Orianthi has had quite the year. After performing with Carrie Underwood at the Grammy’s, she sparked Michael Jackson’s interest, having him invite her to audition for his upcoming tour. Unfortunately, the tour never happened, but Orianthi has been making a name for herself ever since.
I sat down with Ori yesterday before her performance at Best Buy in New York’s Union Square where she filled me in on working with Jackson, jamming with one of her idols, Carlos Santana, and her most recent chart-topping single, “According To You.” Stay tuned for my interview in the upcoming weeks and video of her performance.
Orianthi will be performing at 4 p.m. today at Jingle Ball’s pre-show at Hammerstein Ballroom, but if you can’t make that give her single, “According To You” a listen below.
I’ll be covering Jingle Ball tonight and have access to the press room for artist interviews. Tonight’s lineup includes: John Mayer, Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber, The Fray, Jordan Sparks, Kris Allen, Boys Like Girls, Pitbull, Owl City, Jay Sean, Ke$ha and more.
