ONTD Original: PSA - Artists You Oughta Know / Music Covers by YouTube Artists

Over the years we've had several lists posted on ONTD of current pop/commercial artists doing covers of other artists's songs. So I figured since YouTube has been responsible for launching the career of artists such as Justin Beiber, Charice, Arnel Pineda (current frontman of Journey), and most recently Karmin; I thought I'd accumulate a list of several artists on YT that I think deserve a little bit of attention.

Sara Niemietz
Stay by Rihanna

YouTube Channel
Also check out: Original song "Rooftops" + covers of "Give Me Love" w/ Jake Coco, "Feeling Good", "Rolling in the Deep" & "Stereo Hearts".
Trivia: She was featured on The Ellen Show a couple of years back.



Jess Moskaluke
"Try" by Pink

YouTube Channel
Also check out: Original song "Catch Me if You Can" + covers of "Wide Awake", "Stronger" & "Fast Car".

Anthem Lights (the boyband feature)
"Just the Way You Are" by Bruno Mars

YouTube Channel
Also check out: Original song "Hide Your Love Away" + covers of "As Long As You Love Me", One Direction Medley, "Mirrors" + their 2012 Pop Medley.
Trivia: The band have four members, but you might notice (especially if you're watching the videos out of order) that one original member Kyle Kupecky has been replaced with Joey Stamper.

Jenn Lucas
"Give Me Love" by Ed Sheeran

YouTube Channel
Also check out: Covers of "Stay" & "Lego House"

Juliana Daily

Honorable mentions: Corey Gray, Edei, Jenny Lane, Kait Weston, Nicole Cross & Tim Halperin

Note: Some of these artists may have been or currently signed to record labels (mostly independents) but have yet to make a big splash and need a little bit more exposure. And of course these are my subjective opinions. I also resisted on putting super popular YT artists on this list such as Boyce Avenue, Christina Grimmie, Tyler Ward, Kurt Hugo Schneider, Cimorelli, Kina Grannis etc.. so don't bash me for excluding any. Just post your faves below!
