My Youtube Obsession
Things have finally quieted around a bit around here. For the past month I have been so busy with family obligations including having ALL of my family over at my house at the same time. In case you don’t know that includes my 2 parents, my brother, my sister and her husband, and my oldest sister, her husband, and 4 kids. Also 2 of my cousins and grandfather wanted to join in on the fun.
My house isn’t that big…and for awhile it was like a zoo! But fun….and I definitely miss them. Now they have all left and it’s just me and boyrobot. And we have been slowly cleaning the house ever since ha ha. Now that our weekends have returned to normal, I finally had some time to have a friend come over that I hadn’t seen in quite awhile! It was so great to catch up and during our chats, I discovered another person that was into Youtube videos. Well not as much as me but I introduced her to a few more artists she wasn’t aware of. :)
I thought it was high time that I talk about my little youtube obsession. Well it is one I share with boyrobot, in fact I believe he got me into it. We can spend hours on youtube looking up cover songs and it has led us to many really cool artists! Here are some of our faves:
There are some non-professional ones. They aren’t the best singers but they do fun covers and have great personalities and I am just hooked on them as a person!
Cathy Nguyen – She has done a collaboration with pretty much everyone on this list
Victor Kim – you might recognize him from America’s Best Dance Crew in Quest Crew. He is also my youtube internet crush! ha ha.
elshaynez – this kid is one of my first youtube obsessions. His covers of Never Shout Never are great.
Here are some semi-pro/pro singers that definitely have some chops!
andrew garcia – all of you American Idol fans might recognize him…well he started out on youtube and is still going at it! His raspy voice is so good
kina grannis – one of the most famous youtube stars. we actually paid to see her in concert and IT WAS SO GOOD! she is so adorable in person too!!
goot – i love his covers and his name. his videos are really nice looking too.
legaci – this group’s cover of jb’s baby got so big that justin bieber himself invited them to go on tour with him! they are like an asian boyz 2 men….really talented!
From these videos and artists, it has led us to other types of videos (apparently all these youtube stars are friends and appear in each other’s videos) so I’ve discovered some humor videos:
Kevjumba – you might think these are funnier if you are asian….but the videos with his dad are so hilarious!
and Wong Fu videos
and not so humorous videos (but so good!):
