon Cowell as one of the judges. Lucie just sang "I Will Always Love You" originally done by Whitney Houston, a few days ago on the show. Several people on TwitterTwilight.com are saying that Lucie looks a lot like Kristen Stewart who plays Bella Swan in the Twilight movies! I tend to agree, she does look a little like Kristen, mainly from the side angle views in the video.
Check out Lucie doing an amazing job with "one of the hardest songs in the world to sing," and see if you think she looks anything like Kristen. Or maybe you think she looks like a young Ann Margaret, some have said that too! In any case, she sings great, enjoy!

You don't have to adore pugs to get a kick out of this ( but I think it would help! ) I loved this video. Perfect and you can tell the owner has a great imagination and love for this little guy. This was so cute and funny I had to subscribe just to see what he was going to do next with this awesome acting pup! Come on and see what I mean.

Julie ( Aka Julieofsburbia ) Is an adorable 16 year old Danish girl who talks about everything. She has an adorable accent that makes the videos more appealing to me. ( I just think it’s so cute. ) She talks about anything and everything and I don't know about you but that is just refreshing to me. She talks to the camera as if she is hanging out with an old friend. Cute, and something to pass time so go check out this little Cutie.

Ok this is great for a laugh. This is the Anti-lullaby. He plays the ukulele and sings his own song called "A Better Version of You." I have to say I LOVED IT. The ukulele is a little loud and it’s hard to hear the words so pay close attention because it’s really fun and you don't want to miss a thing. Come on now, go hear for yourself!

This song is the "anti-lullaby." Parents use it to wake their children up in the middle of the night. Embrace it
Ok this one is for the photographers out there. (And well anyone really who just loves or enjoys beautiful outdoor pictures!) Theses pictures were all taken by Andy himself. He has an amazing eye for color and light. The images seem to jump at you and I found myself putting the video on pause more than once to see some of these perfect nature pictures as close as I could. Go check out this video if you love pictures of nature. You won’t be sorry!

A photo video.
All photos were taken, by myself, in Brede High Woods, Sussex. Approx 10 miles from where i live: http://bit.ly/T7tAT
The soundtrack is provided by the birdsong in the woods. Recorded on my iPhone.
You may need the volume turned up, for the best effect.
This video looks pretty good in full screen mode too.
For a bit more info on the woods, check out this video:
The appeal was successful btw :)
Perfect, you may not understand this video, so just go here to watch where he got it from: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=68Yb_2z7TeY He did this so well. Now that suit up day has past, I wonder how many people do you think really did this? Looked like fun; had I know about this, maybe .... maybe I would have done it too. What do you think?

This adorable young man's name is Dan. He wrote, sings and plays this song called "Serenade City." You can tell when this kid gets older he is going to really have it all going on. Practice makes perfect and for someone so young to write, sing and play? “WOW,” all I can say is, you go boy! I look forward to seeing what this kid can do when he gets older. Go see what I mean!
