Outen’s soulful and seemingly effortless vocals, over the acoustic piano melody, shows off her remarkable talent in the simple and sincere music video for her cover.
According to radio.disney.go.com, the 19-year-old singer has already performed the National Anthem at several sporting events for teams including the LA Dodgers, Anaheim Angels, Oakland Raiders and Seattle Mariners — among others.
Radio Disney also reported that the YouTube star made it to the finals of the TV show “America’s Best New Talent” when she was just 12 years old.
Though Outen continues to put out cover songs as well as original music, the rising star has been singing on YouTube since March 2007. MTV.com reported that soon after her debut on YouTube, Levosia Entertainment signed Outen.
According to Outen’s official website, the singer put out three new singles on Radio Disney in 2009 and 2010, titled “If You Only Knew,” “Fighting For My Life” and “Be Original.”
Outen currently has 102,385 views on her acoustic piano cover of “You and I.” Check out her YouTube channel here.
