Nicole Westbrook is showing the world that using social media can bring the attention of millions to your YouTube video. All many upcoming independent musicians need is a “break” and the rest can turn into a career. After all, many laughed at Rebecca Black, but she did end up with a million dollar record deal. No matter how someone gets discovered at least they are getting somewhere in this extremely competitive and cut throat music industry.
Many independent artists are not looking to become a viral sensation because of the negative backlash, it’s just the way technology today reacts to the viral phenomena. So these artists are thrusted into this media frenzy and are of course they are ridiculed and humiliated. Again, one shouldn’t worry about this since they are at least getting exposure. Carl Lewis was quoted as saying, “Any press is good press. So keep on ragging me.” Good luck Nicole on your viral fame and we hope the best for you and your music career.
