@SaraBareilles | @ingridmusic Hi all! Before you read on, I want to remind you that my Twitter username and Instagram name have changed! Good thing is that they are both the same so they won't be hard to forget - @byingridvasquez Now ... 12.21.15 #SongBlogIV (my song of the day): "Winter Song" by Sara Bareilles ft. Ingrid Michaelson It seems like Sara Bareilles and Ingrid Michaelson's fame only lasted from 2007 - 2014 and that makes me angry. Singer songwriters are not always welcomed in mainstream music but their music hasn't really been found elsewhere either. And this 2008 Christmas collaboration? It didn't even chart in the United States. I featured it as my song of the day not only because it's Winter season, but because a collaboration between two powerhouses in the singer songwriter field deserves to be heard. Now because this song is sung by female singer songwriters I wanted to share with you some other female singer songwriters you should be listeni ...

Ariana Grande's 8 Best Covers From Before She Was A Superstar (VIDEO)
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Before she was touring with the Biebs, making hit records and hilariously singing hip-hop songs with Jimmy Fallon like it's NBD, Ariana Grande was just another girl making YouTube videos in her bedroom. Though you probably know her best for her more recent pop hits, the "Almost Is Never Enough" singer has an archive of amazing covers that we felt we needed to unearth -- from before she had a record deal. Check out our top 8 picks below for proof that the "Sam & Cat" actress was always a star in the making. 1.

BBM’s continued success is truly stunning

Something pretty strange is going on. BlackBerry is having a great week for the first time since Natasha Bedingfield topped the charts. On its third day, BBM for iPhone is clinging onto the No. 2  slot on the top free iOS app chart after rocketing to No. 1 right out of the gate. This is no trivial achievement. Nokia’s HERE maps for iPhone hit the No. 1 spot in the U.S. soon after it launched, but it had plunged to No. 27 by its third day. Morbid curiosity only takes you so far. And that is what many expected BBM to do — hit the top and drop out of the top-10 in about a day. Yet the app is showing remarkable legs considering it

Style Superstar: Katy Perry Is Minty Fresh At The Grammy Awards
MTV News - about 4 years
After all of last week's buzz concerning the bizarre, boob-obsessed dress code issued by CBS for Grammy Awards attendees, some of us were worried that the red-carpet fashions at Sunday's show would be disappointingly drab. Turns out, we didn't need to—not just because there were plenty of pretty dresses in full compliance with the cleavage-related restrictions, but also because at least one fabulous fashionista decided to stick it to the man with her "girls" on proud display. That's right: our Style Superstar this week is Katy Perry! Whose gorgeous green gown with an embellished keyhole neckline was not only a big flipped bird to the boob-o-phobes, but which stood out with retro rad-ness in a sea of floaty chiffon frocks. Katy is a pro at finding creative ways to show off her curves, and this dress is both flattering and fun; with jet-black tresses and a cocktail ring as her only accessories, she could give Cher a run for her money. Meanwhile, Natasha Bedingfield's red-carpet ...

Fred Goldring: 'Forward': A New Song and Video in Support of President Obama's Re-Election
Huffington Post - over 4 years
In 2004 when I was Chairman of Rock the Vote, I had the chance opportunity to meet and spend some quality time with then-Illinois State Senator Barack Obama, the day before he gave his now famous speech at the DNC in Boston. That meeting inspired me to do something I had never done before -- seriously support an individual political candidate. When Barack decided to run for the presidency in 2007, I had the crazy idea that maybe the right song could get his message across and actually influence people to get involved. I observed that for some strange reason, music had never been effectively used as an emotional driver to engage and inspire people in politics. Sure, there were artists regularly performing at rallies and fundraisers, but were minds really being changed? Most of the people going to these events were either big music fans there for just the music, or they were already committed and didn't need to be persuaded. Yes, Bill Clinton had adopted the Fleetwood Mac ...

Get to know Brooklyn songstress Krissy Krissy. Internet friends! (Because we're all friends here, right?) Meet Krissy Krissy. She's the baby girl out of a family of six (!) who started singing in church (PREACH! CHUUUCH!) as a little tyke. Now, the 23-year-old vocal powerhouse, who landed a featured spot on mtvU's "The Freshman," just dropped her Above All EP, featuring the debut single "Dream," and then followed it up with "Suspicious." Now that's what we call a grind. Listen to Krissy Krissy after the jump. In case you weren't sufficiently impressed, every song on Above All was cowritten by Krissy Krissy. Tracks like "Broken Glass" showcase Krissy's sultry vocals (we're feeling some Mary J. Blige soul vibes mixed with some Natasha Bedingfield flair and even a little Mary Mary gospel realness), while her scrappy "Suspicious" video proves that she go all Carrie Underwood on anyone who mistreats her.

Kate Bosworth And Jessica Alba Celebrate Fashion Week
Huffington Post - over 4 years
To quote R. Kelly's 2003 hit, "Ignition," "After the show is the after-party." While the following line doesn't exactly reflect our Fashion Week experience (we'll skip the hotel lobby, thank you), New York Fashion Week's after parties have certainly been worthy of singing about. In fact, some have been just as epic, if not more so, than the runway shows themselves. Case in point: Marchesa's spring 2013 show, which Kim Kardashian and Kanye West attended , in addition to Stacy Keibler, Michelle Trachtenberg and Tyra Banks, turned into a dinner and after-party in the same evening. But, this was on the early side, New York City was just getting started. Later in the night, we ran into Kate Bosworth at Proenza Schouler's Belvedere and Chandon-hosted after-party at Irving Plaza. Although the newly-engaged actress had already attended several shows this week including Theyskens' Theory, Altuzarra and Cushnie Et Ochs, she came out to celebrate the design duo's collection which ...

They went on to record an albums worth of material over the course of the following 2 years. As Daniel Bedingfield's career took off doors started opening for Natasha and she already had songs to demonstrate her talents. The song "The One That Got Away" written by Nathan Winkler (Co-written by Natasha Bedingfield, Steve Kipner, Andrew Frampton and Michael Tafaro) was the only song that made it onto her album "Unwritten" Bedingfield was introduced to Phonogenic founder and A&R Paul Lisberg by the artist's manager Gary Wilson. Lisberg was initially hesitant, later telling HitQuarters: "They were good but weren't right for us... " However, it was when, at a meeting together, Lisberg heard her singing ability and creative vocal ad-libbing first-hand that he became excited by Bedingfield's potential. Label interest was later confirmed when a trial studio session together with writers Steve Kipner and Andrew Frampton produced songs that were in keeping with Lisberg's vision for Phonogenic. Bedingfield signed a recording contract with BMG UK & Ireland, through its imprint Phonogenic Records, in July 2003.
    Bedingfield released her debut album, Unwritten, in 2004, which contained primarily up-tempo pop songs and was influenced by R&B music.
