MUSIC MONDAY: I Have Nothing by Ariana Grande

I  have gone mainstream.  Hahaha.  But seriously, have you heard this cover?

I have to admit, I’ve been losing some faith in today’s music.  They all seem too pop for me.  There’s something about being famous online first before being signed or distributed that bothers me.  Not to mention, the oversexualization.  I mean, come on.  Cleavage everywhere?

Then this girl, with the high pony, forever tanga, sweetheart neckline, cleavage everywhere, PDA for all time… sits atop a grand piano and sings with David Foster.

I was just blown away.  Maybe I’m not giving the newbies more credit, because this girl can sing.  I still prefer Charice’s cover, but this one is not bad at all.  Nowhere near the sphere of being bad.

Of course I will never forget the sex that was Bang Bang, but really.  This girl can sing.

MUSIC MONDAY: Lennon and Maisy at the Grand Ole Opry

They’re not new in the music scene, but who in their right mind could forget these sisters?

Lennon and Maisy Stella

They first rose to fame with that Call Your Girlfriend cover.  Now, they’re all grown up and starring in Nashville.  Because you know, skillz.

LISTEN: Kiesza’s Hozier

When Hozier performed this song at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, I knew I loved the song.  For a while, it was quite stuck in my head and it bothered Le Beau quite a lot especially I never bothered to look up the lyrics.

Then there’s Kiesza’s What Is Love.  That voice is truly divine.

So imagine my joy when the two collided.

Ah, eargasm. <3

Falling in love with Lennon and Maisy

It was a pretty rough day at work when a coworker suggested that I peek into the adorkable world of Lennon and Maisy.  If you haven’t seen their video below, you should click play now:

They’re so cute!  It absolutely prompted me to look into more of their work, and what blew my mind were their ages:  Lennon is 12, and Maisy, 8.

I rapidly viewed all of their videos and though this rendition of Jason Mraz’s I Won’t Give Up is already a perfect accompaniment to an onsite wedding video:

It was Maisy’s growling rendition of Missy Higgins’ Secret that sent chills up and down my spine.

Who wouldn’t fall in love with these two?!  They even made a thank you video!  Look out for the second “we”!

They’re going to guest star on a TV show called Nashville.  I don’t really watch that one, but I think I will have to download that particular episode just to see these two.

Subscribe to their YouTube channel here, follow them on Twitter, and like their Facebook page.

Yeah yeah, I did all three.  Hahahah.

Kitchen and dancing

Adah and I danced to this as I prepare dinner with her watch her cook my our dinner.

Tell me that did not get you dancing and I will call you a LIAR!!!

But if you want a more mellow version, here’s something that you can easily fall in love with.

But then I’m sure this meant to us more than it did/will to you. :)

Get dancing!
