My YouTube Clip of the week. AMAZING cover of #Pharrell #Happy @LaurenPlatt7

Hello again 🙂

Saturdays mean… another posting of My YouTube clip of the week. Now I’m a little behind in the X Factor UK world… I’m still catching up on season 11 (which has already ended with the amazing Ben taking the title). However… I can watch THIS performance over and over again. One of my favourite performers and performances of the season, I would like to introduce you to Ms. Lauren Platt.

Lauren Platt

Lauren Platt (born 7 October 1997) was a student from Essex.[24] In 2010, she auditioned for the role of Louise Mitchell on EastEnders, but lost out to Brittany Papple.[25] She has stated that her dream duet would be Beyoncé.[1]

Platt was the youngest solo contestant in the competition.[26] With the eliminations of Stephanie Nala and Chloe Jasmine in week two and Lola Saunders in week four, Platt was Fernandez-Versini’s last remaining act in the competition. In week 8, Platt was in the bottom two with Stereo Kicks but was saved by the public vote after the result went to deadlock.[27] However in week 9, she was in the bottom two with Andrea Faustini and was eliminated after only Fernandez-Versini voted to save her, finishing in fourth place and becoming the last of her acts to leave the competition.[10]

This video, published in Oct 2014 has had over 1,870,000 views (when publishing this post). I think it is soulful and beautiful and age appropriate and just flipping kiff. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do. Follow Lauren on twitter here.

Only watch this if you WANT TO DANCE!! My #YouTubeClipofTheWeek. It’s @C2Cdjs #Happy. #GospelFunk #wow

Every week I choose a ‘sick’ video and share it with you, my readers and on air with my Heart 104.9FM listeners. Today is an absolute favourite of mine.
This song is called HAPPY… and oh my oh my…. I get SO STOKED when I listen to it. And I think that this music video is off the chaaaaaaain. Hence the reason THIS is my choice for my #YoutubeClipOfTheWeek. At the time of me putting up this post, this video (put up in Dec 2012) had had just over 11,803,000 views

C2C (also known as Coups2Cross) was formed in 1998 in the city of Nantes. The collaboration group consists of 4 French DJ’s: Atom and pFeL from Beat Torrent and 20Syl and Greem from Hocus Pocus. Members of an emerging movement called scratch music, each member of the group uses his turntable as an instrument, recreating in turn drums, bass guitars, scratching a riff of guitar or shearing the brass.

They met during their high school years and as teens they were fascinated by the work of DJ Qbert and DJ Shadow, the founding fathers of turntablism. They set off to make a name for themselves at the turn of the millennium and soon started developing their own unique performing style. Follow them on twitter HERE

“Happy”
(feat. Derek Martin)

You’ll never feel happy
You’ll never feel happy, no you won’t, until you try!
You’ll never feel happy
You’ll never feel happy, until you even try [x7]
You’ll never feel happy, until you try

You’ll never feel happy, until you even try [x3]
You’ll never feel happy, until you try

Everybody needs this
Everybody needs this, happy thing
Everybody needs this, everybody needs this, happy thing

This song is not a gospel song
This song is not a funk song
This song is not a wrong song
This song is a real song aaaah!

You’ll never feel happy, until you even try! [x4]
I need to be happy! Every, everyday!
And every night!
Everybody!
Again and again!
You know what? you’ll never never never never never never never never feel..

You’ll never feel happy, until you even try …

Never never never,
Never never never,
Never never never,
Never never never woooou!

You’ll never feel happy, until you even try! [x4]
Haheheuhoho…
