Busking in New York


Grace, Melissa and Ben went busking in New York to promote "Ur so Beautiful". They performed in a park, on a subway station, on a subway train, and in the streets.

Not many people stoped to listen, but as Grace later commented, "This is New York", had it been in L.A. she believes they would have had a bigger audience. The lack of an audience did not however appear to affect the trio who seemed (as always) to have a good time.
