This article has a good collection of artists using social media. It’s a sampling of people out there that are doing well getting recognized for their art through the internet. It’s helpful to see real examples of how artists are using social media, and the example of the conductor, Eric Whitacre, was pretty interesting. If you go to his website you can see the song mentioned in this article. He takes 3746 videos from people that submitted of themselves all singing the same song and puts it together to make a virtual choir, which is pretty ridiculous and amazing. These are the things you would never know about (and would never happen) without the Internet and social media.
