I got sucked into this show on MTV a week or two ago called Camp’d Out: I’m Going to Rock Camp. It’s one of those MTV true life documentaries and this particular one was about a camp that teens go to to learn to be rock stars. The documentary centered around a select handful of “campers” and it was Zella Day who stood out heads and shoulders above the rest of her fellow wanna be rockers. The 13-year-old acts like, surprise, a 13-year-old – really energetic and outgoing and she writes her own songs.
“Simple Song” (Zella Day original)
Zella, according to her MySpace page, has a record coming out sometime this month. I don’t know if that disqualifies her from a future American Idol appearance, but if she hasn’t already become a big rock star by the time she turns 16 (the minimum age of contestants), I have little doubt that the judges would become absolutely smitten with her and give her a golden ticket probably before she even sang her first note.
