Artist Biography You could take the easy route and just say that Nicole Cross is a YouTube sensation. But in reality she is much more, although everything did start on YouTube. In 2012 she put her first cover versions of familiar hits online, and her unique voice quickly got attention. Her videos have racked up 145 million clicks since then, and Nicole’s interpretation of Adele’s “Hello” even made a fan out of Hollywood star Ashton Kutcher, who enthusiastically shared the video on Facebook. Nicole performed in Malaysia and made it onto the charts in countries that no one knew even had charts, from Papua New Guinea to the Cayman Islands, from Taiwan to Peru.
