YouTube Sensation MIRANDA SINGS Releases 4 Holiday Tunes

Internet sensation Miranda Sings is proud to announce the release of her four-song holiday EP called, appropriately, "Christmas With Miranda Sings." The songs are available for purchase digitally through www.MirandaSingsChristmas.com.

The dazzling diva has put her rather unique spin on Christmas favorites "Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer," "Here Comes Santa Claus," "Carol Of The Bells," and "All I Want For Christmas Is You." Miranda's current YouTube video, created as an infomercial promoting the new recording, already has over 30,000 views! (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FY8D-prWXG4)

Miranda Sings is an internet character created by California-based theatre student Colleen Ballinger, and proliferated via YouTube. The character is a satire of increasingly common YouTube videos featuring mediocre or even bad singers who film themselves singing as a form of self-promotion. Miranda is supposedly from Tacoma, Washington, sings comically off-key, and, when confronted by viewers who take the videos seriously, uses The catchphrase "Haters back off!"

The characterization includes facial tics, unusually active eyebrows and a crooked smile. She also wears lipstick drawn beyond all natural borders and often dances stiffly to the music she is performing. Ms. Ballinger's character has enjoyed widespread popularity, particularly among musical theatre fans, and has recently appeared as Miranda Sings at live club and theater venues in New York (The Minskoff Theatre, Birdland), Los Angeles, London (Ambassador Theatre) and a four-city tour of Australia (Sydney, Melbourne, Newcastle and Brisbane).
