This #TalentedTuesday is dedicated to the motivational, inspirational and witty Lilly Singh aka Superwoman. I was having a binge-watching YouTube session of the Fine Bros’ REACT channel when I came across Teens React To Superwoman.
So basically this skit is how I found the Superwoman channel.
Now Lilly Singh both in comedian & vlog format has become appointment television (or YouTube-vision) for me. I am happy be apart of the unicorns (what Singh calls her subscribers). Her commentary on life, whether social, advocacy or comical, is spot on. Her videos are a great way for me to cap a busy day or keep company on a lazy day.
Her journey to becoming Superwoman came after a battle with depression she told People magazine.
“I didn’t have goals. I didn’t feel like eating. I was upset for absolutely no reason,” Singh says in the current issue of PEOPLE. “I told myself, ‘You have a choice: Either continue feeling this way or do something to change your life.'”
Singh was at a crossroads between applying for graduate school or attempting the career in entertainment she’d dreamed of since childhood. Singh, now 27, ultimately decided that using YouTube as a creative outlet would not only help her move on from her depression but possibly help others as well.
Singh’s Superwoman persona has landed her channel over seven million YouTube subscribers, a world tour and on February 10th she’s releasing a documentary, A Trip To Unicorn Island, about her tour on YouTubeRed.
Check out the trailer for the film below:
Nearly four months later and I have found myself enjoying many more YouTubers & creators who are apart of Singh’s world (FouseyTube, itsGrace, ConnorFranta, HumbleThePoet & her sister, Tina aka Neurotic Mom Diaries).
“Whuddup T-shirt reference,” “Shemurr,” & #LEH have become part of my vocabulary all courtesy of Lilly Singh.
One love. Thanks Lilly! That is a wrap & zoop.
Look for A Trip To Unicorn Island premiering February 10th on YouTube Red.
