You Oughta Know
December YOK Artist Hozier was surrounded by angels at the 2014 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, which aired last night. But the dark-haired soulster was a true pro and held his composure. Hunched over the microphone with his wild hair let down, the singer serenaded the models with “Take Me To Church.” Clad in an all black ensemble hanging on his slim frame, Hozier played the “bad boy” while the angels strutted past him, throwing their hands up during the chorus and singing along where they knew the words.
This month’s You Oughta Know artist Hozier has been dominating music and television. His critically acclaimed single “Take Me To Church” has earned him his first Grammy nomination and the number one spot on Spotify’s global chart. He’s also performed on the iconic Saturday Night Live and Victoria Secret’s Fashion Show stages, and recently sold out New York City’s famous Irving Plaza Venue.
YOK artist Echosmith made a video of the crazy time when they performed at both YOK Live In Concert and The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon in one day— and we love it. You can watch the charming video above, but be sure to watch it all the way through if you want to hear the band’s new single, “Bright.”
Sam Smith, Hozier, and Ed Sheeran are among the seven You Oughta Know artists who have earned nominations for the 2015 GRAMMY Awards.
