VIDEO: Ariana Grande Covers Imogen Heap "For Now"
Ariana Grande, Nickelodeon starlet, sings Imogen Heap’s “For Now” in a video she recently posted to YouTube.
Grande posted the heartfelt rendition of “For Now” on Wednesday with the message, “Enjoy! I love Imogen Heap with all my heart. I know I’m not supposed to use these foot pedals like this but it works lol.” In order to achieve the unique sound of Heap’s song, Grande layered her vocals as well as a clap rhythm. Her impressive musical skill coupled with the pure sound of her voice really showcases the 19-year-old’s talent.
Grande got her start on Broadway at the age of 15 playing Charlotte in the Broadway musical 13. In 2010, she got the role of Cat Valentine on the Nickelodeon show Victorious, a role that she will be reprising in Sam & Cat – a combined spinoff of Victorious and iCarly that will begin airing later this year. “Everybody seems to think that it’s about babysitting,” she said. “But it’s really just about two girls going on crazy adventures, just like Drake & Josh or Keenan & Kel,” Grande told Hollywood Life. “Two good friends going through crazy stuff together and having a good time.”
Grande has a studio album in the works, and is set to debut sometime in 2013.
