These past few months, KL has been privileged to have many talented people especially, YouTube sensations. Last year KL saw the appearance of AJ Rafael, Clara C and the Jayeselee twins.
Early this month, I was so happy to meet another person, she is one the earliest singer songwriters that I have been following on YouTube. It is non other, the amazing and talented Kina Grannis. According to Wiki :
“Kina Kasuya Grannis (born August 4, 1985) is a guitarist and singer-songwriter from California. She is half Japanese and half English, Irish, French, Scottish, Dutch and German. In 2006, Grannis recorded and self-released two more albums, One More in the Attic and In Memory of the Singing Bridge. In early 2007, she recorded “Ours to Keep” written by Rachael Lawrence and Deborah Ellen. This song would be featured regularly on General Hospital and was in an episode of the ABC Family’s mini-series Samurai Girl in September 2008.
On November 14, 2007, she created her YouTube account and began posting videos of her songs online. Her first video, “Message From Your Heart,” was entered into Doritos Crash the Super Bowl contest. The contest, which she won, landed her a contract with Interscope Records. Her YouTube videos have received more than 77 million views and have propelled her to become one of YouTube’s most popular personalities “
Some of her well known hits are “Valentine”, “In Your Arms”, “The Way You Are” and many amazing covers by artists. She was even featured on the Ellen show for her video that featured Jelly Beans.
Anyway here are some of the shots I took of her when she was performing live at Wisma Bentley auditorium.
I am also very thankful to Soulmanna Live for giving me the opportunity to be the official photographer for this concert.
