These are just a few of the singers who have come to be known names in the music industry and it has taken years for celebrities like Whitney Houston, Prince and Michael Jackson to gain worldwide recognition. One name that is starting to appear more and more in the media is an artist called Billie Eilish. She is making a name for herself in the music industry, while remaining unique from other celebrities due to the fact that she is currently 18 years old.
Her journey started when she was 14 years old, when her first hit song, “Ocean Eyes”, was released. From that point on, she began to broadcast more popular music and became a guest on television shows seen around the world. She has also sold a world tour and has performed at some of the most recognized awards.
One of his most recent performances was at 62North Dakota Annual Grammy Awards where she walked away with five of the six awards for which she was nominated. She had a unique performance singing her song “When the party is over”.
Passionate fan of Eilish, sophomore Carolina Porto said: “I think her choice of music was interesting. Choosing a song that is not considered her “hit” made people see that she was talented and also made people realize that she is not just a genre. “
Eilish was visibly moved during his Grammy concerts.
Its immense success and popularity make it a success with people of all ages. However, this is not the case with the first year Libby Pirie who is not really a fan.
“I find his music dark and scary,” said Pirie.
Many people think that Eilish’s sound is different from popular “radio” music because of its soft vibe. His use of demonic voices and the modification of his own voice are what many fans find attractive in his music.
From someone who has no opinion on the artist, freshman Kysn Paepke said he “doesn’t understand what she is saying.” Paepke suggested that “mumbling” can reduce the appeal of his music.
Many believe that Eilish’s popularity comes from his soothing words or sounds. “I think people like her songs because they are authentic … she talks about depression, suicidal thoughts and global warming which are not really common themes for the songs and I think a lot of people can understand that, “said Porto.
Whether someone likes Eilish’s music or hates it, everyone is able to reach consensus on its success. Eilish’s success at her age and where she played is an admirable feat. “It’s an impressive achievement at his age,” said Pirie,
Eilish’s music is unique and difficult for some to understand, but it has a growing and dedicated fan base. Eilish performed during the “in memoriam” presentation at 92North Dakota Oscar Awards on February 9.
