Watch out GRAMMY Camp...

Every summer, the GRAMMY Foundation brings teens from across the nation together at four different locations: Los Angeles, CA; Nashville, TN; Brooklyn, NY; and St. Paul, MN. For just over a week, they are fully immersed in an environment that will prepare them for success in the music industry profession of their choice.

16-year-old Claire Carruthers is a GRAMMY Camp hopeful and an aspiring singer/songwriter. For her audition, she performed two of her own beautifully-crafted originals and two covers of popular songs. Ivory Sky Media's Allen and Tori were onsite to help create an audition video that would be sure to impress the admissions panel. Check out the action below!
