Amazing, spectacular, superb, and a job well done, are all words that can be used to describe the performance that A Great Big World did on Monday night, at the House of Blues in Cleveland, Ohio. Playing to a sold out crowd, songs off their recently released album "Is There Anybody Out There" (2014). The stylish duo gave concert goers a performance packed with pop-rock, up tempo beats and stage theatrics, that their fans are sure to be speaking of for days to come.
Before A Great Big World took the stage, a relatively unknown girl group, Someones Secret dazzled the crowd with their perfectly pitched voices and smooth harmonies. You can bet that after their tour run with A Great Big World they won't be a secret anymore.
The Cambridge room at the House of Blues was busting at its seams, as fans filled the room to capacity, so they could get a glimpse at the young men ( Ian Axel and Chad Vaccarino) behind one of today's biggest ballad hit song "Say Something". This song has touched many people, as it has been played live and on radio stations across the country. The song was written a few years ago, and begin to gain momentum when Ian was contacted by the TV show So You Think You Can Dance for use. It wasn't until after singer/song writer Christina Aguilera seen the performance on SYTYCD and asked to collaborate on the track. She along with A Great Big World performed the song on The Voice and that's when it really took off, shooting to the #1 spot on the iTunes chart. To date the song has over thirty five million view on YouTube. It was one of four songs in 2013 that reached the Top 10 in less than four weeks and was confirmed double platinum.
Their story is what dreams are made of, just two starry eyed college kids dreaming of success in the music industry, whose dreams one day, do become a reality. Make no mistake, A Great Big World will not be another "one hit" wonder, with a new album full of hits and selling out concert venues across the country. These guys are poised to see the fruits of their labor for years to come.
