"Mer, how did you get from being a small town girl from Texas to being a the 'Golden Girl' of the music industry?" the interviewer asked.
I bit my lip and slightly giggled. "Well you see, it all started with a silly dare."

America 'Mer' Johnson, a small town girl, was an anti-social teenager. Because of this, her friends dared America to post a video of her singing on YouTube, one of the most popular video sites in the world. Little did she know, she was about to become a big popstar, Mer.

Follow America 'Mer' through her crazy road into becoming famous and a punk-rock band that follows her every step.

I took a breath before motioning to Kenise to hit the 'record' button on the camera. Sarah and I put  big smiles on our face and waved at the camera.
"Hey guys! It's Mer and Sarah here. So we've got a lot of requests to sing 'I See Fire' by Ed Sheeran. So here it goes.." I trailed off before placing my hands on the keyboard in front of me.

Oh, misty eye of the mountain below
Keep careful watch of my brothers' souls
And should the sky be filled with fire and smoke
Keep watching over Durin's sons

I closed my eyes and let my fingers glide across the keyboard for the piano solo. Sarah took that as a hint to contuine singing the song.

If this is to end in fire
Then we should all burn together
Watch the flames climb high into the night
Calling our father hold stand by and we will
Watch the flames burn over on the mountain side

Then I sang.

And if we should die tonight
We should all die together
Raise a glass of wine for the last time
Calling out father
Prepare as we will
Watch the flames burn auburn on the mountain side
Desolation comes upon the sky
Together we sang
Now I see fire, inside the mountain
I see fire, burning the trees
And I see fire, hollowing souls
And I see fire, blood in the breeze
And I hope that you'll remind me

As we sang out the last line, I stopped playing the piano. Sarah looked over at me and grinned before looking back at the camera.
"Hope you guys enjoyed that!"
I gave the camera a big thumps up and smiled.
"Make sure to give us a like and subscribe!"
Kensie then shut off the camera.
You're probably wondering what's happening. Let me take you back to the beginning.
I grew up in a small town outside of Houston, Texas. You could say that I was a small town country girl, because to be honest I was. I lived on a small farm my whole life, growing up in the country life style made me the way I was today. I was an anti-social girl, the only friends I had was Kensie and Sarah and plus my cute little pug named Chester.
So, how did an anti-social girl get in front of a camera sing her heart out on Youtube? Well, one night, Kensie had dared me to post a video of me singing on Youtube. She told me that I had an amazing voice and that I should let people hear it. Me being an awkwardly shy girl, I rejected that dare as soon as she suggested it. But everyone knows you can't reject a dare once it's given, you have to do it no matter what.
So Sarah decided to sing with me, to make it less hard for me.

And that is when I  uploaded my first Youtube video.
