Photo Flash: Future 'Cinderella' Carly Rae Jepsen Visits Birdland Jazz Club
Pop superstar and soon-to-be Cinderella Carly Rae Jepsen has been making her presence known around Birdland, the iconic music room. Last night, after catching Matt Baker's sold-out Tribute to Oscar Peterson, the jazz fan revealed that she has enjoyed several concerts at the venue, even catching Cast Party, the weekly open mic!
Canadian singer/songwriter Jepsen has taken America by storm after bursting onto the scene in the US with her hit single "Call Me Maybe." Unforgettably catchy, the hit song which she co-wrote quickly rose to the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart where it remained for nine consecutive weeks. The song is also an international sensation, climbing to No. 1 on the iTunes Singles charts in over 47 countries while the song has sold over 17 million singles worldwide to date.
She released her debut album Kiss in 2012 via 604 Records/School Boy Records/Interscope Records, and won the American Music Award for Best New Artist along with two GRAMMY nominations that same year for Best Pop Solo Performance and Song of the Year. After supporting multi-platinum pop/R&B artist Justin Bieber on tour in the U.S and Europe, Carly hit the road on her first headline tour of the US, which wrapped earlier this year and she is now working on her new album for release in 2014.
