Artists in singing and acting all have one goal, that is to be famous. Many people want to be like them, therefore we have competitions such as American Idol, Malaysian Idol, One in a Million, Star Idol, and many more that showcase people's talent. There are people who make it without all those and they have done well. I have two person in mind, they are Colbie Caillat and Marie Digby.
Colbie made it big with posting her song on MySpace and Marie did it by singing an acoustic version of umbrella and posting it on Youtube. Now you can hear their songs on our local radio stations and they really have talent. What they have done that is smart is utilising technology. Posting on the internet is a great way to share your music, many people are able to access it. Because it is good, people start passing it around, and it reaches people who are interested in producing records for them.
For them to make it big, all they needed was to market their talent and the internet did it well for them. It is something they tried and it was worth the shot, now their beautiful voices can be heard. Below is the song Bubbly from Colbie:
The lyrics are good, she wrote this song herself (I think, that's what I heard :P)
Below is Marie Digby's version of Umbrella:
Hope you enjoy their music as much as I do
