Yeah I had to write it out after I got the numbers up and corrected it.. it's been some time since I've had to do basic algebra and percentages, especially increases. My original percentage I got was 175% which didn't sound right Tongue

A 75% increase in views is fantastic. Congratulations! Your channel is providing great exposure for Haley. Plus, it makes it a lot easier for newly enrolled Haliens to go down the 'Haley Rabbit Hole' Tongue

Of note, Wild Horses is now 74,000 views from over taking At Last as the most viewed video on my channel (70,000 views away from 1 Million for the year, as reference, it gets around 100,000 views a month which is almost always about 50K views more than At Last, so it should past At Last in about 2 months or so) Tongue

Congratulations Tusk -- that's a lot of views. I remember those pre-PMJ years where getting views was tough for Haley. But you stuck with it and now you've got a lot of reach with your channel. Wink

RE: Radio: KHALEY-You're the DJ
Blush I remember what a big deal it was to get a video w/ 100,000 views, "Sail" from Stageit was a first of those videos that got some kind of daily view count. Tongue


Of course, The REAL story is, the generosity of #TeamHaleyFans allowing me to help promote Haley. From when THF was 'birthed' in CityWalk, Vegas & BGDays, all the PMJ videos, to the overseas Haliens, XAtlantic capturing Haley's historic debut w/ PMJ at the Lido in Germany, to Video from the epic tour of Australia featuring #LadiesOfPMJ w/ Morgan and Ariana thnx to Ozhaleyfan, Lyca & Ken, to the headlining tour videos in the US and Europe to even some of the smaller events, Damiani in New Jersey.......(phew)

Also some amazing photos from Greg, Ken, Barb and Pat and others to help put an extra touch on the videos Cool

Perhaps you need to put together a top ten collection that recognizes milestones -- like XAtlantic's historic video, and your London video of Creep.

Hmmm....
October 12, 2012 the first video on my channel, was a 'slideshow' from Carnegie Hall. I'd asked Steve (Himm2) if he could record the radio broadcast for me. Without any video to go along, I used photoshop and transitions to give the video a crude form of 'animation'. I also added the 'crackle' of a needle on an LP to simulate an 'old timey' ambiance Heart that seemed appropriate to Haley singing "God Bless the Child" w/ Irvin Mayfield Jr. Cool


This video, the first posted from this set, was from Vegas. Haley had just got 'released' from Interscope, Haliens were in a schism. I think the only time we saw Haley was during a thanksgiving parade. This was when I first experienced a sort of 'mission'. It was announced that Haley would perform 3 nights in Vegas at the Cosmopolitan, the Chandelier Lounge. I felt it was important that fans knew that Haley was 'OK', this was a blow, but I knew Haley as a fighter and that she was moving forward. These videos would show Haley continuing to do what she was born for Heart


**also significant in #TeamHaleyFans lore, this was the show I met Greg, Mona and Ken who waved me over after I talked to Haley (which ended up spawning relationships that are still going Big Grin )

The travel bug had bit me. Before Haley, I never took vacations, my brother got annoyed because he did, so he 'forced' me to go on vacation too. To placate him, I'd go to Vegas for 3 days to lose a bunch of money, or visit San Diego to see my Sister.

Traveling to LA to see her Listen Up! debut, getting to go back stage at Carnegie Hall (*luckily* having seats one row in front of the Reinharts Exclamation ) then 2 days in Vegas.... Travel bug was in full effect. The next year, Shows were being announced w/ enough time to plan, I started talking about seeing Haley at CityWalk, Vegas then to Haley's hometown for a second time, after Lollapalooza, to BGDays.

(The Listen Up! debut and Lollapalooza are on Miguel's channel, so not technically in this Tongue )

a Halien from Nebraska who I met earlier in Vegas, told me he wanted to help. He would be seeing the same shows w/ me. The more the merrier, I thought. Up til now, the resolution on my live videos were not the 'best'. That came w/ the Nebraskan Halien. He also didn't need to be credited, just wanted to help. Since I didn't want to take credit for something that wasn't mine, CityWalk Was where we came up w/ #TeamHaleyFans

CityWalk was also when Haley debuted "My Cake" and for the first time performed "What You Don't Know"




Also significant w/ CityWalk, this was the first show I met Rachel aka "Ms Cloves" Cool
Rachel would end up being the reason I finally was OK posting a picture of myself. I figured, as much as a social media maniac Rachel was, I'd probably show up in one of her posts anyway Blush

**Additionally significant in TeamHaleyFans lore, it was significant in that it was because I posted a pic w/ Haley in Vegas where I didn't crop myself out, ISCAT4HALEY figured out who I was and greeted me in Vegas out of the blue, which I admit was a bit startling Blush ...it turns out that meeting ended up in pretty significant volume of videos too Big Grin

BGDays was a big deal. My first time in Chicago/Wheeling was to see Lollapalooza, where I met Steve and Barb, only able to talk to Haley for a few minutes at the Merch table. BGDays was different, this time Haley was performing with her Parents. In BGDays, unlike Lollapalooza, thanks to Steve, I got to spend some time w/ Haley, her friends and family, the band, even Haley's teacher!

BGDays would also be the biggest gathering of Haliens yet that I had attended, it would also be where I met Miguel for the first time. The first video I posted from BGDays was Miguel's because of how great his audio was. He said that maybe it was so good because he attached the camera to a stick and held it above the crowd Big Grin

Haley debuted "Better" w/ her parents at BGDAys and this was Miguel's Video from his vantage point Cool


Looking back, Haley and Casey's Stageit show that October has to be a highlight of significance in Halien history. Might have been the largest gathering all watching their favorites at one time, all together experiencing Caley magic at once.

How could we know this show would be so.... epic? The variety, magic and spontaneity of that show was once in a lifetime. When we expected a cute chuckle, we got a masterpiece in music and entertainement eminating from two insanely talented geniuses, (geniusi?) Tongue

Haley & Casey stunned the fans who were watching with their incredible reworking of AWOLNATION's "Sail" (posted up stream), entranced us w/ some Esperanza Spalding, their sympatico was on full display for 40 minutes plus, It was a tour de force Caley moment Big Grin


Consistent in views on my channel was Caley's performance of "Hit the Road Jack"

RE: Radio: KHALEY-You're the DJ
So Haley announces she wants to raise money to make a video w/ some friends. I thought to myself, can I help in some way raise money? It seemed my channel might be able to help.

Months before, I was lucky to be invited to a private party. I got to record video from the party, but I didn't want to post them w/o the party host's permission, so I asked them, if I couldn't use the video, could I at least use the audio? They agreed. The first video I posted to help Haley raise money for SMYM was "Don't Know Why" Haley's Norah Jones cover.

The second video posted for the cause, turned out to have a life of it's own and caught fire. It's the top video on my channel that doesn't feature video of Haley singing, a slide show w/ my photoshop/transition technique. Dream a Little Dream of Me is the third most viewed video on my channel after At Last and Wild Horses Cool


Haley started doing some smaller venues, One of them featured friends, Dylan Chambers and Mark Ballas at the Hotel Cafe. This video would be one of Haley's first performances of SMYM after Premiering it exclusively on Yahoo. Mark and Dylan were incredibly supportive of Haley, this was also the first time I met Monika, Casey's videographer, her Photos are what Haley is using to promote #ForWhatItsWorth and her photo is the cover of Casey's new live album


Still collecting consistent views Haley's performance of "Sittin' on the Dock of the Bay"


And out of the blue, Haley unexpectedly pulls out Helter Skelter


Another special night of friends making beautiful music, this time it was at Room 5. Again Haley performed w/ Mark and Dylan, but this time, Casey joined in the fun.

In a TV interview a few days before the show, Haley had expressed her fondness for Meghan Traynor's "All About That Bass". That night at Room 5, Haley and Casey covered the song in their own instantly magical, thoroughly Caley way, and this was months before they would join PMJ and cover the song w/ them resulting w/ one of PMJ's most viewed videos on their channel.


and with Caley, there's always a surprise as one of my most viewed videos is their Basa Nova twist on the Jazz classic of "Cry Me a River" Big Grin


Haley also debuted "Love is Worth Fighting For" w/ co-writer, Clare Reynolds playing the piano.


Haley performing songs of Led Zeppelin, Queen and Nirvana w/ Irvin Mayfield? #NoBrainer. My first time in NOLA I went to Irvin's Jazz bar the night before the show to check it out (It was in this bar that Haley's impromptu performance of "God Bless the Child" impressed Irvin enough to invite Haley and Casey to perform at Carnegie Hall with him).

I got to hear Haley reprise GBTC again w/ Irvin, telling me the performance was "Full Circle" 3 years later Heart

After the show, Barb, her son (who generously gave up his seat so I could video the show), Miguel and I got to spend a few hours after the show w/ Irvin, his band and friends, Haley and Patti.

Irvin 'jokingly' made it clear that he didn't want to see anything on the internet Blush But Haley and Irvin performed this incredible rendition of At Last, it was so beautiful so intimate, as soon as they were done, I asked Irvin if there was anyway he'd let me post that performance. Irvin told me it was up to Haley, who said that it was OK. Smile

RE: Radio: KHALEY-You're the DJ
ISCAT and airhigh contacted me, they were in Vegas to see Haley perform w/ PMJ. Haley had just released her first PMJ cover, Habits, the beginning of an Epic partnership for both Haley and Scott Bradley (and Haliens Tongue ) ISCAT & airhigh sent me video of Haley performing it live, the first Haley/PMJ video posted on my channel Smile


That March, an overseas influence came to #TeamHaleyFans. XAtlantic introduced himself to HaleyFans and Haliens in a big way as he was there that March evening at the Lido in Berlin to capture Haley's First appearance w/ PMJ in Europe. Suddenly Haley's fans in Europe could see something they might've thought was impossible. And with that, XAtlantic captured her first performance of Habits w/ PMJ in Europe.


This was especially notable because, up to this point, Haley had only really 'toured' with the Season 10 Idols, it is on this tour, in a few weeks, Haley would perform Creep for the first time in Lyon, France.

Haley was coming to Europe in a BIG way....So impressed was Scott w/ Haley's performance of Creep, he recorded it as soon as he could days later in Zurich. Creep was not only the first time Scott Bradlee had covered a song he had already covered, so impressed was he of the chemistry within that collaboration of artists, he did it again w/ Haley, Casey, Morgan and Ariana on All About That Bass Cool

I, like many people who heard it, was STUNNED by the emotion Haley performed Creep in Lyon, to hear it live was the only thing on my trip to see PMJ for the first time. If you look at my other videos from London, you can see that I was able to hold my camera pretty steady. When Haley performed Creep, my first time hearing her sing it live? All muscle control was lost. The harder I tried to control myself, the harder it was to hold the camera steady. It was magical, this was 'new' for people. PMJ's video of Creep had not been released yet. In this video, there's a rare moment where the audience is completely silent while she's singing.... when she sang "So fncking special" I heard gasping all around me....none of the whooping and whistling you hear today when she sings it. It was a thrilling and emotional performance. Creep O2 quickly blazed past Sail in views.
This was when my views started climbing, the beginnings of that 9.3 million views started that March in 2015


This trip was also significant in that I got to meet and talk w/ Anders Grahn for the first time, also meeting Scott Bradlee and Morgan James for the first time after the show Smile

I had bought tickets to see PMJ in Seattle in hopes that Haley would be w/ them. Unfortunately, it was not meant to be, BUT Greg called me up, he had tickets to see Haley perform in Laguna Beach....again #NoBrainer, Haley takes precedence over PMJ.

Greg and Mona gathered 30 of their friends to buy tickets to see Haley, so we were 10% of the audience LOL. The Story goes that because of the infamous LA traffic, Haley arrived later than she wanted. She only had forty or so minutes to do a run through w/ Dave Damiani, who had got acquainted w/ Haley's Folks when they stayed in the Hotel Damiani was performing during the last days of Haley's run on Idol. It didn't go well, the song they were trying to rehearse had an arrangement unfamiliar to Haley. She spent some time to greet us, met every fan.

Turns out, even as flustered as she seemed before the show, Haley came out, guns a blazing and killed her set w/ Damiani. There was no sign of her frustration, a real pro. After her set, I got to sit down and talk w/ her. Gone was that tension and frustration. So I asked her what she thought, would it be OK if I posted the videos?

She said that she didn't think it went that well, she wasn't sure if it was any good. I told her, Trust me, you were great! She laughed and said OK, if you say so.

Thank goodness I 'fought' to be able to post this set, not only did Haley blaze a Sharon Jones Classic, but she covered Amy Winehouse...


and the most viewed video on my channel, Haley owns "At Last" Cool


Haley was making her debut at the historic Troubadour. It was a first time I tried applying for a camera pass to bring my DSLR in. Originally, they told me standard charge is $350 per camera....a few phone calls and emails later (thank goodness for smartphones so I could show proof of the emails), they let me bring one camera in. Scott and Casey were in attendance, and with Jacob, Scott gives this great intro into Haley singing "Creep" at the Troubadour

RE: Radio: KHALEY-You're the DJ
PMJ took the road to Australia and Haley joined them. Ken Smith & Australian Haliens Lycanery & OzHaleyFan sent thirsty US Haliens more videos of Haley w/ PMJ performing new covers 7 Nation Army, Oops I Did it Again




Not the best video, but I'm thankful a Halien, Tim, sent this in, to have a performance of Haley's first live performance of "Can't Help Falling in Love" at the Hotel Cafe. Jacob Lutrell, who would later be in Haley's US tour band, plays Piano


Ken Smith captures a one off performance of "Can't Help Falling in Love" w/ PMJ in Chicago...


ISCAT & airhigh score again w/ this gorgeous performance of "As Time Goes By" w/ Ariana's "Someday" and Haley w/ that ridiculous ending


Overseas contribution, Disneyhunt capturing this unique performance of "When I'm 64" a dedication to the passing of George Martin. There's nothing better than Haley performing Beatles songs Cool


First video from Haley's first Headlining tour is from LA


Always something extra when Haley returns to Chicago..Heart


Haley hints at her next PMJ cover in Chicago, days before PMJ releases Black Hole Sun


In Idyllwild Haley and Casey debut a duet that will be on #WhatsThatSound and another Caley Beatles' cover Heart




It's always a family affair when Haley returns for BGDays




Posted in March of this year, Haley returns to Paris to a HUGE reception, and to date already over 80K views, thanks to Harry Burns from Lyon (yes he got to witness Haley debuting Creep for the first time w/ PMJ Wink )
Overseas Haliens come through again Cool


....and finally, For What it's Worth is the first video I posted from Haley's show in Berlin on her first headlining tour of Europe. Meeting XAtlantic for the first time, the guy that introduced us to our first taste of Haley in Europe w/ PMJ Cool

There was a delay getting to post it. I was asked to let them see any video I wanted to post to OK them to posts. Unfortunately, my emails went to their spam folder. Once they found it, they let me post it minutes before Haley performed her show in Paris


Afterwards, they lifted the restriction, I could use my own discretion on what to post Smile

Sorry... once I started getting going, one thing lead to another Blush
