is one of the first people I started to follow on Youtube. His video covering Justin Bieber's "Baby" is what won me over. Over the past years, his popularity has grown to over hundreds of subscribers.

Ward has already an album on Itunes, and he is a prime example for how YouTube is becoming the new outlet for people to get noticed and to easily become well known. Check out his latest cover song video here:

- another great interpretation of a Katy Perry song. This time, he collaborated with equally talented Youtube artist Alex Goot...This performance is so simple and beautiful, no big things, just two amazing voices!!

DOLORES O'RIORDAN covers Fleetwood Mac

I really missed the Irish band CRANBERRIES especially the haunting voice of vocalist DOLORES O'RIORDAN. After the band's hiatus in 2003, Oriordan released two solo albums- Are You Listening (2007) and No Baggage. In 2009, the band reunited and began a North American tour, followed by dates in Latin America and Europe in early 2010.

According to their website, they are planning to enter the studio next year to begin recording their much delayed new album. Meanwhile, check out Oriordan's amazing acoustic cover performance of Fleetwood Mac classic hit Go Your Own Way. Watch!

This song has the best lyrics ever! When I found out The White Stripes had done this just blew me away!
