Video of the week: Ingrid Michaelson, “Breakable”

November 2, 2007

That1guywhosings, a YouTuber, made this video of Ingrid Michaelson’s “Breakable.” He got the images from Getty and showed the video to Ingrid, who said she liked it.

This synchronization of photos to the music is simply outstanding. And I can’t get enough of this song.

uTunes: Ingrid Michaelson “The Way I Am” on YouTube

November 2, 2007

I love this singer. Ingrid Michaelson, who is more of a presence on MySpace, is really fantastic — I can’t believe a major label hasn’t signed her yet! What are they waiting for?

Her music has been included in an Old Navy commercial and on Grey’s Anatomy. Her music sells, pretty well, on iTunes. She keeps 2/3 of the $.99 for each download, much more than she would get if under contract with a music label. You can listen to an NPR interview of Ingrid here.
