    If you missed Tori Kelly and James Bay’s performance at the Grammy’s, do yourself a favor and check it out. This was their first ever Grammy performance and it did not disappoint. Both Kelly and Bay were individually nominated in the best new artist category.

    Best “new” artist is a fairly inaccurate term. These artists have been grooming their talents for many many years long before they are given the title of best new artist.

    Tori Kelly built a massive YouTube following with 8 years of hard work, over a million followers. James Bay, a British singer/songwriter, caught the attention of a Republic Records A&R after a fan uploaded a video to YouTube of him performing at an open mic in London, and within a week he was signed to the label.

    Every day thousands of hopeful young musicians are following in Kelly and Bays’ footsteps posting videos of themselves singing their hearts out. They are on YouTube, Instagram, Snapchat, and Periscope; using every platform possible in hopes that maybe one day they too can be considered the best new artist.

    This year’s Grammy went to Meaghan Trainor who became most popular for her song “All about That Bass” but Bay and Kelly’s live performance definitely left its mark. We’re looking forward to great things from these two talented artists.

    The Show Must Go On…

    It’s every singers’ worst nightmare. You’ve spent weeks and weeks preparing, invested loads of money and creative energy, and then some one else drops the ball. Whether it’s a dead microphone, an out of tune guitar, or your accompaniment track begins to skip around, every performer has had to face some form of unexpected difficulty live…. in front of an nature audience.

    Two of the biggest names in popular music today, Adele and Justin Beiber, have been receiving criticism for their Grammy performances last night. They were both enduring sound difficulties during their performances. What a nerve wrecking experience that must have been for them.

    Heres the beautiful part about these two professionals, they kept going and kept smiling. Sometimes that’s the best strategy. Mistakes will happen, some things are beyond our control no matter how prepared we may be. The show must go on and one bad performance should never define an artist. We have to get back up, punch a pillow if necessary, and go for it again. Both Justin and Adele handled their experience with class. There’s a good lesson there for us all.
