He’s actually a pharmacist who a little over a year ago decided to share his love for music with the world by uploading performances on Youtube. With a screenname of “Singindork888,” he never imagined his videos would attract a following of internet viewers. Although he’ll be keeping his day job for a long time to come, he remains inspired to continue sharing his music online and developing as a singer songwriter.

  1. Come on people Samantha is obviously the best one on here why isn’t she in the lead. She deserves to win. Samantha all the way!!!

  2. Samantha is the best no one else up here blows her out the wind she the only one that can blow and sing like there is no tomorrow you better do it samantha I’m supporting you!!!!!!!!

  3. Wow, singing dork needs to grow up a bit and realize that he’s not the best one out there. I hope whoever is in charge of this will remove singing dork from the competition.

  4. Singing Dork,
    I’m not sure if you’re the one doing the hacking, but if you are, grow a pair. You don’t deserve the title of musician if you have to hack you’re way to the top. I listened to your video. You are good. But this has to stop.

  5. I’d like to echo my concerns about Singing Dork. Please take him off the pole. The talented artists who have gotten legitimate votes deserve their credit.

  6. I agree Singing Dork is hacking your site almost every single one his votes came in two batches which took the site down. If you look at the vote logs you will clearly see he is cheating and using a script to do his voting.

  7. Please take Singing Dork off this poll! Your site just got hacked again and he got another 9,000 votes – this is the second time it’s happened!!
