Sophia Grace Brownlee raps Super bass & Rosie Grace McClelland dances!! (by RosieGraceMcClelland)

This is the video that caught Americas eye.  Sophia sings super bass. She’s knows almost every word. It just shows how urban music influences people all over of all ages. She’s so young rapping and singing Nicki’s lyrics. Although, she does have a good strong voice. You never know she could be a future star.

Nicki Minaj Surprises Young “Super Bass” YouTube Stars Sophia & Rosie On Ellen Degeneres Show (by DJJAZZTV)

Nicki and Ellen are making dreams come true for these two little girls. Sophia is so passionate when she sings the song. It’s so cute watching her sing her heart out. She screamed, “YOUR REAL.. YOUR REAL!” I like this video because nicki is so passionate about it as well. 

Join us for this great Chicago Ideas Week event taking place at Columbia College Chicago. Panel discussion with representatives from: Pitchfork, Windish, Billions, Jive and Atlantic Records, and Platform One Entertainment!
