Live Dance Performance by Taylor Hatala and Crew

You've seen the 11 year old YouTube dancing sensation Taylor Hatala on Ellen, Ryan Seacrest, and featured in Time Magazine, Huffington Post, MTV, PopSugar and Seventeen Magazine.  Now, you get to see her perform live at YOUth POWER 5!

Starting with ballet and tap at the age of 3, "TayTay" performed her first hip-hop solo at the age of 6 and immediately realized her talent and passion for the genre.  She now has over 100 million combined hits on YouTube, and it seems anything she dances to, instantly goes viral.  We are so pumped to have TayTay perform live at YOUth POWER 5 on June 3!

Live Performance by Julia Nicholson and the Paul Smith Band

We have no doubt that this talented 17 year old singer/songwriter from St. Albert, AB will make a music her career.  Performing live across North America from her local home city of St. Albert all the way to the heart and soul of music, in Nashville, Tennessee, she is definitely showing young artists how to make a business and a career utilizing passion and creativity. 

We are grateful and excited to have Julia perform live at YOUth POWER 5, backed by the ever-talented Paul Smith live band.  This is a live performance showcase not to be missed.
