The Disney Life “Kylie Cantrall”

Kylie

There are kids all around the world who dream of being on Disney and how cool that would be. A young lady living in LA is one of these kids. Kylie Cantrall is a clever and quirky twelve-year-old whose whole existence is primarily based around Disney .  Those who follow her on social media knows how true this is. Many people may recognize  her on social media as, “Hello Kylie”. If you are one of these people, then you know her obsession. The Disney life is what she was born to live.

Kylie is one of those people who seems to be literally born talented, it all flows through her naturally. She is ridiculously funny, quick witted and extremely smart. Kylie is also a sensational vocalist, certainly one of the best in her age group. This appears to be natural as well. In the interview she said, “I guess you can say I never really started singing,  it was just always there. I started recording as early as two years old”. How crazy is that, recording at two! That’s awesome. With her dad being a music producer, singing was in her blood.

Outside of Kylie’s music videos, she performs live as well. She has performed a great deal live, and she says opening up for Post Malone was one of her favorites. “I was only ten, and he was playing a sold out event in Orange County, 5 thousand people! And at first they were like,  What’s this little kid doing on stage”, says Kylie. Needless to say, everyone at the sold out show loved her.

Songwriting is another skill she has been showing off, and can be heard in the lyrics in her song, “Shake”. This song was co-written by her along with Dwight Watson and Jeff Hoeppner. This song flows very well and it will get stuck in your head. She said this is a cut loose and have a good time song. Part of the reason she wrote the song, was because of her addiction to chocolate milkshakes. (who isn’t right)

The video for “Shake” is a blast to watch, the choreography is brilliant. The idea for the video came from Kylie along with the director Nayip Ramos. It was all filmed in a warehouse in North Hollywood. She says they went that morning and bought all the plants Home Depot had, shot the video and then returned them. (That’s funny, but clever). Whoever hasn’t seen this video yet needs to check it out, it carries a good Disney vibe. Kids will love it.

Currently, Kylie has four songs recorded and published. She says, she is always working on new material and is in the process of signing her first label deal. For now she cannot say what her new single will be that’s coming out, but she says, “It’s gonna be Hot”! Also she has some pop songs, trap music, and will even be singing in Spanish, a little something for everyone.

Kylie is a huge Disney fan and has been lucky to spend a great deal of her time there. “It feels like a second home” says Kylie. Her Disney dreaming is paying off. Soon there’s an  episode of Bizaardvark that will air Kylie will be in. In this episode, Kylie will be playing Tessa, Bernie Shots assistant. “I have some great funny moments joking” says Kylie. Keep an eye out for this episode, you don’t want to miss it.

Being a huge Disney fan she does have some favorites, one of them is, Raven’s Home. One of the reasons Kylie likes this show so much is, one of her friends is on it, Sky Katz. (Sky co-stars on Raven’s Home and prior to that on America’s Got Talent rapping, awesome rapper) Kylie says Sky is one of the coolest people she knows.

TV has already been a big part of her life with her first TV show being at seven years old. Her mom works for a station called, Estrella TV. Her mom helped her to get on one of the dance shows. Since then, she has been on a couple other shows and commercials. “I really love the TV side of entertainment” says Kylie.

Along with music videos, she has also been producing a series called, Hello Kylie. She now has twelve episodes and they are all hilarious. In these episodes she talks about things or people she likes. They are mostly music related and will usually find her singing and dancing to some of her favorite songs. One of her favorites to produce was episode 12, Pentatonix.  “I got to cast a bunch of kids my age to play the “Kid Version” of the Pentatonix. We shot that whole Episode in our living room” says Kylie. It was a family production, her and her dad came up with the outline and her mom did the hair and make-up.  This episode is a blast to watch.

Even when Kylie is not making videos, she is always doing something that is fun and entertaining. When Kylie was asked what other fun things she likes do, here is what she said: “I have three main passions right now: Watching scary movies, playing “Fortnight” and developing my skills as a “Baby Goat Whisperer”. LOL
People often ask me what its like being a “Goat Whisperer”? I say “it not BahahahahaD. Its’ obvious she is just a blast all the time.

Kylie is well gifted in many areas of entertainment, along with a huge personality. Her creativity and vision is well beyond her years. Watching her videos, her delivery does not appear to be scripted, just all ad-lib. She has the likability factor that will take her a long way in entertainment. However, her natural ability with comedy, dance and singing will launch her career further than Zendaya. Any network could easily create a show around Kylie, it would be a household hit. Keep watching for more great things from Kylie.

Country music recording artist, Jasmine McDonald has been working hard cranking out original songs and videos over the past year. Jasmine’s singing of cover songs has turned heads for a longtime, but now, it’s time to change. The change Jasmine is making, is easing out some cover songs, for songs of her very own. 

People have been enjoying Jasmine’s singing from Florida to Tennessee and everywhere in between. Now with three songs of her own making, all of her fans will have a new love for her, and her music. Jasmine’s new songs are, Bet Your Heart On Me, Key To A Young Girls Heart, and My Time To Shine. All three songs will keep you smiling and tapping your foot all the way through. Her delivery of these songs makes you believe the story she is telling. Any young person listening will be able to identify with the lyrics, it fits them all. 

Jasmine has created videos with each song and in doing so, there were different aspects of the process she enjoyed for each one. One of the things she enjoyed about, Bet Your Heart On Me was that it was her first, and she played the mandolin. “I loved, Key To A Young Girls Heart too, because my friend Selton Tison and I got to play in the stream”, says Jasmine. Her favorite however was her newest, My Time To Shine. She liked this one so well because it was in Nashville. Jasmine had her family were in it, and it made her feel like a star signing autographs. 

Jasmine’s producer is Jack Molette and videographer is Dustin Jenkins, both are a regular at the Country Tonite Theater in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. Jasmine met them both while she was at the theater competing in NACMAI. She won several awards for her performances and in doing so, she caught the attention of Jack and Dustin.  

Along with her producer, Jasmine is also lending a hand when it comes to her writing songs. “I get my ideas for new songs on a whim, they just come in my head”, says Jasmine. She keeps everything she needs close by her bed, guitar, pen and paper just in case she wakes up during the night with an idea. Jasmine has about ten songs already written. “I am always writing” says Jasmine. More videos for the songs are in the planning too, so be on the look out for them.

Having a dream and working hard for it brings success, and this is all true for Jasmine as well. “My dream is just smile! I love to see people smile when I sing” says Jasmine. Someday Jasmine hopes to have a recording contract, and go to a CMT award show. To sing at the Grand Ole Opry is also high on her dream list, as well as opening for a major artist like, George Straight, Loretta Lynn or Dolly Parton. “Someday I will have my own bus and go on tour, but it is all in God’s hands, so wherever he leads me I will go” says Jasmine. Big dreams come with big rewards and some of those rewards have been coming Jasmine’s way. 

Over the past few years many good things have come to be in Jasmine’s favor. She has won awards and produced three amazing original songs. Her song My Time To Shine has truth in it. She is shinning and there’s been doors opening for her. No matter how many no’s she gets, she pushes on. The prize she is gazing at is not far out of reach and she is getting closer to it everyday. It is Jasmine’s time to shine, and she is getting brighter everyday.
