YouTube's Path To Discovery

YouTube's Path To Discovery



As many of you know, YouTube is a place that many artist or just ordinary people can display their talents for the whole world to see. Artist such as Justin Bieber, Austin Mahone, Carly Rae Jepsen, and many more have  put up one simple video on YouTube, not realizing it would change there lives forever. One of the many artist that are currently on the rise to fame is Tori Kelly. Tori has been posting videos on YouTube since she was 14. She got signed at the age of 12 but because of conflicting ideas, she was released from Geffen Records. After posting videos, she did a cover of Frank Ocean's song "Thinking About You" with her friend Angie Girl. This video received over 22 million views and now she has over a million subscribers! She later auditioned for American Idol, but
did not make it to the top 24. She released her own album with her own record label and made it to the top ten pop albums on iTunes. Finally, Tori reached her goal and got signed to Capitol Records in 2013 and now is making new music everyday!
