I stumbled upon Kina Grannis on YouTube...geez I have to think about this...in middle school?? maybe early high school?? Anyway, this woman is amazing. She has such a kind heart, a free spirit, and is a great role model. Oh and I forgot to mention she is WICKEDLY talented. Kina's claim to fame was entering the Doritos Crash the Super Bowl contest with Interscope Records back in 2008, and winning!
I've been fortunate enough to see her twice now in concert at the Varsity Theatre in Minneapolis, MN. The first time I saw her in concert is also where I was introduced to Imaginary Future, formerly known as Jesse, and is also Kina's husband! Jesse is also an incredibly talented individual who was an awesome, mellow indie/alternative sound.
If you don't know either of these artist you should totally check them out!
