Today we will look at an inspirational video put together by Krista Nicole from pics sent in by her fans, and set to the music of her new song, "Dreams." We will also see two excellent cover versions of Britney Spears' new song, "Hold It Against Me."
But first, The News!
This week's Featured Video on our Top 100 and Top 200 Charts is a 2 minute movie depicting a pre-wedding encounter between a bride and her groom. This well acted and produced film stars Courtney Jines who played Demetra in Spy Kids 3D when she was 11. Courtney is now 19 and shows great emotional depth in this mini-movie; be sure to watch it! Check out our Top 100 and Top 200 Charts of the Most Subscribed YouTube Channels every week!
TIFFANY JO ALLEN PHOTO SHOOT: BEHIND THE SCENES. Our friend Tiffany Jo Allen has launched a new channel - TiffanyTV. Tiffany Jo had a "ton of fun" as we can see in this first video on her new channel! Check it out - click the pic to the left.
Rockin' singer / musician Jes Loren is giving away an iPod to one lucky person who promotes www.Music.JesLoren.com! Jes is one of my favorite rock chicks on YouTube and I promote her even when there's no prize to entice me. Yes, she can Rock Hard but she's versatile; she can cover Lady Gaga as well! So if you like pop tunes, hear her sing "Bad Romance" in the background of this vlog. If you're into rock originals with cool guitar parts (by her dad), then be sure to buy Jes' album, "Just Say Yes" which has 9 amazing original pop rock tunes plus the Gaga cover as well. Go to www.Music.JesLoren.com and check it out!
In December, we gave away 10 CDs by Krista Nicole to promote the interview she did with YouTubeStars. One winner was a nice German girl whose channel is Milena8112. Milena is a big fan of Krista Nicole and she also Loves Tyler Ward. On 2/11, she made her first video, a tribute to Tyler! Tyler saw it and commented, "This is amazing!!!! THANK YOU : )" Check out Milena's video for Tyler Ward - click the pic on the left.
Now, here are our Featured Videos!
A few weeks ago, Krista Nicole asked her fans to send in pictures for a fan video of Krista's original song, Dreams. Lots of her fans did just that! In fact, so many pics were sent that Krista needed to spread them out over multiple videos. Here is part 1. It will lift your spirits and put a smile on your face. Be inspired and Dream BIG!
Dreams available at iTunes.
Signed Dreams CDs.

In less than a week, Britney Spears' latest video for "Hold It Against Me" has 10 Million views! The song is pretty good and the video has the usual dance moves and special effects. But these two cover videos are also quite good! This one is by Alex Ford from the doctorford channel. Alex is a Maths teacher in the UK as well as a talented singer and musician. His version of Britney's dance tune is a dreamy soft rock interpretation, with Alex on echoed vocals, playing guitars and tapping some sort of board for percussion. I really like his version!
Alex also writes for music promotion blog/website 'Tube Idols' which is similar to what we do here at YouTubeStars. Check out the site!

Here is another excellent cover of "Hold It Against Me" by smooth singing Josh Rice from the jriceproductions channel. J Rice adds some R&B flavor as he sings while accompanied by his clone on a Yamaha keyboard. The beats come in at 1:26 and the energy builds as the song continues with danceable rhythms and awesome layered vocals. Josh had fun with this video, so have fun watching it!
Get the new J Rice album on iTunes and Amazon.
