Meet A Megastar ft. Andie Case

Sometimes Roughing It Pays Off. 
Andie Case Is On Her Way to Megastardom.

Singer and songwriter Andie Case is a powerful and relentless talent whose music showcases the heart and life of a not-so-ordinary girl. Born in Eugene, Oregon, Andie is one of seven children.

At 18, Andie left home and struck out for Los Angeles in her ‘93 Pontiac Bonneville. She was determined to make her mark in music, and L.A. was the place to be. She couldn’t afford a place to live and so she camped out in her car. For six months. That’s guts.

Soon Andie met singer/songwriter Ajay Marshall. He recognized her talent, original voice, style, and determination and brought her into the studio to record for the very first time. Andie and Ajay worked together for the next couple years sculpting her skills as a singer and developing her into a compelling songwriter.

Andie knew she wanted to reach a massive audience and though she wanted them to hear her original music, she realized that sometimes you have to do covers to get people to pay attention to your originals. So she posted cover videos on YouTube and they took off. In spring 2016, she released her debut single "Coming Around" to high praise. She released a second successful single "So Low" in November and by December, Andie had offer to her first national tour.

Today, Andie seems unstoppable - confident in her presence and talent. Her songs have catchy, soaring hooks arranged to optimize on her range. She digs deep to express love, loss and everything that comes with finding herself in the face of adversity, believing in herself so much that her fans believe in her too. Through everything, you feel that rebel, determined to make her own way, to write her own future, to manifest the mega success she has clearly imagined.

She’s a star. A star of her own design.

Check out all of her submissions on the Megastar app. We have a feeling you’ll be seeing and hearing a lot of Andie Case in the years to come.

Meet A Megastar ft. Akil Apollo Davis

Meet A Megastar ft. Akil Apollo Davis

He came to give.
And Fans received Akil Apollo Davis hungrily. 

Akil Apollo Davis is nothing short of amazing. He goes from parading down Wall Street followed by a troupe of dancers to dancing in the park in a costume that’s giraffe-meets-funk while singing the funky “Get up to get down.” Then he follows in the competition with a magical dance piece, “I Came to Give,” sinuous Balinese moves, masked, streaming clouds of color with scarves, culminating in a brilliant rap, sandwiched between philosophical musings about how artists are the new priests of our culture. Stunning. Full of heart. Full of soul. Full of art. He came to give. He gave. We received.

Akil is an adjunct Professor of Mask and Art Aesthetic at NYU and SUNY Purchase, and you can see his theatricality throughout his performances. He believes in art’s power to heal. To expand the mind. To express the inexpressible. And he approaches his Megastar performance videos with eye to surprise, painting with a broad stroke that slices through genres, cultures, and music styles. He aims to capture your eye. Capture your surprise. Capture your imagination. Capture your heart.

And in the Megastar competition, he captured votes as well, making it to the top five. He is rare. We can’t wait to see what he does next.

Meet A Megastar ft. Monique Benabou

Meet A Megastar ft. Monique Benabou

Talented. Charming. Beautiful. And fighting for a cause.

Monique Benabou is talented, motivated, beautiful, and has a strong base of support in Alameda, Ca., where she grew up. But this wasn’t always the case for the 29-year-old singer/songwriter.

As a teen, Monique was the victim of verbal and physical bullying by her fellow students. In her junior year of high school she got her GED and got out.

Those years are far behind her now; she is a strong advocate for anti-bullying foundations that help victims and build awareness around the issue. She wants to help youth understand that “bullying is not OK and it’s not cool.”

To overcome her personal hardships with bullying, Monique dug deep inside herself and stopped asking permission to be herself...and...Monique is amazing.

Her voice reaches deep, surfacing the emotions she feels so strongly. She’s developed her own style, and it had Megastar Fans raving as they propelled her all the way to the top five in the first global Megastar talent competition. Monique Benabou is a model for us all. Don’t let others define you. Define yourself.

Meet A Megastar ft. Adam and Kizzie

Meet A Megastar ft. Adam and Kizzie

Blood and Heart
What You See Is Real With Adam and Kizzie.

And what you get is 100% real. Real love. Real talent. These two love music almost as much as they love one another. #RelationshipGoals.

Adam and Kizzie make a great team because they’re both incredibly creative and have a long history with music. At the age of 6, Adam was already performing as a piano soloist in his mother’s choir. When Kizzie was 3, her mother noticed that she had a knack for music and encouraged her to sing in her church choir.

Now, Adam writes music, plays the keys, sings, and is the beatboxer of the duo. Kizzie writes lyrics and sings. Together they make fun and soulful music.

Although Adam and Kizzie have their family and friends’ encouragement to continue to perform, they’ve shouldered the financial burden of creating music on their own. So what would the $1 million dollar prize mean to them? Both Adam and Kizzie agree that winning it would allow them to continue to share their music with the world with the same quality we’ve grown to admire in their Megastar submissions.

Meet A Megastar ft. The Real Chantel C

Meet A Megastar ft. The Real Chantel C

The Real Chantel C.
From down under to the top! 

The Real Chantel C is clearly one of the most hard-working talents out there. Not only is she a star on the Disney Channel in Australia 🐨 (where she’s from), but she’s also a biomedical student, all while managing to push herself to perform as a solo singer with the voice of an angel.

And hard work pays off. Literally. During the Meet Usher Live Streaming Contest, Chantel earned the most gifts from backers, earning her the right to be at the Megastar App Live Finale event with Usher. Her fans believe in her and are willing to put their money where their vote is. And with a long history of singing, it’s no wonder they do.

According to Chantel’s father, she’s been singing since before she could talk, but she started taking professional lessons at 9 years old.

Hmmm. Her name is Chantel. We wonder what that name means. 🤔

The three top Performers with the most Fame Points will be the lucky ones to get a mentoring session with Usher.

giphy-downsized (3).gif

To all the talent, START LIVESTREAMING. The great thing is, each Gift you receive as Performer in the Megastar App can be redeemed for cold 👏 hard 👏 cash! 👏   💸💰😎

what's the catch?

No catch but there are Official Rules for the Megastar Mini Competition. 

Mentor Minutes 4-7

Mentor Minutes 4-7

WORDS OF WISDOM FROM USHER

Usher is the lead mentor on the megastar app. Consider his thoughtful approach to creating great performance art.

After all, he’s been doing this since he was 12, has had to push through a lot of incredible stuff; from the self-doubt as a kid just starting out to learning how to work hard, then pivoting and breaking new ground and more.

Check out four more of his Mentoring Minutes on the Megastar app, where he talks about how to face creativity with a mind to win. 

Here are a few tips to remember on your way to performer success:

DEDICATION

If art were easy, it wouldn’t be worth much. The hard work, the attention to detail, the focus, the endless practice… all of this makes it even more rewarding when you succeed. Dedication means taking time everyday, every chance you can, to advance as an artist: practice, perform, perfect.

GOT_danny_dedication.png

 If you’re truly inspired and dedicated, one thing should naturally follow…

AUTHENTICITY

When you’re connected to what inspires you and truly dedicated to turning it into reality, your authenticity will effortlessly shine through. There’s one sure way to “be yourself”: pursue what you want with all your heart and soul. When your fans feel the real you, they’ll believe you, and they’ll believe in what you 😉 do!

Of course, so many performers are plagued by self-doubt. Am I good enough? 😟 Am I smart enough? 😕 Doggone it, will people like me? 😒 (Okay, enough Stuart Smalley. 😜)  You have to be fearless, which is why we want to talk about....

Megastar_authenticity.gif

BRAVERY

When you know who you are and what you’re about, nothing can take that away from you. Don’t be afraid to be who you really are. Seize every moment and focus on what matters. Don’t hesitate to the be the most you you can be. That’s bravery. You don’t have to combat fear if you just put your eye on the prize 🥇 and remember that you’re in this to make an impact, to create great art, see your name in lights and share with others what only you can give.

Megastar_brave.gif

When there’s nothing to stop you, and you know what you have to offer the world, that’s how you know you’re ready for…

FAME

You might think that getting famous means getting lucky, as if fame finds you. Wrong! Fame is out there waiting for you to take it. It’s yours to claim. Stand in the spotlight and let yourself be seen. That’s the name of the game. 

Megastar_fame.gif

So, stop wondering how to be famous, and get to it! Watch Usher’s Mentoring Minutes and plan to be successful, like only you can be.

If you don’t yet have the Megastar app, get it today and vote. The next Megastar needs your votes.  Votes are what will propel the lucky winner to victory. And you know what? The performers competing are pretty amazing.

USHER IS YOUR MENTOR

In Megastar’s new Mentoring Minute series, Usher 🙌 shares his wisdom on what it takes to push for success, to overcome challenges, to get yourself psyched, to deal with criticism and a lot more.

Get the app and meet your mentor; he’s a very inspiring guy. This week we’re sharing three of his Mentoring Minute videos.

In that vein, let’s talk about what you’ll need to become a Megastar…

 

INSPIRATION

If you want to inspire audiences, you have to feel inspired. Inspiration is the drive that will push you forward to success. 👌 It’s the quality that will draw people to you. It’s the idea, 💡 the production and everything that surrounds it. Find what thrills you, share it, and don’t be surprised when others share your enthusiasm.

But creating an inspired performance won’t always be easy and that’s why you’ll need…

 

POSTING

When you post, think about it carefully. 🤔 Ask yourself how you want to be perceived and tell your story. Edit. One of the most important things to remember in this always-on digital age is that whatever you post becomes part of your history, of your personal narrative, of your artist footprint. Make sure it represents you the way you want to be represented.

Once you’re proud of your work, post it. Fearlessly. And know that it will be a good ambassador of your...

 

BRAND

It can take time, but once you’ve identified what inspires you, dedicated yourself to pursuing it, remained authentic, and overcome your fears, that’s when you can stake your claim. Show ‘em 😎 what sets you apart, what makes you different, what makes you undeniable, and wear it like a badge in everything that you do.

USHER’S  MANIFESTO

USHER’S MANIFESTO

Megastar isn’t just about making some lucky artist a freshly minted millionaire 🍀 💸 

-- it’s about pioneering a new way for artists to connect with audiences from around the world in ways they’ve never had before.

There is no secret formula for “how to become famous.”

Every individual performer finds their own path. Or they forge one. And if there’s anyone who knows what it takes, not only to become famous but how to make someone else a success, it’s Megastar’s Chief Creative Officer and Head Judge, Usher. 🔥🙌🔥

Yeah, Usher, who not only earned himself a record contract with Sean Combs (Brother Love, formerly, P.Diddy/Puff Daddy/Diddy. Did we get them all? 😜) when he was just 14-years-old, but who helped guide Justin Bieber to the success that he is today.

Usher believes in Megastar. ⭐ He’s recorded a manifesto for you that dives beneath the surface of his dedication. It’s his stake in the ground, a powerful and passionate statement of the reasons he believes Megastar could be your vehicle to success.

He wants you to watch it. We want you to watch it. Join us in this amazing journey to propel performers as they travel the road from belief in themselves to incredible expression to becoming a Megastar.

But you don’t need to be a performer to participate; this Megastar app, this grand competition is built for fans. Because it’s fans like you who will drive performers to success, fans like you who will propel performers— by watching, voting, tipping, commenting, sharing, and promoting —  to win big cash prizes. And elevate one extraordinary performer to the ultimate prize, to become our first global Megastar. To win $1,000,000.

Nuge Music 🇺🇸

While Nuge didn’t make it past this Heat, he certainly deserves a shout out. Nuge claims Cincinnati as his hometown, and takes pride in his Vietnamese heritage. With a voice like butter, and guitar skills to match, just let his cover of Goo Goo Dolls’ “Name” wash over you. If you can’t feel his passion for music from this one, you may be dead inside. 😬💀

Paul Spaeth makes one fiery impression with his passionate “Phoenix Rising” submission. You probably wouldn’t guess Paul’s from a small town, Slinger, Wisconsin, when you hear his piano playing soar high over a pulsing electronic beat. And check out that get up! 😯

The way Olanrewaju’s body twists and floats as he moves make you wonder if he doesn’t moonlight as a marionette puppet. Another contestant repping Canada, Olanrewaju, certainly shows a passion for contorting body in way that will astonish you.

Jeb Corliss.png

Jeb Corliss is both a real life Megastar and your mentor on the Megastar App!

Meet Jeb Corliss, professional skydiver, BASE jumper, wingsuit pilot, and the latest celebrity judge in our worldwide Megastar competition.

Whether he’s diving from thousands of feet in the air to thread narrow caverns with only inches of clearance to spare, or swimming outside of a cage to pet Great White Sharks off the coast of Mexico, Jeb Corliss is a performance artist on the grand scale.

With every stunt he executes, he literally risks life and limb to do the unthinkable and defy the limits of fear. 😱

At a young age, Jeb knew that he wanted to do great things (or at least nothing more than simply defy gravity).

The story goes: Young Jeb was sitting in the backseat of his aunt’s car watching birds jump and glide from telephone pole to telephone pole. At that moment he told his aunt, “When I get older, I’m going to do that.” Despite his aunt’s explanation that humans can’t fly, he simply replied, “Maybe you can’t...but I’m going to.”

And fly he did! After all, this guy grew up capturing rattlesnakes 🐍 and poisonous spiders 🕷 which he kept as pets.

BASE: the various structures that jumpers launch off. Buildings, Antennas, Spans (bridges), and Earth (cliffs).

BASE: the various structures that jumpers launch off. Buildings, Antennas, Spans (bridges), and Earth (cliffs).

In his late teens, shortly after learning to SCUBA, Jeb discovered BASE jumping and at age 18 he started skydiving in preparation to become a BASE jumper. 

After completed four years of BASE training, he made his first jump off a Northern California bridge, and has continued making leaps ever since.

Over his nearly twenty year career, Jeb has completed over 1,000 recorded jumps - from the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, to the Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. He plans to fly along the Great Wall of China.

As if jumping off of extremely high places wasn’t hard enough, Jeb has added a new challenge to his repertoire! 😧☠ As a proximity flyer, Jeb pops helium balloons with his head at high speeds just feet away from colliding with walls and cliffsides.

He has been profiled by The New York Times, Men’s Journal, Rolling Stone and more. His many television appearances include Good Morning America, Today, The Colbert Report, ESPN’s E:60, and Conan. Jeb has also starred in several documentaries, and was the original host of Discovery Channel’s Stunt Junkies.

Now, Jeb stands as a reminder that Megastar is a platform where everyone can show their talent. The discerning eye of someone as dedicated, passionate, and talented as Jeb makes him the ideal judge to help us find the world’s next Megastar.

If you’re an extreme athlete or adventurist that has turned your talent into an unlikely performance, Jeb may just be your champion and mentor!

As a Megastar judge and mentor, Jeb hopes to encourage everyone to give themselves fully to their dreams –– whatever they may be:

“I have been very fortunate in my life and I have seen things many people wouldn’t believe. Now I want to help others see them too. I want to help inspire people to follow their passion and I feel Megastar can help me do this.”

Check out this video where we talk to Jeb directly and learn about what he’s looking for in the world’s next Megastar:
