COVER SONG: "Hello / Alive" - Adele / Sia MASHUP (Official Music Video)


WHOA THAT TITLE IS A MOUTHFUL. But an exciting mouthful because GUYS!!!! Today I’m releasing my FIRST EVER MASHUP COVER. WOOOO!! Since the first time I heard these two lovely songs – Hello by Adele and Alive by Sia – played within close proximity to each other I was like “ASDFHJKL; MASHUP OMG” and so obviously I had to create one. And obviously I had to record it. And obviously I had to make a music video for it (with the help of my amazing dad, of course.)

I’M SO STOKED TODAY Y’ALL AND TOTALLY NERVOUS SO BRB EATING WAFFLES AND HIDING UNDER MY BED LIKE A SMALL KITTEN. You guys mean so much to me. I make this stuff for y’all, but believe me when I say I HAVE AN ENORMOUS AMOUNT OF FUN DOING IT. Still. The fun wouldn’t be complete without throwing an end product at your face (along with some waffles of course) and very coherently saying: SHLJKASFPOWJNVLKJVS;LKAS.

Check out the music video below and/or listen on SoundCloud!

  10. ABBIE. I CAN'T WORD. WHAT ARE WORDS. *flails* THIS WAS THE EPITOME OF AMAZINGNESS AND THE WAFFLE QUEEN HAS SOMEHOW MANAGED TO HIT A WHOLE NEW LEVEL OF AWESOMENESS. WHAT EVEN IS THIS PHENOMENON. *tosses confetti and waffles and glitter all over the room*

    Seriously, I think this was the BEST BEST BEST music video you've ever done and I LOVED it to death, oh gracious. Not only was your voice OUT OF THIS WORLD, but the visuals were STUNNING. And the MASHUP. Oh my goodness, it was GLORIOUS. I totally excepted your mashup to be good and amazing and mind-blowing, but not THIS incredible. YOU DID SMASHINGLY, GIRL. *all the highfives*. I'm totally going to be sharing about this in my monthly highlights post (which is now late because I have the brain of a goldfish and forgot that it needed to be done, haha xD).

    ANYWAYS. There was my long rant about the beautifulness that you have created and which I love to death. THANK YOU FOR THIS, ABBIE. IT IS GORGEOUS, GORGEOUS, GORGEOUS - and so are you, girl! <3 <3 <3

  19. I had never heard alive but wow did that make an amazing new song mashed together! it took hello beyond just a love song lol. and the video is incredible, teach me your secretsss lol. honestly I just saw an (assumedly, it was a signed musician) professional music video that was, like, 128930000 times less good than this. it's just gorgeous, and your face definitely doesn't hurt ;)

    Ok I don't know how you feel about this topic so I'm just going to go for it- have you had any voice lessons?! I feel like there is so much in your voice and that could be unlocked to new levels of amazing with training!! like untapped goodness in there that would elevate your raw talent to really masterful artistry. Like it's so so so sooooo pretty now, PLEASE don't get me wrong. You're really, really good and I admire the fact that you are recording and everything, SO MUCH! It's just that, as someone who has trained some, I'm hearing even more potential than you're already reaching and that just thrills me!! there are so many more levels in your voice I feel and it would be awful if you damaged it just out of having improper technique or something like that! plus, you'd be improving on a voice that is already so unique and fabulous, it couldn't help but get even better! I reallllllyy hope this doesn't offend you or worse, discourage you <3 because girl you're doing great and I mean that, that's why I'm saying all this! As a fellow singer I just want you to be the absolute best you can be and I can honestly see you going so far with music that I had to just ask. xx nina

    1. EEEEP THANK YOU SO MUCH NINA!! *gives you waffles* Seriously that means so much to me. :') Oh, don't worry I'm totally not offended!! I appreciate you mentioning that. I did take voice lessons for a short time and continue to study areas where I can improve and hone my talent into something ever better. :) I try to take care to be very kind with my voice so I don't damage anything, and I do believe that practice makes perfect above all else...but thank you for pointing that out!! And thank you for listening! Your encouraging words really mean a lot to me. <3

  24. I watched this video first thing yesterday morning, And AHAUDIKSBABANKDJSIIWKAJAHABAVANAHAHAGAHBSNSKDFJASAFGHKSJSHAJAJHAHDHHSJAJHSJSJAHGHDUEBBAJFISIKAJAJJDBBJSKAKSKRUJOWISHBDBDJSJHAHSKIFJSH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!??!??!!!!!!!!!!¡!!!!!¡¡!!!

    SERIOUSLY!! Chills. The whole time I was watching it and for quite a few seconds afterwards. I have been singing this song (well, what words I know... And nah nah naaaahing the rest) all day long and just thinking about how amazing it is and you are and GAAAAHHHH!!!!!!!! TOO BEAUTIFUL FOR WORDS!!!!!!!!!!!!

    This song couldn't have come at a better time. I have decided to post more on my blog, and have been writing so many songs lately and wanting to share them but I keep falling back down. I feel like I'm flying with my lofty aspirations and then I fall in one single moment. The moment I am too scared to tell my siblings "yeah I wrote that song". Because I'm afraid they'll laugh, they'll not care, they'll tell someone else and who knows what they will think??!?!?!
    It weird that I am fine with sharing my self with total strangers on the internet, but I won't even share with my family. Odd that. And definitely should change. But it's hard.
    "I'm alive. I'm alive. I'm alive."
    The words I want so bad to scream and sing from the rooftops. I want it to be known, but I am so so deathly scared.
    This song was just like...
    BOOM. For lack of a better word. Like a hit-you-right-in-the-heart-but-in-the-best-way-possible
    And although it was hard for me to catch all the words, due to bad earphones and bad internet, I could FEEL them. I could feel the raw openness of your words and I felt you singing right to me. I felt ME singing right along with you.
    "I'm alive. I'm alive! I'm alive!!"
    I've been to the demons and back.
    And they told me I was dead. They told me I would never make it. I believed them. I've been listening to my demons but they are nothing but lies. And I'm alive. And I have nothing to fear.
    Because when I was alone in the dark with the demons on all sides, curled in a ball and hiding my face, drenching the floor with tears-
    There was light. A sliver of light that send the demons running. And sliver of hope that made me get up and out.
    And I'm dirty. I am scratched and broken and dirty... But I'm alive.
    Hell and back. Been there, done that.
    But not alone.

    Wow. That got really deep really fast. Sorry about that.
    Anyway.
    The other thing that I think about EVERY time I listen to your music is: WE NEED TO SING TOGETHER SOMETIME!!!!!! I NEED MUSIC LESSONS FROM YOU!!!!!!!! BOOKING THE NEXT FLIGHT TO YOUR DOOR AND SIGNING UP AS HELPER FOR WHATEVER YOU NEED AND PAYING STUDENT. WHAT DATES ARE GOOD FOR YOU??
    Okay, slightly kidding. As AWESOME as that would be, it wouldn't work out, I know. DON'T REMIND ME!!!! But STILL!!! Let me dream.

    Abbiee Abbiee Abbiee my dear, you have done it once again. You have shaken me to my core.
    Thanks for that. <3 <3

    My excitement calls for a list!!!!

    1. You are the MASTER at vlogging and I would totally watch more hint hint!!!!?????

    2. Your hair is gorgeous

    3. Mirror Girl is liked my favorite thing ever

    4. Clearly I need to listen to more Amber Run

    5. Have thou seen Priceless with the For King And Country dudes??? I know you are a fan so maybe you would like it???? It's rather indie but I thought they did a great job with what they had.

  31. ABBIEEEEEEEEEE!!!! OMG! Adele is one of the few secular artists I respect for her talented vocals and you slayed "Hello". I had never heard "Alive" before, but you did amazing on that too! I am so jealous of the huskiness in your voice and then you just jump right up to those high notes with beautiful purity! You clearly have a God-given gift for singing and I can't wait to hear more!
