WATCH THE VIDEO! I won?t lie to you ? when I was approached to interview singer Charlene Kaye, the light didn?t go on until I discovered that she frequently collaborates on music with Darren Criss.
Criss I recognized ? my 14-year-old daughter and her friends knew him from a 2009 series of viral YouTube music videos known as ?A Very Potter Musical.? Criss plays Harry Potter in the parody ? and he?s quite good in the role. Every teen girl I know knows every word to the ?Potter Musical? songs and freaked out when Criss joined the cast of "Glee." (My daughter, in fact, had never been interested in the Fox show before she heard Criss was on it.)
Not Charlene Kaye.
This young woman has one of the richest, most engaging voices I?ve heard in years. She has a striking style, confidence, and delivery. Charlene just finished playing multiple dates at the 2011 South By Southwest (SXSW) festival in Austin, Texas, and is working on her second album with her band, The Brilliant Eyes.

CHARLENE KAYE audio excerpt: "He's just so charismatic. He handles himself so gracefully. People were swarming him at the Grammys. Everybody wanted a piece of Darren Criss... And it was not bad to be arm candy for Darren Criss. It was amazing."
