Nick Pitera is a YouTube Celebrity.

However, being a YouTube sensation only his part time gig.

You see, Nick works full time at Pixar, but his passion is singing.

I was attracted to Nick for two main reasons:

  1. His Unique Talent (watch the video below to see)
  2. His Passion for his Talent

He has a unique singing talent that has gained a multitude of media attention including being on the Ellen Degeneres Show… TWICE!

Nick also has over 80 million video views, but that isn’t what’s most unique about him.

He does something special with his voice that no one is really doing (and he often sees criticism for showcasing it).

His critics don’t stop him, however, as he has bigger goals in mind and his consistent action to produce more YouTube videos with the music he loves is taking him to higher places.

I sat down with Nick to ask him about his journey. 

In this interview Nick covers what it’s like to be “YouTube Famous”, what he does to get so many views on all of his videos, his business model on YouTube, and what anyone can be doing on YouTube to help build their own business.

Make sure to watch this in depth interview, and then watch some of his highly popular videos below.

Ready to watch his unique talent?  This video showcases it well :)

For all you Gleeks out there… you’ll enjoy this one!

I watched the whole first season of Glee with my kids, we loved it but I got bored when I started to watch the second season (or maybe I missed watching it with my kids) and never watched it again since. But that Nick Pitera... Totally awesome! And great interview of course!

I love how YouTube is making it so easy for talented people to share their gifts with the world and eventually become the celebrities they deserve to be.

I guess my girlfriend showed me his videos two years ago, but I don't remember. Nick is killer, amazing, and talented. I think he's definitely remarkable and he sounds like a nice guy, all this will probably take him very far.

Excellent interview, it's really cool to see how he did it.

Lewis, Enjoyed watching the interview. I live in the Bay Area and have a friend that works at Pixar. I'll have to ask him if knows Nick. My wife and I were blown away by the duet style video. Not only a talented singer but a keen video producer, too.

I missed what he does besides put keywords like Glee in to the tile of his videos though. What other techniques does he use that we can learn from? Thanks for sharing! - Mike

SWEET! =) Well, if Nick gets on the show, I'd have to make sure he passes my idea onto the producers.

I know right! Nick is defiinitely worthy to be on that show. I'm waiting for them to feature Janet Jackson's Rhythm Nation music and tie it into an episode on social issues or equality. What do you think?
