Debby Ryan, one of my favorite actresses (from Disney’s “Jessie,” “16 Wishes,” the inspiring film “What If” which I posted about previously, and other shows and movies) is having a contest to design the artwork for her new song cover. I love Debby’s eccentricity (her Tweets will make you smile and think), creative focus and how she’s a storyteller who enjoys expressing herself in a variety of ways, from acting to music and fashion, to impact others.
Guess who won Debby Ryan’s Cover Artwork Contest? Go check out her Facebook page to see the above winning design! *Happy dance,* am I dreaming?
Debby’s cover is with another inspiring singer Brenna Whitaker who has an ongoing Jazz Night show at the W Hollywood Hotel (I’m just getting acquainted with her work which has been lauded by so many. She says on her site, “Throughout my life, I’ve often felt like I was born in the wrong time, but now, I feel like I was born in this era for a reason.”).
Debby & Brenna’s video cover of Stevie Wonder’s “Superstition” is premiering on Debby’s Youtube Channel on December 1st . The picture they took on set was a great spark of inspiration for a spooky, vintage-y look – I had to stop myself at 16 designs or I’d be going all night… Watch the cool one-take cover video of Superstition below:
Debby on Her Superstition Cover & Meeting Brenna Whitaker
So I’ve done it again. I’ve gone singing with my friends, got a video camera, and made a little tape for you people. I just think one of the best things ever is making music with people you look up to. Brenna Whitaker headlines [and absolutely slays] Jazz Night every week at the world famous W Hotel in Hollywood. She’s an unreal vocalist, a hilariously captivating performer, and has quickly become one of my favourite people. Singing with her was a dream come true & I can’t wait to share her with the rest of the world. I’m all set to put our jam on my channel on DECEMBER 1st, but first it’s time to put the “You” in YouTube. Here’s a photo of us shooting the spooky video; I want to see what you do with it. The contest is open from Monday, Nov. 26th through Thursday, Nov. 29th & I’ll choose the winner Friday.
Check out some of my fave song covers by Debby below: a duet with Nick Santino singing Taylor Swift’s “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” (I love the pure soothing acoustic sweetness) and a cover of “Guilty As Charged” by Gym Class Heroes feat. Estelle with a group of her friends, (a cool acoustic jam with a touch of street:).
