While we don’t often sit and think about movie soundtracks until the Grammys and Oscars roll around, film scores are critical pieces of the cinematic puzzle.
Imagine Titanic without the driving force of Celine Dion’s iconic voice. Imagine what all of those Disney movies would be like without the songs that made up the soundtrack of your childhood. Imagine your favorite films in total musical silence.
One of the most beloved songs of all is “Over The Rainbow,” which is forever tied to the story of Dorothy’s trip down the Yellow Brick Road. Because it’s a classic, artists over the years have created their own versions of the time-honored track. Take rising musician Chase Holfelder, for example. By singing the song in a minor key, he turns Dorothy’s world into something that is at once intriguing and unsettling.
It’s pretty amazing how such a simple change forces us to see one of our favorite films in an entirely new light.
To learn more about Chase Holfelder’s music, be sure to check him out on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. If you can’t get enough of his voice, follow him on YouTube!

Adorable 12-year-old Grace VanderWaal seemed shy when she first stepped onto the audition stage for “America’s Got Talent,” and when the young lady revealed she would be performing an original song while playing the ukulele, the judges faces were instantly shrouded in doubt.
Although Grace has been writing songs since she was a toddler, this was the first time she would be performing in front of such a large crowd. As she started singing, all traces of nervousness faded away and the judges had to scrape their jaws up off the floor after hearing her voice. No wonder Howie Mandel gave her the golden buzzer!
Incredible. I’m sure Grace VanderWaal’s iconic audition will go down in reality TV history. It’s easy to say her flawless talent is what swept everyone off their feet, but honestly, it was her humility and positive outlook on life that really won the audience over.

Celebrities…they’re just like us, right? I mean, yeah, if you’re also disgustingly rich and have people who pretend to be you as their hobby or even profession…
While they may not be exactly our equals, it is nice when stars like Adele do something to surprise some of their biggest fans. When the famous British songstress got wind that some of her impersonators were getting together for a singing competition, she decided to surprise them in the most convoluted, but admittedly awesome, way possible. Just watch!
This reaction is the best.
How amazing is that?! She kept her cool for so long. Plus, you could really tell how grateful all the “Adeles” were to be in her presence.
