Lindsey Stirling Makes Triumphant Return On America’s Got Talent 2014

“Lindsey Stirling Performs ‘Shatter Me’ With Lzzy Hale – America’s Got Talent 2014”

Lindsey Stirling is something of a music industry phenomenon.

She faced strong rejection from the music industry including an earlier appearance on America’s Got Talent in which she was kicked off the show.

She then took her violin and dance act to YouTube where, working with video maker Devin Graham, she built a huge following. The below video is an example of one of her most popular currently with over 46 million plays!

As more and more people are realizing in the music industry, if you go direct to your fans and keep building that relationship, you can bypass the gatekeepers entirely or choose to work with them later on when they capitulate as America’s Got Talent did last night.

It’s another sweet victory for Lindsey Stirling whose album Shatter Me debuted at no. 2 on the Billboard Albums chart.
