Reaching an incredible 88 countries, YouTube has provided performance artists, musicians, and comedians with the ability to reach viewers around the globe. Backed by the incredible power of today’s internet-based society, a single video gone viral can kickstart a successful career.
However, while the internet provides us with amazing opportunities, there are a vast number of users uploading videos on a regular basis can make it hard to get noticed. You need to do something that will set you apart in some way. Unfortunately, sometimes sheer talent just isn’t enough.
This is where Argentinian singer Yanina Chiesa has figured it out. The beautiful young singer has an amazing voice, but let’s be honest – there are thousands of talented singers on YouTube. Chiesa, however, has found her own unique niche. She doesn’t write her own music or play an instrument, in fact, all of her performances, one could argue, are merely covers of current pop music. Yet, with 740,000 subscribers on YouTube, and a single video hitting over 30 million views, you can’t argue that she’s got something amazing to offer. What’s her secret?
When Chiesa sings her covers, she does so while impersonating the original singer. Even more impressive, she does it in a way that makes it hard, at times, to remember who it is you’re listening to! Now, it would be impressive if she pulled this off with one or two singers, but she takes it even further. In the aforementioned viral video, Chiesa is able to impersonate 15 different famous singers, all with an incredible degree of accuracy!
Chiesa has fans around the globe, with social media providing the perfect opportunity for her to stay connected and share her gift. In addition to her incredible following on YouTube, she also has 103,000 followers on Instagram and over 97,000 followers on her Facebook fan page. She covers everyone from Celine Dion to Britney Spears, Adele to Avril Lavigne.
