In Glendale, Calif. today, The Grove shopping center was alive with the sound of YouTube music as three of YouTube’s most prominent musical performers competed in a YouTube music challenge on the entertainment television show “Extra.” Performers Alyssa Bernal, Kurt Hugo Schneider and Sam Tsui shared with “Extra’s” host Maria Menounos how YouTube has changed their lives and allowed them to build a musical career without the involvement of a major record company (quite a cheerful talk compared to Jenna Marble’s disaster of an interview on GMA).
For the YouTube music challenge following the interview, the three performed original songs from their channels in front of a live audience. Alyssa Bernal performed the song “Falling for Love” alongside fellow YouTube musician AJ Rafael, while Kurt and Sam performed “Me Without You,” a song from Sam’s debut album “Make It Up.” “Extra” has uploaded videos of each performance onto their YouTube channel and are asking fans to vote for their favorite video. So show your favorite YouTuber some love today, and with you votes lead them to a YouTube music challenge victory.
