Today (August 25th) is an important day for Esmée and for us because 5 years ago on this day she posted her very first youtube cover with her sister’s webcam. Like every year (2010, 2009) we like to celebrate it with a special update.
We are so happy and proud we are following Esmée since her very first videos and we can not believe it’s been 5 years already. Esmée came a far way: posting covers at youtube, being discovered by Justin Timberlake and she was the first artist who signed to his label Tenmann Records, appearing on Oprah, releasing her debut album “Outta Here“, collaboration with artist like Chipmunk, Stanfour and Aggro Santos and now working on her second album “Screaming Out Loud“. We also think she grew vocally just like her performance and as an artist and we can not wait to hear her second album!
We would like to give you guys an overview of the best covers (in our opinion) from the last 5 years, be sure to comment your own! You can watch our favorites inside/after the jump.
