Beyonce Signs Teen YouTube Sensations
Beyonce has signed teen YouTube sensations Chloe Bailey, 17, and Halle Bailey, 15, to her company, Parkwood Entertainment. The duo first caused a huge stir online when a clip of them performing Bey’s “Pretty Hurts” was uploaded onto the video sharing website. The impressive clip caught the eye of Bey’s manager, and the music mega-star signed the sisters to five-year deals, which are awaiting approval from a Manhattan judge. According to Page Six:
“Their father, Douglas, gushes in court papers, ‘We cannot think of a better person to help guide the girls,’ adding his daughters ‘worship’ Bey. Their $1 million contract provides for up to six albums over five years. It awards Beyoncé 15 percent of the sisters’ gross earnings.”
Bey also signed New York teen Sophie Beem, 14, who got her start on The X Factor in 2012.
