New York born/New Jersey raised artist Zewdy is another product of the DIY YouTube approach. She has an amazing tone and sings pretty much every song almost effortlessly. Visit her YouTube channel to see for yourself.
She writes on her profile: "I tried out for American Idol 5 times - never made it past the 1st round."
I'm not sure if she'll be successful with her current independent deal but its only a matter of time before someone big steps in and picks her up. She has a dope attitude and an original image. I'm betting Akon will have something to do with it when it happens.
The above video is her debut single "I Don't Wanna Wait". Which she has also made free to download.
