I don’t go to a lot of concerts (living on a college student budget here), but when I saw Kina Grannis was coming to town, I had to go see her! I have two stipulations when attending concerts: 1) I must really, really like the artist and 2) I need to know several songs so at the least, I can sing along to what little lyrics I know. I’ve been listening to Kina Grannis since high school, so I knew her music well enough to enjoy a live concert. After seeing this Youtube star for so long on my computer screen, it was nice to at last, see her in person 🙂
Her husband, Imaginary Future, opened for her:
His songs were SUPER mellow. And he had a smooth, soothing voice. Now I can understand how people listen to his music while studying or falling asleep, haha.
Finally, the little lady herself:
I learned that she won a contest where her original song, Message From Your Heart was played during the 2008 Superbowl. That was also when/how she started her Youtube channel, so that people could vote for her to win! From Youtube artist to performing worldwide tours. Dang Kina.
I think I have a new #wcw. Like, I just want us to meet and be friends…T_T
It was a solid performance – she was on pitch (from what I could tell) and sounded just like she did on the album. I respect artists who can really sing (without autotune, without background vocals, etc.) – after all, isn’t that what singers are supposed to do?! Listen for yourself:
