Side Note: I’m still looking for 1 or 2 more sponsors of my coverage of HIMSS. Let me know if you’re interested.
I’m really excited to announce that 2010 Grammy Award winning artist Colbie Caillat will be the entertainment at the New Media Kick Off Event at MEDecision Party at the Aquarium. I just love Colbie Caillat’s song “Bubly” and the song off her new album “Fallin’ for You.” She’s the perfect singer for a networking event like this at HIMSS.
Signups for the New Media Kick Off Event at HIMSS are full of a lot of really interesting people. If you’re planning to attend, make sure you register here. Food, Drinks, Colbie Caillat and great people. That’s what I’m talking about.
About Colbie Caillat
Armed simply with her dusky vocals and acoustic guitar, Colbie Caillat and her homespun music continue to resonate with listeners and win new fans. Little more than a year after the release of her nearly double platinum debut album “CoCo,” Caillat has quickly made such an enduring impact that USA Today declared the California girl a vital part of “a new wave of troubadours luring fans of all ages into a peaceful, easy feeling.” At the core of Caillat’s appeal are her honesty and lack of pretense. And her intense desire to create a body of work that resonates from the first note to the last.
“CoCo” debuted at No. 5 on Billboard’s Top 200 albums chart and remained in the top 20 of the chart more than half a year after the CD’s release. The single “Bubbly” spent a staggering 14 weeks at No. 1 on Billboard’s Adult Top 40 chart and four weeks atop the Adult Contemporary chart. “Bubbly” has also been certified platinum; signaling sales of more than 2.6 million downloads. Second single “Realize,” about a friend, who was secretly in love with Caillat, was also a huge hit. And the third is proving to be the charm as “Little Things” is following the path of its predecessors.
Since the album’s debut, Caillat has been a constant fixture on the road in the U.S., Europe, Australia and Asia. She’s alternated between headlining her own sold-out concerts and opening for such artists as John Mayer, one of her major influences. When she’s not on stage, she usually can be found with guitar in hand, writing.
