"SAIL AWAY" Preview - Connie in California video passes 500,000 view mark!

When Connie came to Los Angeles in April, we thought it would be interesting for her to record an original "Pop" song.  Noted songwriter/producer Robbie Nevil, came up with SAIL AWAY for us and on a Sunday morning, at Robbie's studio in Santa Monica, Connie stepped up to the microphone.

We all loved what we heard.  What started out as an "experiment" turned into a fun and popular song for Connie.  The little video we put together just passed 500,000 views on YouTube!

Produced and released independently, the song is doing well on iTunes and the other digital download sites.  We are starting to get radio airplay worldwide and we've made a distribution deal for the song in Japan, where Connie has many fans.  The popular teen music website TweenPopRadio has a Top 40 list and Connie has been at #1 for five straight weeks... ahead of One Direction, Demi Lovato, Maroon5, Carly Rae Jepsen, even Justin Bieber.

As most of you know, Connie has recorded 4 new songs with multi-platinum songwriter/producer Toby Gad.  Two of the songs, Connie co-wrote!  Hopefully, she will be back in the studio with Toby soon, to produce more tracks with the goal of an album in mind.

Plans are in the works for Connie to record an album for the Asian market and a trip to Hong Kong in December to promote it.

Going back to SAIL AWAY for a moment... it is really important that folks support the single by purchasing it.  Unfortunately, today, only about half of the digital downloads for songs are legal ones.  Piracy has really hurt the music industry, the artists and all of the supporting people who make music for us to listen to possible.  So, just remember how hard artists like Connie work to entertain us all and share with us their special talent.  Isn't a dollar worth it to keep the music coming from people like Connie?  If you haven't done it yet, please visit iTunes, CDBaby, Amazon or your favorite legitimate download site and do your part to support your favorite artists.

If you haven't seen the SAIL AWAY preview video yet, have a look... it's pure Connie!

Connie sings for Young Voices (Playlist)

There are some new playlists on Connie's YouTube channel, ConnieTalbotOfficial. Here's the first one: Young Voices Concert Series 2011/12

The Young Voices Series in the UK is coming up again fairly soon (early December). Connie is already scheduled to star in it once again, so I just thought you might like to get some sense of the incredible atmosphere of those concerts, which play every year to full houses in some of the biggest arena venues in the UK. In this playlist you can see a few of Connie's great performances from the previous series.

Being at a Young Voices concert is an unforgettable experience for everyone - children, parents, performers, and everyone who attends. Connie described Young Voices 2011/12 as the best thing she has ever done. Considering this is from someone who reached the final of Britain's Got Talent, and also sang for an audience of 400 million people in China - that gives you some impression of how amazing it feels to be part of it.

To find playlists on Connie's channel, just go to the channel page
and you'll see the playlists in the right-hand sidebar.

Some Words About the Beautiful World Contest

Here’s some words about the Beautiful World contest. 

First of all, when they told me how many people had entered, I had to do a quick double-take. I just couldn’t believe it. The response was absolutely incredible. 73 videos !! It took over five hours to watch them all! 

The thing that struck me most of all was the immense enthusiasm and dedication of every single one of the contestants. It was a very tough job for Connie to choose the winner, but she made her choice at last. Many congratulations to Viktoria! And also, loads of thanks to Connie for being the judge! 

Every entry to the contest was amazing in its own special way, and everyone brought their own individual interpretation to the song.  In fact, you are all amazing people. Connie is very lucky (and she herself knows it) to have such extraordinary people as her fans – not only the people who entered the contest, but all Connie’s fans. 

That’s why Connie likes to think of you all as, "not just fans, but friends." 

Some people have asked if we are planning to have any more contests. The answer is yes, as soon as we’ve got ourselves a bit more organized around here. We have some very cool ideas, and we’ll let you know about them when we’re ready. 

In the meantime, I’m interested to know if any of you out there has any ideas for contests you’d like to see. If you do, then the best way to reply to me is to leave a comment on this blog post, or you could send a message to Connie’s YouTube inbox. Either way, I’ll be sure to see it. I can’t guarantee we’ll be able to use all of your ideas, but we’d love to see them anyway. So get your thinking caps on!

Connie Talbot is on Viddy

This is just to let you know that Connie is now on Viddy.

The way we found out about Viddy was rather curious. Connie’s manager, Rod Paul, happened to be reading the newspapers one day (as you do) and he came across an article in the Los Angeles Times about a mobile app/website known as Viddy which has been attracting followers very fast recently. 

Viddy has been called "the Twitter for videos" - you follow people, they follow you, and everyone uploads videos, but they must be 15 seconds or less. The mobile app is only available on the iPhone right now, but an Android version will be ready soon, they tell us. Of course, you can always watch Viddy from a PC or a Mac, if you prefer that.

So, Rod showed the article to Connie and her sister Mollie, and they checked out the Viddy app. They thought it was a really good idea, and Connie was eager to get started with it. 

Later that day, Connie showed me her list of ideas for possible viddys. At first glance, all I could see was a page full of amazing pictures and words and colors and swirly bits everywhere. I said, “Wow, Connie, that’s a great piece of artwork! Maybe you should put it on exhibition at the National Gallery in London?” 

It took Connie a while to convince me it was actually a list. I’m sure everyone will forgive me for being a bit slow on the uptake. When I make lists, they look kind of... list-like and, well, a bit dull really. It takes some time for me to adjust to the idea of working with someone like Connie, who makes lists that look like works of art.

If you follow Connie on Viddy, you can expect to see some of the ideas on that list turned into viddys very soon. Click here to go to and watch some viddys from Connie!

Anyway, what I’m trying to say is, that the LA Times article tells us that Justin Bieber has a keen interest in Viddy, and that he is giving it his full support. So, Justin, if you happen to be reading this, just to let you know that Connie Talbot is also now on Viddy, and that she supports it too!

Thanks to everyone who has visited here, and given Connie your amazing support. You are awesome!

While you're here, don't forget to subscribe and/or join as a member, so you won't miss any of Connie's updates. Also we will really appreciate if you tell all your friends. Thanks!

Beamer Wigley

Hi everyone, just been watching Beamer Wigley's cover of Sail Away and its brilliant, my dream one day was to see someone perform one of my songs and enjoy the music and he did just that :) Also, he's amazing at guitar! Maybe one day he could teach me some guitar skills :D

Thanks for reading...

SAIL AWAY Live on Stage

We like this live cover of Connie's song SAIL AWAY by our friend from Canada, Beamer Wigley. We hope you like it too. :-)

The Ultimate Chart Show

We just found out that there's a repeat of "Die Ultimative Chart Show" (The Ultimate Chart Show) on the RTL TV channel in Germany at 20.15 until 23.00 Germany time on Friday August 10th. (It's also repeated again later at 00.30.)

Connie appears in the show, and she sings one song. We won't tell you which song, just in case you haven't seen it yet!

Although the show lasts nearly 3 hours, it's very interesting. But if you just want to see the part where Connie appears, watch the final half-hour. If you're in Germany, you can watch on air. Outside Germany, you can watch the stream on the RTL website.

Thanks to Kim (katharinakim1000) for giving us the information. :-)

Learning Some New Things

It just goes to show, you should never think you know everything there is to know. I thought I did, but I was proved wrong when I read this new article/interview.

It's called Connie Talbot "The World's Youngest Superstar" and if you want to read it, you can find it here

It's a great article, and I learned a few things I didn't know before. So, if you want to know (among other things) what is Connie's favorite candy, and also if you want to learn a secret fact that no-one else knows about, well, I guess you'll just have to read the article for yourself! :-)


I was making some new video's with Connie yesterday where she took me by surprise and 'rapped' the whole ludacris verse of baby, Justin Bieber! Crazy Girl!
