Another Star Is Born On Youtube
A video of a young woman selected randomly from the audience by Kristin Chenoweth to sing a duet with her during her performance at the Hollywood Bowl on Friday has now been viewed nearly two million times on YouTube. The woman, Sarah Horn, a music teacher in Riverside, CA clearly outshone Chenoweth herself, who nevertheless appeared delighted by her discovery. The video was taken by Horn's friend, Mike Kestler, a student at California Baptist University, where Horn teaches and where Kestler majors in music composition and piano. He told the Riverside Press Enterprise that he uploaded the video on YouTube shortly after he returned home and soon noticed a comment from someone urging that the video get one million views by September. Honestly, I was a little skeptical. I thought maybe just our friends and some of the people at the Bowl would look it up, he told the newspaper. By the next day it had already been viewed a million times. Newspapers and websites around the world have taken notice, many of them heading their articles with variations of the phrase A Star Is Born.
