Very few people know this about me, but I had a very short-lived singing stint. For about one year in high school, I sang everyday and did karaoke with friends almost every weekend. I attributed that to my muscular thoracic diaphragm achieved through years of playing the flute. How do I sound now? Well, now that’s just a cruel question, so I will not be going into detail about that.
Since its inception, YouTube has launched the music, film, and entertainment careers of a plethora of its users. All was great until the infamous accidental viral videos of Justin Bieber that skyrocketed the career of one sexually ambiguous teen. Now, when I utter the words “YouTube artist” or “singers who got their start on YouTube”, the immediate response I get is “oh, you mean like Justin Bieber?”
No. Not like Justin Bieber. Not even a little bit. Not at all.
I’ve stumbled upon numerous YouTube cover artists, and found that these 10 deserve some recognition. My 3 favorites are among them, but in order to not mislead the witness, I’ll let you watch and decide if they deserve a little fame. Their videos have at least 1 million views and some inching toward the 10 million mark. They’re not in any particular order at all. Leave a comment below if you think I missed anybody.
