Zee Avi has an interesting story. Born in Malay, Borneo, Zee always felt like she had a musical side to her. One day she started recording songs using her webcam and uploading them up to YouTube — really just for a friend to hear what she was up to. She did covers and original pieces, and over time had a small gathering of followers for her channel. She decided to make one final recording and that was going to be it. But, according to her bio, fate had other plans because “by the time she checked her e-mail Avi had almost 3,000 messages including a slew of label offers.”
(I think I like that song because it is a pop song that mentions Kierkegaard. I am a softy for philosophers!)
The power of the humble webcam is simply inspiring!
