What’s The Buzz ?
Chantelle, Scott Whyte and Natalie Moran joined together for a night of concert and festivities for Pinktober® at The Hard Rock Cafe Hollywood on October 13. Followers of HorizonVU Music know Chantelle and Scott. Natalie Moran, soprano, and a native Southern Californian, is best known for her vocal quality, comedic character roles, and her musical and theatrical dedication. This past spring, Natalie received a Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance from the University of Southern California Thornton School of Music where she studied with Shigemi Matsumoto.
Chantelle was on lead vocals, tambourine, egg, and ukulele. It was her ukulele debut! Scott Whyte was on guitar and vocals. Natalie was on vocals. The trio performed two 40 minute sets including Chantelle’s original songs (Take a Walk with me, Drive, Simple Things, Love, Love Someone, You, etc) and the second was all cover songs (All Night Long, Rock with You, Message in a Bottle, Black Horse and a Cherry Tree).
In addition , there was a birthday in the audience, so Natalie sang Happy Birthday in Italian (opera). And if all that wasn’t enough to please ( it was), they took requests from the audience (Wonderwall).
