Olivia and Gayathiri

The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step

This is true for everything we do in our lives, it doesn’t matter if our journey is one mile or thousand miles, the journey always starts with a single step.

Gayathiri and Olivia are two musical and singing prodigies who have just taken the first step in their journey towards fame and I am pretty sure that it is going to be a long and successful journey.

As a start, I would like you to watch their duet cover song of John Legend’s, All of me.

Both Gayathiri and Olivia possess great talents and have big dreams. So please let me introduce these promising stars:

Olivia Young

Olivia is an English musical genius and singer. She was born on September 23rd, 1998 in the United Kingdom to a big and happy family. Olivia has five siblings ( I wonder how much more talent runs in the family 🙂 ). In addition to singing and playing the guitar, Olivia plays the flute, viola and the oboe (that is why I think she is a genius).

Olivia started learning classical guitar on her own when she was 7 years old; She started taking guitar lessons in primary school and carried on through secondary school. Olivia is in the Birmingham School’s Symphony Orchestra and she has big plans for the future. Almost done through secondary school, She wants to pursue her passion for music and art by studying music at University or a Musical College.

Gayathiri Mathankanna

Gayathiri is a very talented young English singer and musician from Sri Lankan origin. Gayathiri was born on August 18 of 2004, she loves singing and has been learning the violin for 2 years. Even though she is only 10, Gayathiri wishes to pursue a musical career, alongside her goal of becoming a doctor.

The team

As soon as I saw Olivia and Gayathiri’s video, I immediately knew that these two beautiful geniuses were getting some help. The audio and video quality were excellent, the video editing was done nicely and for a first channel video, they have done an amazing job. I was right.

I have watched hundreds of good talents on Youtube go to waste, because of lack of proper recording equipment. It is hard to capture and showcase talent with your smartphone. The man behind the scenes is Gowryshankar, Gayathiri’s elder brother. He manages the camera, the video editing and the Youtube channel, MusicTomorrowForever.

Olivia and Gayathiri have been singing together for a couple of months. Both girls aim to reach The Voice UK. I really wish them luck with that, but meanwhile, I can’t wait to hear them sing again. I want to hear them play the violin, flute, viola and the oboe. Youtube audience is huge and offers a great deal of potential. I think that once their videos get some momentum (I hope this blog will help), they will easily rise in the search results, they will appear in the suggested videos section in youtube and people will hear them and love them.

You, the Reader

At the time of publishing this post, Olivia and Gayathiri’s first video, the cover song of All of me for John Legend,  has only 442 views. I believe that they deserve a lot more than that. If you like their song as much as I do, please share this post and visit their Youtube channel MusicTomorrowForever , like and share their video. Currently, their channel has only one video (published one week ago), but I am pretty sure they will put many more videos soon, because this is only the first step in their journey.

Edit (August 5, 2015) : Olivia and Gayathiri published their second cover song few hours ago, Flashlight for Jessie J.

So this is their second video in 8 days, that is very impressive. I can only imagine how much practice and preparation is needed to film and edit a cover song. It takes talent and hard work to succeed and it looks like Olivia, Gayathiri and Gowryshankar have got both.
