2. Jillian O (US)

Jillian O may seem like your typical 13-year-old girl – but she’s not, she actually has a voice that can touch the next generation. When you listen to her songs, you’ll notice that the catchiness of her song writing has influences from Katy Perry and she also has the vocal range of Haley Williams from Paramore. When you mix these two superstars together then you’ll discover Jillian O.

3. Lana Fame (US)

Lana Fame is a singer/songwriter who is a Houston native; she was born and raised with music playing a big part of her life. From singing in church to national talent shows to YouTube, Lana’s voice speaks for itself. Her music is definitely “timeless” – it’s something you can look back on years later and still enjoy. She wants her music to be able to be listened to by all ages. She went from the computer screens to gracing the stages of some of the hottest clubs in Houston, TX. Lana has embraced music with a very urban sound, she is a sucker for R&B and one day she wants to be one of the few artists to bring it back but in a creative way. Her inspiration comes from great entertainers like of course the late Michael Jackson, Anita Baker, Beyonce, and Brandy just to name a few. She has released two mix tapes “Love Hangover Unplugged: Vol.1” last May 2011 and just this May 2012 she released “Love Hangover Unplugged: Vol.2” – she is currently spending a lot of time in the studio working on her first album and she is also currently preparing for her first tour and writing songs from some of your favourite artists. She is grateful for all the wonderful people she has worked with and met and she continues to strive for success but at the same time reminding herself to stay humble because her gift can easily be taken away – she thanks God everyday for everything that is happening in her life right now.
