My Grammy Moment: Ann Marie Calhoun

#1 Post by Mikey » Mon Jan 21, 2008 6:38 pm

Some of you may have seen that the Foo Fighters are running a contest where young musicians are invited to submit a video of them playing "The Pretender", and possibly win a chance to perform it with the Foos on the GRAMMYs on Feb 10th.

Our very own friend, little sister and String Theories band member Ann Marie Calhoun is one of the entrants. You can see her amazing video here:

The public gets to vote on the finalists in a few days, and if Annie is selected, you can vote for her too!

We'll update this thread with more info in the coming days.

Oh yeah. I watched it the other night. She is a terror, and did I mention a total class act. Thanks for keeping us posted, Mikey!

Both Annie (YouTube username: theboggster) and Scheila Gonzalez from the Zappa Palys Zappa band (YouTube username: ZPZSAX) are quarterfinalists in the "My Grammy Moment" contest.

You can vote for them HERE:

I just watched all the video's and I must say that Ann Marie's stands out as the best, both musically and visually.

Let's show some love to "Vai's little sister" by voting for her like mad.

Once you go to the my grammy moment site (listed above), and click "Vote Now", type theboggster in the search window to see her video. You can then continue to click the small icon that appears below her video and vote over and over again.

Let's watch Ann Marie on the Grammy's!

You have to click next video until she comes up again, then you can vote again. I guess you could search it again and it would work the same.

I'm not sure what you mean by "grayed out"? When I search for theboggster, a small icon appears. When I click on it, Ann Marie's video starts playing. I can then vote, and click on the icon again to start the process over.

Also, if you watch the video to the end the is a replay option.
