YouTube View Counters

Some fans may have noticed that the view counts on Connie's YouTube channel have been stuck on the same numbers for a few days now.

At first sight, this might seem worrying. It makes you think: "Has everyone stopped watching?" Of course, it's no such thing. In fact, as long-time YT followers will know, it's one of those things that happens on YouTube from time to time.

It's similar to the so-called "301 effect", the way a new video often gets stuck on 301 views. This is because it gets views so fast that the security software panics and shuts down the counter for a while.

Connie's videos are getting a healthy number of views - they're just not showing the numbers yet.

So we suggest to everyone:

Keep Calm and Carry On!

Best wishes from Connie's team :-)

Viddy Followers

Posted by Connie's team:

Here's some news. Connie's page on is just about to hit 7,000 followers (or 7K as they call it on Viddy).

It's funny, because it seems like no time at all since the day we first announced on this blog that Connie had joined Viddy. Time flies when you're having fun!

Here's a little puzzle for our readers: Can you find the date of the post on this blog where that announcement was made? And can you calculate the average number per day of Connie's new followers since the announcement?

Best wishes from Connie's team.

Connie's New Album Almost Finished

From Connie's team:

Connie has almost finished recording her new album, and she had a lot of fun making it. We hope you guys will all have fun listening to it when it's released, and tell all your friends so they can have fun too!

On her Twitter page ConnieTalbot607 today, Connie said: "Well I have had a brilliant time recording this album and its almost finished! Time flies when you are enjoying yourself"

This weekend, Connie was putting the finishing touches to it - vocal effects, and background vocals, in which even her dad, Gavin, took part!

Here's Connie's latest viddy with producers Kipper Eldridge and Bradley Mair, showing off their amazing skills at "Double Double This".

Some More Important Numbers

From Connie's team:

Yesterday, the number of Connie's Twitter followers reached 75,000. That's a lot of people. At this rate, it won't be long before Connie's followers could fill Wembley Stadium in London to capacity! That would be when the number reaches 90,000. Can you guess what date that will be?

Answers in the comments section below please!

Congratulations to all the 75,000 followers. You have great musical taste!

Also this week, the old video on YouTube of Connie's first audition on Britain's Got Talent reached 120 MILLION views. That's like the population of an entire country (and a large country at that), but the people are spread all over the world.

That video has become almost an icon, but it is not the original copy of the audition. There was a whole bunch of copies around on YouTube at the time, and this is just the one that survived and made it to the charts. Connie doesn't own this video, so we have no control over it, but we hope you enjoy it anyway.

Connie Working in Recording Studio This Week

From Connie's team:

Hi everyone,

Connie is back in the recording studio today, and for all of the first part of this week, working on songs for her new album. She hopes to finish recording all of her vocal tracks for the album during these sessions.

After that, it will be the job of music producer Kipper Eldridge and his team to apply their skills to make the music sound as great as it possibly can. Then they will only need to put a few finishing touches on it before it goes ahead to the next stage of production.

The album, which is due for release in Asia this December, is currently right on schedule. Everyone involved has found it easy and fun to work on this project.

This is an exciting time for all of Connie's many fans, who have had to wait a very long time for a new album from Connie. It's definitely going to be worth the wait!

More Viddys This Weekend

From Connie's team:

Connie has been hard at work making viddys on This weekend, she uploaded no fewer than four of them!

Here's a question for you: Can you guess what they all had in common?

No prizes... they all feature Connie playing guitar. (Just in case anyone thought she had given up the guitar to concentrate on piano?) Shall we ask Connie if she was inspired by the amazing guitar playing of Kipper Eldridge in their recent "Imagine" video?

With these four viddys, Connie has built up her followers even more, so she now only needs a few more to reach 5,000 followers! Tell your friends...

The most popular of Connie's viddys from yesterday is this one.
(It was also the #2 most popular viddy on worldwide within hours after upload:)

Connie Works With Award-Winning Producer, Kipper Eldridge

From Connie's manager, Rod Paul:

Hi, everyone,

Have you all seen Connie's wonderful new You Tube video where she sings IMAGINE with accompaniment by the legendary songwriter/producer Kipper Eldridge on guitar? It's one you won't want to miss.

Connie is hard at work these days with Kipper to record an album for the Asian market. She has carefully selected the songs with Ashley Whitfield at EvoSound Records in Hong Kong that will be best received by her audience in that region.

Kipper is a Grammy and Emmy winning producer and musican, best known for producing and performing on Sting's biggest selling solo album "Brand New Day", as well as the platinum albums "All This Time" and "Sacred Love".

The plan is for Connie to visit Hong Kong in December to promote the album and perform live at various venues. This will be her second trip to Hong Kong this year.

Connie is expected to be back in the studio in Los Angeles, early in 2013, working on her album with Toby Gad - another huge name in the music business.  Toby has produced for Demi Lovato, The Wanted, One Direction, Carly Rae Jepsen, Beyonce and many other major artists.

Another big event, coming up soon (November 20th) for Connie, is her 12th birthday!
