Everybody’s watching…Carly Rose Sonenclar’s latest song on YouTube.
The Mamaroneck teen, who was the 2012 runner-up on the TV talent competition ‘X Factor,’ recently posted an in-studio performance of a new song titled “Everybody’s Watching.” Sonenclar, who has been busy recording music for her debut album, says the song addresses a topic that young people can relate to in the age of smart phones and social media.
“We are all on our phones way more than we even realize because it has become such a natural activity… myself included,” she tweeted. “We’re in this generation of documenting (what seems like) every aspect of our lives…But it can really take away from living in the moment!”
“I get recording a few of your favorite songs at a concert,” the high school student continued. “But next you notice, your hand is raised in the air recording the whole thing. That’s when you sort of lose that experience of actually being there and hearing it with your own ears… you know?”
“This song isn’t to tell anyone to stop or change their ways,” Sonenclar said. “But just to open our eyes & if we’re going to be watching at all times… you may as well put your best foot forward!”
