Congrats to Connor Franta!
The 23-year-old YouTube star was just recruited by The Recording Academy as an Associate Member, and will be their official Twitter correspondent on the night of the 2016 Grammys, along with Megan Nicole, Sam Tsui, Max Schneider and Diamond White.
āOnce I heard they wanted me to be part of the academy, I was just blown away,ā Connor told Forbes. “Itās great for me being part of the YouTube community because itās a new realm we really havenāt gotten into ā itās a whole social age and this will let our voice be heard for the Grammys.”
He added, “Itās an honor. Itās definitely the way of the future, and Iām just one of the first of many. Itās a total honor to be the first, and Iām definitely going to use the platform well and do the Internet justice.”
