Lamont Coleman (May 30, 1974 – February 15, 1999), also known by his stage name Big L, was an American rapper who made significant contributions to the New York City music scene in the 1990s as a member of the hip hop collective D.I.T.C. He was shot and killed in February 1999 before releasing his second album.
So this is a bit random, but a good friend of mine made a video of herself singing(finally, it took a lot of convincing). She's never had any kind of singing lessons or tried to seriously do it or anything, she just loves to sing and does it for fun...but is still really shy and insecure about it. Which is crazy to me, since she's actually pretty good, IMO. Or at least decent for someone with no training whatsoever.
Anyway...I thought it'd be pretty cool if a couple people could leave some nice/encouraging comments possibly(or 'like' the video), just to give her some more confidence. I doubt the song itself is anything anyone here would really be into, but that's not really the point. Even if you don't think it's that good, it still would be nice. Thanks..
In case anyone cares to know...since this video and all your positive feedback on it, she decided to get a little more into it, and made some more videos. Back in August I got her to enter a contest by this relatively well known Denver musician I know(24th most subscribed musician on youtube), and she's actually started working with him on writing some songs and recording some real projects.
Who knows where all that may go, but I'm still pretty excited for her to get a chance to do something she loves. And thanks again to those of you who left her comments way back then, and helped get motivate her to continue with it.
She just made a new youtube channel too, if anyone wants to check it out.
