When Kid Ink set off on tour across North America, Skype enabled some Moment Makers with a passion for music to be right there amidst the action—and to share the event from their own unique perspectives. Here are some of the amazing concert moments they captured when Kid Ink visited their cities.

In addition to seeing Kid Ink on stage, three lucky fans also got the chance to be mentored by the rapper himself in a Skype group video call. When asked what it takes to make it in the music industry, Kid Ink spoke of hard work and perseverance.

Music producer and studio owner, Mateo Palmisano was impressed with how “cool and down to earth” Kid Ink was on the call. “The best advice he gave us was to work hard and not give up on our dreams. Positivity and perseverance are key to becoming successful,” said Palmisano.

For aspiring hip hop artist, Joe Mohney, being on a call with Kid Ink was an awesome experience and very eye opening conversation. “Hearing the tips he gave me when I asked about his experiences when he was at my point in his own career really opened my eyes to the fact that I can never stop working my hardest. Getting to communicate with an artist of that level was very inspiring and helpful to the way I view my current position and the future.”

Skype is giving music fans even more chances to get up close and personal with Ones To Watch with Skype artists. Send your burning questions to Ones_To_Watch in a Skype video message and you just might get the opportunity of a lifetime.
