Internet Phenomenon Esmee Denters Signs With Tennman Records
LOS ANGELES, CA. (Top40 Charts/ Tennman Records) - Internet phenomenon and singer/songwriter Esmee Denters is the first signing to Tennman Records. "In completely unpredicted news to all YouTubers and bloggers, we are proud to announce Esmee Denters has signed to Tennman Records and she will be joining me on tour this summer. Esmee is the real deal and I cannot wait for the world to hear her, but all of her fans on YouTube should not worry ... we will keep you in the loop every step of the way," announced today by Justin Timberlake, Chairman/CEO of the label.
"Words can't describe how amazing it is. I am so excited! It is something I have always dreamed of doing. I have to thank YouTube and its viewers for giving me the opportunity to show the world my voice. I also have to thank Justin, one of the biggest artists in the world, for believing in me and making my dreams come true," says Esmee Denters.
Ken Komisar, President of Tennman Records, adds "Esmee is a remarkable talent with a story that anyone with a dream can relate to - it is no wonder she has such an enthusiastic following already. We will keep providing fans with a personal look into Esmee's world throughout the entire creative process, as she continues to write songs for her debut album."

What is the big deal about this girl? Yes she can sing but singing is not just about adding as many twiddles onto the notes as possible. She sounds like every other generic singer I've heard. If you hear Macy Gray in the radio you instantly think "Hey that's Macy Gray!". If you hear Fiona Apple you think "Hey that's Fiona Apple!". Neither of them are the best singers technically but they have STYLE and TALENT. I'm sick of people gushing over unoriginal Christina Aguilera copies. It's so high school.
yeah perez speculated about this and it was confirmed. I'm with you ^. Yes she can sing but I find her a bit bland to be honest. I think you'll see people with better voices on the top ten of American Idol or X Factor so.....
She does have a nice voice...reminds me of how much I suck at singing! Meg, I get what you're saying, she seems to be very similar to what is already out there. I wonder what she will be like after Justin gets through with her.
