Ashlee reviews three music videos!

Ashlee Collova

I am happy to announce that we have another New Guest Blogger, Ashlee Collova! Ashlee is from Perth in Australia and is a writer who has her own website,! She likes to interview and promote young singers on her channel and website. Check out the excellent videos on her YouTube channel! One of my favorites is this video of YouTube Rocker Jes Loren answering Ashlee's interview questions!

In her first guest blog post for us, Ashlee reviews three music videos. One is from a really popular male teen YouTuber, one is from a very young singer, and one is an original song written by a boy for his brother with Diabetes.

See what Ashlee has to say and watch the videos she discusses!

But first, The News!

This week's Featured Video on our Top 100 and Top 200 Charts is a fun music video from Kaitlyn K. This song, "Geek" is her NEW single, and it rocks! The video for it is cool and must have been fun to make. Watch Kaitlyn and her girl friends have a pillow fight at what looks like a teen sleep over. Then check out the other songs on her YouTube Channel, and also check out the rest of her new EP, "Underneath It All" on iTunes. I bought the EP and I really like it! Kaitlyn is a great pop singer and we'll probably be hearing her on the radio soon!

We love to promote YouTubers and we're not alone.
Here is another website that cares about the YouTube community and mentions both the big and little guys - YouTube Channel Reviews!
"From brand new YouTube users to the most famous YouTubers, we’ll take a look at it all and give our expert opinions as we break down everything in the YouTube community." The site is nicely origanized and has a cool slider on the Main page. See who they are writing about, at YouTube Channel Reviews!

Now, here is Ashlee's first Guest Blog post!

15-year-old to Become the Next Big Music Sensation!

I remember back last year I stumbled across 14-year-old Austin Mahone. Austin had approximately 400 subscribers. I joined the pack and subscribed. I liked what I saw in Austin. I am not a professional but what I could see is that Austin had a great singing voice and was creative with his videos. Now, it's been a year and Austin has turned 15, this young boy hailing in from Texas, has gained over 60 million views across the globe plus over 350 000 subscribers to his YouTube Channel! What a year and I have a good feeling that 2012 is going to be even better!

What makes listeners so engaged in his covers is that his voice is very soothing, he can hit the notes well. In his past three covers, he has been producing professional home made music videos filmed by supportive mum, Michele Mahone. The quality is excellent! Austin's attitude in the videos create a really good feel and buzz. He is a true performer and born to be a star. I wish Austin luck in his music career and I am excited to see where he goes with his music.

Check out his latest video below!

Sophia Grace, the oh-so Adorable Rapping Princess!

You probably have already came across the video I am about to talk, or should I say, write about! This is because the video has over 29 million views and been broadcasted on various news and radio stations, websites, newspapers and talk shows! The star of the video is now famous just by her first name "Sophia Grace". But just in case you are not familiar with the name maybe you will know who I am talking about when I state her full name "Sophia Grace Brownlee". Sophia Grace became an Internet SENSATION when her acapella cover of Nicki Minaj's hit song "Super Bass" was noticed by celebrities. Justin Bieber, Scooter Braun, Nicki Minaj, Ellen Degeneres and Diddy - just to name a few! Talented 8-year-old Sophia Grace and her younger cousin, Rosie, 5, who also stars in the viral video seen dancing besides Sophia Grace, were invited to appear on The Ellen Degeneres Show more than once! They also had the opportunity to interview their favourite celebrities on the red carpet at the American Music Awards 2011... AND were able to walk the famous red carpet themselves!!!

The video is so popular and successful for quite a few reasons. The talent in Sophia Grace is incredible considering her age. And not many young children can remember lyrics and perform that well! But it wasn't just that, the persona and attitude this young girl carries makes her so funny and cute, it turns into one of those "must watch videos". It makes you smile and will certainly brighten your day.

Take a look at it below and you will find yourself "Aww"ing and smiling! :)

Big Brother BELIEVES in Making a Difference

As a teenage girl I was searching for new Justin Bieber videos on YouTube (just like every other girl out there!) and I happened to come across a very sweet video. At just nine years old Sebastian has a very big heart and knows how to make a difference. Sebastian's younger brother Jacob who is eight was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes at just five. Kind big brother Sebastian wrote and produced a song called "Believe" for his brother to encourage him to be strong in tough times. The song is available to buy on iTunes and all the proceeds from the song will be donated to JDRF which will help find a cure for diabetes.

The music video is very creative using a mix of home videos. The beat and tune of the song is relaxing, calm and beautiful. Please help make a difference and spread Sebastian's song around. I BELIEVE that it's a wonderful thing that Sebastian is doing and I encourage everyone to help. Don't forget to buy the song on iTunes and visit his website

Hey Ashlee, thanks for your kind words about Sebastian - love from his Dad

Nice first post! I see great potential in your writing Ashlee, and I enjoyed hearing your connection to each video you chose.
