Guest blogger Ashlee Collova is back at YouTubeStars with her second guest blog! Ashlee is from Perth in Australia and is a writer who has her own website, TheHollywoodGoss.com. 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 second guest blog post for us, Ashlee reviews two music videos from a popular male teen YouTuber and from singing sisters! She also tells us the story of Talia Joy.
See what Ashlee has to say and watch the videos she discusses!
1. Daniel J: The Next Jesse McCartney
Everyone has been talking about the brand new hit song "We Can't Stop" by former Disney star Miley Cyrus. The catchy pop song has everyone on their feet singing, dancing and having a blast! I'm quite a big fan of the tune myself and I came across a talented sixteen year old boy singing a cover of it on his YouTube channel. His name is Daniel J and he lives in the United Kingdom. When I first saw his video he reminded me of a young Jesse McCartney. Daniel J has really smooth vocals and a fun, cheeky personality in his video that will certainly have teen girls going crazy!
Check out Daniel J's cover below and let me know what you think! Do YOU think he is a Jesse McCartney in the making?!
2. Cimorelli: Six Sisters Taking Over America
Christina, Katherine, Lisa, Amy, Lauren AND Dani are known as the six sisters who make up the famous family band Cimorelli. The girls first found fame in September in 2008, when they uploaded their first video on YouTube. Since then, they have continued uploading YouTube videos including covers and originals. They have collaborated with other music stars such as Ryan Beatty and MattyB. Their online success and impressive musical talents led to signing a record deal with Universal Island Records and Universal Republic! The humble girl group recently released their new single Made in America - which is also the name of their EP available now!
Check out Cimorelli below in their latest music video performing Made in America!
3. Talia Joy: World Mourns The Loss of 13-Year-Old Makeup Artist Talia Joy
This post isn't about a singer but it is about a beautiful 13-year-old makeup artist who found fame and thousands of admiring fans on YouTube. Talia Joy Castellano was diagnosed with cancer at the age of six years old and sadly passed away at the age of 13 years old, on July 16th 2013. Talia had a great love for fashion and makeup. She started posting makeup tutorials online in August of 2011. Since posting her informative and fun tutorials she has appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, been a CoverGirl and interviewed celebrities! Talia has raised awareness for childhood cancer too. Her courage and gorgeous persona inspires millions around the world to never be afraid to be yourself, love what you do and appreciate life! Talia's passing has broken hearts all around the world. Below is a YouTube video of Talia's in her most popular video. The second video is Talia's older sister talking about the loss of her sister and how we can all help to make Talia's dreams come true. Talia's bright legacy will continue to shine on forever and she will continue to make a difference.
girl! You can tell from her personality too, that she had fun doing her videos.
I also watched her video, where she met Ellen DeGeneres. Watching Talia's reaction made me smile.
She was such an inspiration to so many people.
R.I.P Talia, and know you will never be forgotten!
But, I almost didn't watch, Made in America, because the way it started! Who wants to watch a video being made while trying on clothes and making a meal?
However, I did watch the whole video, and it turned out to be a little better than I anticipated! It showed the types of fun that people have, with family and friends. Everyone in the video was having fun.
