Who is Rebecca Black?

Unless you are under an internet rock, you’ve at least heard mention of Rebecca Black. She is the new Justin Beiber you could say. If you haven’t heard of her at all then first check out her music video for her single Friday.

But in reality who is she and where did she come from? How did she get the opportunity to produce and record this song?

Rebecca Black is a 13 year old singer from Anaheim California. So that means that 13 she has already had more Youtube hits than you ever will. The key thing to know is that she has been trying to break into the entertainment industry for years. She’s gone to dancing school, tried out for multiple Disney type shows and never really quite made it.

So how did she break through? Her mom paid a company called Ark Music Factory to write two songs for her and produce a music video. Working with the vanity publishing company, Rebecca recorded, auto-tuned and produced the song and video. Once the video hit YouTube it went viral. I still have no explanation as to how a video goes viral but it did. Now she has been on Leno and TMZ and all the other major media pop sections.

Will Rebecca stick around and make new songs? Who knows, but I’m sure she and Ark Music Factory are reaping in some benefits of the new found success. You can buy her single form iTunes, and ring tones and the like.

My thoughts on this whole thing. She found a niche and she hit it on the nail and she was successful at it. Maybe it wasn’t the type of breakthrough that she wanted, but now everyone knows her name and have heard her song. She has gotten farther than some people do in an entire life time and for that she should be proud.
