Finally, kids have a back to school theme song.

Yahoo! Music recently premiered her first music video, "Outer Limit," and we were delighted when she came by the Y! office to perform that track unplugged, along with another new tune, "Girlfriend." Hollie also sat down to chat about what she's been up to since "Idol," and wha... | More »

If you turn down the volume of your television while watching Tye Tribbett perform, it would be hard to distinguish him from today's popular R&B and hip-hop stars. Well, no one in his ensemble dresses or dances proactively, but they can hold their own with their unique style of praise, worship and entertainment that is especially evidenced on his fifth album, Greater Than, released this week. As he prepped for the live concert recording dates for the album, he spoke to Yahoo! Music... | More »
