    AtLas' True Hip Hop Artist Love this YouTube Review? Comment Below and Share it! http://goo.gl/N3sdHU or  http://TheINDIEgatorMag.com/?p=4654 by Kitty Y. WilliamsAt last, the Queen has done it! We are too excited about her debut Album release Hieroglyphics In Crayon. It popped on the scene in late 2014 and Yessss! Hip Hop is saved.I’ve been following Bronx, NY native AtLas’ since 2006 and she even came all the way down to Houston to put on a show at an event of mine in 2007. Unfortunately, I was slipping in my fandom until someone on Twitter sent me the YouTube video from her September 2014 album release party. Man! She’s still got it, she’s still got it and a new look too! LOVE <3 button. AtLas' aka Polaryss' lyrical flow and Freestyling skills are BANANAS! She rocks the crowd as the Professional she is; someone who knows the true meaning of being an Entertainer. I absolutely ADORE seeing this queen LIVE. AtLas' music tends to include a mix of crazy life

    Natalie Brown Singer/Songrwriter Love this YouTube Review? Comment Below and Share it! http://goo.gl/hLCvy9 or  http://TheINDIEgatorMag.com/?p=4632by Kitty Y. WilliamsYou know that feeling you get when you click on the radio somewhere and you hear a song from back in the day that just turns you on and you start dancing around all crazy talking about “That’s my jam. That’s my JAM!” Yeah, you know. That's how I feel when I listen to Canadian Singer Natalie Brown's music. I’ll be honest, I stopped turning on the traditional radio a long time ago other than to zone out to Jazz. So I certainly love when I accidentally come across a Vocalist like Natalie Brown online. I was just browsing on Facebook one night and saw that one of my friends had liked her This Christmas album release. So I checked it out then went to her website, checked out more YouTube videos and started rockin' out. I was like "YEAH! I LIKE this chick!" I sat there and listened to some of her entire

  • YouTube Picks: Joshua Ledet (Editor’s Review)

    Joshua Ledet Singer/American Legend ©Facebook.com/JoshLedet Let’s see, how do I sum this up in one paragraph or less? #Emotional #Breathtaking #Chills #Chills #Chills. Love this YouTube Review? Comment Below and Share it! http://goo.gl/Z0Ru7b or http://TheINDIEgatorMag.com/?p=4611 by Kitty Y. Williams Seriously, as I worked on the final pages of The INDIEgator's 6th issue, I sat there listening and rocking out to music on Joshua's SoundCloud page for hours wondering “Why do I have chills, again?” Every single time. See, I finally gave in and let my mom become friends with me on Facebook. Not one regret. One night she shared a YouTube video of Joshua Ledet performing Percy Sledge’s hit “When A Man Loves A Woman” at the White House in 2013. Ooh my! The passion in his eyes, in his movements, the emotion in that VOICE! I threw my panties at the screen. Then I left, came back and did it again. Don't judge me. Don’t act like I was the only one. Forgive me Lord. God

  • YouTube Picks: Mani Hoffman (Editor’s Review)

    Mani Hoffman Singer/Songwriter/Producer Credits:  Georges Baird Love this YouTube Review? Comment Below and Share it! http://goo.gl/dSK85o or http://TheINDIEgatorMag.com/?p=4587 by Kitty Y. Williams Oh, oh, oh! Whoo! I’m sorry but excuse me while I catch my breath. I’m sure you’ve seen the video. It’s been going crazy all over social media since right before the New Year; and I mean literally right on time. French Singer, Songwriter and Producer Mani Hoffman shared a video of himself covering Sam Cooke‘s song “A Change is Gonna Come”. Was I the only one who clutched my chest within 3 seconds of him starting to sing? Ok okay, maybe I need to get that checked out. But my ears work just fine and even the baby was blown away by the depth and emotion in Mani's powerful voice! Ooh Honey! His raw talent is amazing and I find it so beautiful that he included his baby in the making of this video. And did you see how this true performer did not even miss a beat

  • YouTube Picks: Amanda Cole (Editor’s Review)

    Article Short Link: http://TheINDIEgatorMag.com/?p=4236 Singer/Songwriter/Actress, Amanda Cole. Image © CSP Music Group. Amanda Cole Singer/Songwriter by Kitty Y. Williams One of the most Profoundly Powerful Voices I have ever come across on YouTube is that of Amanda Cole. Her “Pretty Hurts” (Beyonce) cover came onto my radar and immediately I found myself rushing to find more of her videos. Ms. Cole is certainly No Amateur. Her Professionalism is very evident while watching her work and hit every intended note with pure precision. Just as a side note, she was even a member of the R&B group En Vogue for a few years. This is a Gifted Queen right here. I await her Single Be That, the EP Fairytale and an interview with The INDIEgator. I too want to learn more about the journey of this Extraordinary Singer, Writer and Actress. Editor's YouTube Picks (April/June 2014)

  • YouTube Picks: IceJJFish (Editor’s Review)

    Article Short Link: http://TheINDIEgatorMag.com/?p=4254 IceJJFish YouTube Star YouTube Star, IceJJFish. Image © Instagram.com/icejjfish by Kitty Y. Williams Whether Daniel “IceJJFish” McLoyd considers himself a serious Musician or a Comedian who enjoys playing with people’s perceptions of him, one thing is for sure. He knows how to grab attention and keep you coming back thirsty looking for more. He knows how to keep people talking about him and his Art. Yes, I said it. Art. It is truly an art form to go after your dream and capture a nation’s love, or even ridicule. While some viewers have said he sounds “...like a thousand angels melded into one voice!”, that and his dance moves have remained open for debate by many. Either way, he’s surrounded by sexy ladies, always. I remain confused yet intrigued. Now that is power! You can find him online under @IceJJfish on most social media websites.

  • Special Event: Valentines Day Review 2013

    Mag Editor Kitty Y. Williams, Event Organizer Jazzy Red and Musician C-Bank$ at Coles of Houston 2/14/2013. by Kitty Y. Williams Family Reunion On Valentines Day 2013, The INDIEgator Magazine was invited out by Jazzy Red Productions and Butterflies Creation to celebrate a night of love and good music with a magnificent feast provided by Comfort Food Caterers and their über hot Server who made sure my plate was overflowing with all of Jazzy's good cooking. I'd have to say it was the probably the most enjoyable Valentine's Day I've had in a while. Part of my excitement was the nostalgia from reuniting with so many people like my old friends Jazzy Red and C-Bank$ whom I hadn't seen in a few years and Molew Designs who was there vending custom made earrings. There were several other beautiful people we got the opportunity to meet as well including DJ H-Town Butta and Emcee/Promoter Yolanda B who came down from Austin for the event. Old School Style After everyone had a chance to
