Era il 2011 quando Victoria Vox, cantautrice americana di cui abbiamo già parlato qui su YOUkulele, proponeva sul web il suo progetto: “Ogni settimana, per un anno intero, registrerò una cover sul mio ukulele!”.
Ripercorriamolo su YOUkulele! 52 cover che ispirarono un casino di persone e motivarono tanti neofiti…
http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=… Embarking on a personal challenge to learn 52 covers (one a week) for 2011.
My rules: 1) Must learn it the week of (not before or after) 2) Must be memorized and 3) Must be performed live (no overdubs).
This is the 16th one, ""Till the World Ends" is sung by Britney Spears but it is written by Kesha Sebert, Alexander Kronlund, Lukasz Gottwald, and Max Martin. You can REQUEST a tune via twitter.com/victoriavox, email, or on my facebook.com/victoriavoxlovesyou page 😉 thanks for listening 😉 xo v.v. www.victoriavox.com
