  • Young Brit singer on YouTube is more popular than Coldplay, Radiohead

    A young British singer has become a YouTube sensation and she is even more popular than bands Coldplay and Radiohead.

    Kate McGill's song videos have been viewed a staggering 22 million times, and she has 130,000 followers who have subscribed to her uploads, more than the two hit British rock bands.

    Her music has caused such a stir all over the world that she has now recorded an album, working with songwriter Ted Bruner, who has had hits with pop stars Katy Perry, 26, and Miley Cyrus, 18.

    "I don't think it will ever sink in how insane it's all been. Now I have a crazy following all over the world. Originally I had no intention of becoming a singer, I wanted to be a professional dancer," the Daily Star quoted McGill, 22, from Plymouth, Devon, as saying.

    "I always enjoyed singing but I never thought myself to be good enough," she stated.

    The singer-songwriter, who plays the guitar and piano, has uploaded more than 100 videos onto YouTube, and the video of her debut single, 'Replaced', has already been viewed more than 81,000 times.

    She has more than 43,000 Facebook fans, and over 15,000 Twitter followers, and she said that the support she was getting was one of the reasons she has continued to upload her videos.

    "Without the online thing I would be nowhere. I think the online world is such a big part of this generation and it can only grow," she added.
