Julia Nunes rocks my world.

Ms. Nunes plays a variety of cover songs and original works in YouTube videos. And she is simply delightful. There is something effervescent in the palpable joy that she brings to her music. You can see it in her face and hear it in her voice. It’s a joy that’s infectious. It leaps from her voice and into your heart.

Let me show you the two videos that turned my into a raging fanboy:



Every time I watch the video I’m impressed anew by the fact that, after starting the song with the wrong lyric, she simply starts again. It’s not just about her self-confidence as a performer in that moment — it’s about the entire atmosphere it creates: “Hey, I’m gonna play some music. Wanna listen? I like this song. Let’s have some fun.”

No matter how many times I listen to that song, in that moment I always accept her offer: I start having fun.



Convinced? Good. Come join the rest of us. We’re having a marvelous time.

    Oh I think I know why she is so popular. Yeah the talents and showmanship are there, but what made her standout from all the rest of the YouTube performers are video and sounds splicing.

    I am also a Julia Nunes fan. There are a number of good uke players on YouTube. I just think she may be the most entertaining. Her cover of -It’s Raining Men- just kills me when she opens with the line, “Well, it’s not a song about monogamy.”

    Julia is possibly my favorite internet performer right now, and definitely the best I’ve seen on YouTube.

    She always looks like she’s having too much fun to care if everything is going perfectly, which is highly endearing.

    A cute musician girl with great showmanship, what’s not to like?
