YouTube Wednesday: Rebecca Shearing…the singer/songwriter who is changing the music game one cover at a time

Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘YouTube Wednesday’, we’re going to talk about a PHENOMINAL singer/songwriter who you will rebecca shearingcompletely fangirl (and fanboy) over from the moment you hear her. If you haven’t stumbled across one of Rebecca Shearing’s AMAZING covers then you have no idea how deprived your ears are. Not only can she sing and play the piano, but she also has the ability to perfectly tackle any genre of music and make it sound completely fresh and unique. So now let’s get to what y’all are waiting for, the music! Ready? Ok, let’s go!!!

 

The first video that we’re going to talk about is Rebecca’s cover of ‘Happy’ by Leona Lewis, which was uploaded on January 30th, 2010 (you can check out the video below). I thought that this was an awesome video to kick things off with, because the song is not only technically challenging but should make you experience the feels when you listen to it. Rebecca does a really good job displaying her vocal skills in this cover, and it definitely makes you eager to see what she’ll tackle next. The next video that we’re going to discuss is Rebecca’s rendition of  ‘Gangnam Style’ by PSY, which was uploaded on October 15th, 2012. When I saw this video, I was immediately intrigued, and honestly it was everything I thought it would be and so much more! Rebecca did an AMAZING job rearranging this song into a cool jazzy rendition that will give the song a really fun, fresh vibe. It’s a fun play on this viral hit, that will have you addicted to ‘Gangnam style all over again.

Next up, we have Rebecca’s cover of ‘Just Give Me a Reason’ by Pink feat. Nate Ruess, which was uploaded on March 25th, 2013. In this cover Rebecca really showed off her artistry, by fully engaging herself in the song, and bringing out the emotions that the lyrics of this song have. The fact that Rebecca was able to show that she’s an amazing storyteller in this video, only makes me more excited see what incredible original music she releases in the future. The final cover that we’re going to discuss is Rebecca’s cover of ‘Flashlight’ by Jessie J from the Pitch Perfect 2 soundtrack, which was uploaded on June 12th, 2015 (and you can check out below). This was such a breathtakingly beautiful cover, and will make you become even more obsessed with Rebecca’s channel. This video really proves that Rebecca has continued to perfect her craft, and now is not only able to sing/play the piano EXTREMELY well, but is also a true artist that will captivate your from the first not to the last, and will leave you constantly wanting more. With all the growth we’ve already seen from her, I can’t wait to see where Rebecca’s career takes her next.

YouTube Wednesday: Dallas students go viral!

Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘YouTube Wednesday’ we are going to discuss an AMAZING new video that is ALL over the internet. In just 3 days (as of January 27th, 2014), this video has already gotten 1,753,423 views on YouTube. What started off as a simple school project for A. Maceo Smith New Tech High School (a high school in Dallas, TX) students has now grown into an epic viral video. It all began when Theatre Arts Teacher Scot Pankey asked his classes to ‘let go of their fears’ (as the video’s description says) and help create this project. The video was shot and edited by students at the school, and all of the participants worked tirelessly for weeks to get the chorography just right. Once I saw this video I just knew that I had to tell y’all about it, because it is such an incredible video! Now if you want to see this awesome video (over and over again, because honestly who how can you only watch it once right?), then you check it out at the end of this post. So y’all ready to talk about it? Let’s go!

 

I would have to say that the number 1 thing that I love about this video is the effort that seemed to go into it. The choreography is really cool and fun to watch. Even though the teacher is the one in all of the shots, the students all shine just as brightly. The fact that this video was done in 1 shot completely amazes me, because can you imagine how hard it must be to get that many people to do the correct chorography simultaneously on cue (#mindblown!). Another thing that I really love about this video is that this is an AWESOME project to assign to students who want to learn about technology. It’s really cool to see a school not only promoting the arts, but doing so in such a way that will encourage other people to try a similar project. I think it’s really cool that now these students might have been exposed to how much work and fun goes into a large scale project like this, because now they might create more awesome videos for us (fingers crossed we see more dance mob videos). With so many people trying to get a video to go viral these days, it’s cool to see a bunch of really awesome, creative people get together and make a fun project…that just happens to go viral. I think Bruno Mars and Mark Ronson would be proud!
