RED

Location: Glasgow

RED is a 22-year-old from Glasgow with a mighty 14 million YouTube views under her belt. Covering everything from Lady Gaga to Little Mix, her channel is pure pop perfection!

While modern day pop diva Ariana Grande might be RED's idol, she also takes inspiration from Motown legend Stevie Wonder and vocal powerhouse, Whitney Houston.

She's found the industry a tough one to crack, but has used YouTube as a direct connection to her fans. "It's where it's at right now, you can promote yourself from the comfort of your own home without a budget or a record label. That's pretty amazing."
