On July 23rd, 2011 I played my 2nd Google+ Hangout Concert... A "Hangout" is a live 10-person video chat on Google's amazing new social network Google+.
For this 2nd concert we live-streamed the show so that an unlimited number of people could watch from their computers while also "rotating" in and out of the 9 "front row seats" inside the hangout with me where laughed, marveled at the technology and became friends as I played through the night.
As night turned to day for viewers in Europe, evening into the wee-hours of the morning for me in Connecticut, USA, and morning shifted to afternoon in Australia... We kept playing to see as many of their beautiful faces as I could. We played for 7.5 Hours straight. :-)
9,000 viewers from 100 countries watched!!!
It was the best night of my life.
This is our song "You Move Me" performed by me and my producer/bassist RAM live at this G+ Hangout Concert and captured by viewer and G+nius Charlie Isaacs! Thank you Charlie!!
"You Move Me" is going to be one of the first singles off of my debut album!
Thank you G+niuses for helping me pick it!
On this song RAM is playing the Roland Fantom G8 Keyboard and triggering the Roland V-Synth Keyboard which has a harmonizing effect, so he plays a chord and I SING it through the microphone.
All the vocals are me singing live. No edits. And of course no Auto-tune. ;-)
Our first Hangout Concert was called the first "pro-level" concert on a Hangout by the G+ Hangout director of engineering Chee Chew.
Hundreds of these gorgeous G+niuses as I call them - from countries all over the world - came to that first concert (held on July 16th, 2011). So many came that they came up with the idea to "rotate" and and out of the 9 "front row" seats with me, and that night I played for 6.5 Hours straight. :-)
Our 3rd G+ Hangout Concert is in planning now and coming soon!

to learn more! If you're not on G+ yet, hit the "send email" button on my G+ Profile Page and I'll send you an invite myself. :-)
Concert 3 will be streamed live for an unlimited audience, like concert 2... But get on G+ so that you'll have a chance to rotate in and be a part of the audience in the inside the Hangout with me. As always I will play all night to meet as many of you as I can.
Thank you Google+ and G+niuses for changing my life and my heart in a night. I'm your G+rl forever.
