Rebecca Black is Back - My Moment

Rebecca Black My MomentBack in March of this year, a 13 year old girl from Orange County CA became an overnight sensation! For weeks, everyone had something to say about Rebecca Black and her slightly silly but curiously catchy song, "Friday" and its quirky but fairly well made music video. We wrote several articles about Rebecca Black and you can find them all here. Now, Rebecca is back with her second song, "My Moment" - just released today and already it has over 650 thousand views! I'll have a few things to say about the song and video, below.

But first, The News!

This week's Featured Video on our Top 100 and Top 200 Charts is a great music video parody set to the tune of Christina Perri's Jar Of Hearts, about the new Harry Potter movie! Recently I told you about two Harry Potter fanatics who vlog on YouTube. This Harry Potter parody video is from Kathy, featured in that post. She asked viewers to send in clips and she added them to her own scenes that relate to the new Harry Potter movie that made almost 170 million dollars ($169,189,427) opening weekend in the U.S. alone! Watch the Featured Video of Kathy singing beautifully about Harry Potter right here; click on it!

We have a NEW Featured Video every week on our YouTube Top 100 Chart. If you missed any of our Previously Featured Videos, you can still watch them here.

Check out our Top 100 and Top 200 Charts of the Most Subscribed YouTube Channels every week!

Now, watch Rebecca Black's latest video, My Moment!

Rebecca Black was just 13 when she decided to make a music video like her friend Alana Lee had just made. After getting the okay, and money ($4000) from her parents, Rebecca goes to Ark Music Factory and buys a package consisting of an original song and music video. Ark puts the video on its YouTube channel and the video gets a few thousand hits. Then Tosh.0 mentions it on TV and millions come to enjoy or hate on the video. The dislike to like ratio is about 8 to 1 but the video keeps getting views and comments.
(Read more Rebecca Black history, here.)

People want to know who Rebecca Black is, and her name becomes a the number one Trending Topic on Twitter, even ahead of the Japan natural disaster. Rebecca gets horrible hate comments but wins the friendship of Ryan Seacrest, Lady Gaga and Simon Cowell. She ends up in a starring role as herself in the hugely popular 8 minute mini-movie / music video for Katy Perry's song "Last Friday Night".

YouTube Stats from MyYTStats.com
Just today (7/18/2011), Rebecca Black has released her second song, "My Moment" - on her new YouTube channel, Rebecca. Rebecca is 14 now, she just had a birthday on June 21. She looks about the same but now we can hear her sing without the same level of autotune as on "Friday". She sings very well! Yes, there are better singers out there, but there are certainly worse ones as well. The song itself is pretty good, it is a fairly typical pop song with no huge hook but I have listened to it several times and I like it. I have already bought a copy of it on iTunes.

The song tells Rebecca's story so far. It has a little of the feel of Taylor Swift's "Mean." Some people are not encouraging at all, but Rebecca will be following her dreams.

Rebecca Black TwitterThe video begins with Rebecca Black sitting in a recording studio (see the picture above). She starts singing some ah-ah-a-ah sounds, recalling the opening moments of "Friday". The lyrics start with, "Weren't you the one who said that I would be nothing? Well I'm about to prove you wrong!" The video continues with shots of Rebecca out and about, with fans and on the roads of L.A. Other scenes show her in makeup prep and at a dance class. The middle of the video contains some nice dance scenes with Rebecca and (according to her recent tweet, seen at the left) several dancers from "So You Think You Can Dance" - the hit dance competition TV show on the Fox Broadcasting Network.

The video winds down with shots of Rebecca Black in a limo with her younger brother, her mother and others, on their way to a Premier event. We see Rebecca getting out of the limo as photographers flashes go off. She has pulled up in front of a club of some sort with her name and "My Moment" on the Marquee. Rebecca has just had some words for the haters in her lyrics - "Haters, said I'll see ya later... I'm doing big things, things you never dreamed of. I hope you are happy 'cause I'm 'bout to blow up! This is my moment, my moment! It's my time!"

The final scene shows Rebecca Black dancing in front of the club as the paparazzi take shot after shot. She is wearing a red dress which comes down to just above the knee, a black belt and black shoes. The dress is very similar to the famous white dress that Marilyn Monroe wore in "The Seven Year Itch" which sold at auction for $4.6 million on June 20th of this year. No, Rebecca's dress did not blow up, but her song, video and career just might!

Now - Watch the video!

KidStarInterviews Recommends

I get so many nice comments on my YouTube profile page! Recently, Ashlee Collova from KidStarInterviews wrote to suggest that I write about "A few talented male artists, on the run to be making it big!" - and that's just what I am going to do today!

But first, The News!

This week's Featured Video on our Top 100 and Top 200 Charts is a very cool music video of a mash-up of 3 hits - Backseat (New Boys), Till The World Ends (Britney Spears) and Where Them Girls at (David Guetta, Flo rida, Nicki Minaj). This video, with nearly 300 Thousand views, is from Cimorelli - six sisters from Northern CA, ranging in age from 11 to 20, who love to harmonize and dance together! Cimorelli's YouTube channel is cimorellitheband and it has over 237 Thousand subscribers and nearly 60 Million Total Upload Views of their 71 videos. Watch the Featured Video of the sisters right here; click on it!

We have a NEW Featured Video every week on our YouTube Top 100 Chart. If you missed any of our Previously Featured Videos, you can still watch them here.

Check out our Top 100 and Top 200 Charts of the Most Subscribed YouTube Channels every week!

Ben Going (Boh3m3) has been speaking his mind in vlogs since the early days of YouTube. People appreciate his insight and comedy, and even when he left the tube for a long while, the core audience is still enjoying Boh3m3's sometimes outrageous, lightly edited, straight from the heart videos. Ben was an original YouTubeStar, coming in at number 9 on September 11, 2006's Top 100 chart (with 10,086 subs - the 9th person to ever have more then 10,000 subs!), and we're glad he is still giving us a piece of his mind! Watch his monologue about turning 26, click the video (if you don't mind a little adult language).

On June 14th, I told you about the hilarious eHarmony Video Bio video that was going viral. With 11.5 Million views, it wasn't long before the parodies would start. The best of the bunch is from Schmoyoho who have made a career out of autotuning the news. Watch this amazing "songified" version of the cat lady's dating video, just click the video and enjoy!

Now, enjoy these artists suggested by KidStarInterviews!

I first became aware of the KidStarInterviews YouTube channel when I saw a tweet from a YouTube pop / rock musician who I REALLY Love, Jes Loren! Jes, who writes original catchy pop rock tunes and has a band that includes her dad on guitar, was interviewed by KidStarInterviews in this video. The lighting is low, but if you watch full screen and turn down the lights in your room, its much better! In any case, the questions are great and Jes gives interesting answers.

Ashlee Collova runs KidStarInterviews and is a teen from Perth, Australia. She has two other videos on her channel - an interview with child actor / singer Anthony Thorsen, and an interview with Australian musician David Campbell. Check out the KidStarInterviews website!

Last week, Ashlee left this comment on my YouTube profile.

Sounded like a good idea to me! So here's one video from each of the 5 people Ashlee mentioned.

MattyB is an 8 year old who raps! With stats like this - over 266 thousand subs and over 61 million Total Upload Views - MattyBRaps must be talented, right? Yes he is! Check out this brand new video in which MattyB nicely covers "Ice Ice Baby", originally by Vanilla Ice - and WITH Vanilla Ice right there with him, singing and dancing, in This Video!

Jack Vidgen is a 14 year old singer from down under! He was on Australia's Got Talent and has been singing since he was 3 years old. Jack just started his YouTube channel a month ago. Watch this interview where he is asked to sing the next line in several popular tunes, without musical accompanyment. He sounds great!

Austin Mahone is a 15 year old singer from Texas who does a great job of covering Justin Bieber and other pop singers! He has over 87 thousand subs and over 10 million Total Upload Views on his YouTube channel. Justin sings very well and he plays guitar too. Here is his cover of the Bieber mega-hit, "Baby"!

Carson Lueders is a 9 year old singer who also plays guitar and has 3 original Country songs! One of his originals, Big Mouth Bass, won the Country Showdown national songwriting contest in 2010. Here, we will watch Carson (jdlueders) do a great job covering Cody Simpson's "iYiYi". Cody himself commented, "This is incredible Carson! You are truly talented keep it up bro youll go far!" So true!

Ronan Parke is a 12 year old singer from the UK who was runner up on Britian's Got Talent! He has such a strong voice that Simon Cowell just signed him to his Syco record label to compete with Justin Bieber. This young man has a great future in the music business! Watch all 20+ videos on his RonanParkeMusic YouTube channel. Click Here to see Ronan sing Kelly Clarkson's "Because Of You" at the Britian's Got Talent Final! (Embedding disabled by request)
