Becoming a star through social media is possible. A Scottish postman, Nathan Evans, is proof of that. The young man made a splash on TikTok after taking up a 19th century sea song. His video has been viewed almost 10 million times and a major label offered him a contract for three albums. The singer has become one of the most popular artists in the world today. A huge music channel was created as a result of this sharing. For this young Scotsman, a new life has begun.
Since then, he has resigned from his job as a postman and testifies to this great upheaval: “To tell me that a singer has become my job, it’s a dream come true. Everyone recognizes me in the streets now.” Nathan Evans thus embodies the dazzling success of certain artists who have been discovered on the Web and who have delighted Internet users all over the world.
