I was unaware of the singing talents of Priscilla Renea until the day she performed at the W Atlanta – Midtown Hotel, for the Blogalicious Convention in Atlanta, Georgia. Thankfully, Mignon Renee, who blogs at Intellectual Soul ,was seated near me. She explained a bit more about this young artist who rose to fame with YouTube videos of herself singing and playing guitar. I was intrigued, then delighted, when I heard her sing Dollhouse and Worker Bee.
I did some research when I arrived back in New York and below is what I discovered.
- Priscilla Renea began posting YouTube videos of herself in 2007.
- Her performances led to her being featured on the MTV show Say What? Karaoke.
- She now works with Capital Records.
- Her first album, called Jukebox, will be released on December 1, 2009.
Below is a short clip of Priscilla Renea singing “Worker Bee”. Enjoy!
