YouTube Music

Now I know the both of us are on YouTube about 90% of the time. While eggtart watches all things Asian, I tend to go for music covers and songs by obscure people that were played during t.v. shows. These days, I rarely even watch those shorts that WongFu and NigaHiga post, unless I'm hanging out with eggtart.

Anyways, so I was watching a bunch of videos today and thought I'd share some of my favourites with you guys ~

I found Kait Weston's videos a while back, right after I became totally obsessed with Demi Lovato's album Unbroken. It featured her singing "Skyscraper" live, in her front foyer, and honestly, her voice blew me away.

Then I went on to listen to all her other songs, and her voice is so damn strong and powerful.
Yes, that is Cookie from Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide. He grew up... Kait also has some original songs: Carry Me Home and With You.
The other guy is Eppic. IMO he's a good rapper. He's done a lot of collabs with other YouTubers.
I haven't really kept up with Jess, the girl who sings in the video, but she's an amazing singer too.

Another YouTuber I absolutely love is Tyler Ward. I learned about him through eggtart, who showed me his old collab partner, Julia Sheer, first. They no longer do collabs together, but hopefully one day they will again, 'cause they sang well together.
This first video is Tyler's collaboration with YouTuber Alex G. singing a cover of Ho Hey. They have both done original songs too. Tyler recently released a mini album, and Alex G has her original called 4am.
This next one is Julia doing a cover of Safe and Sound.
She also collabed with a number of YouTubers, such as Alex Goot and Against the Current, in this next video, which has forever prevented me from listening to the original version of the song.
Love that cover...
Against the Current's original song "Thinking" can be found here.
Lastly, you've already seen Kurt Schneider's work, in that video with Max Schneider and Victoria Justice that eggtart posted a few weeks back, but I also want to show another cover that Kurt helped produce, this time for Sam Tsui and Christina Grimmie:
One of my favourite covers, next to One More Night.

Anyways, YEAH. I just wanted to share some of my favourite YouTubers with you~ There are more, but this shall have to do...


P.S. Ignore some of the weird stuff going on with our blog. It's in the middle of a make-over xP
