It took 288,000 Jelly Belly jelly beans to create this sweet video for "In Your Arms," and almost two years. Kinaâ��s certainly no stranger to YouTube, though. She actually built up a large part of her following, affectionately known as the Kinerds and Kination, through avenues like the video-sharing online destination since she opted to skip the traditional record label route.
The California native self-released several albums during her time as a student at USC before uploading a video and entering the Doritos Crash the Super Bowl contest, which earned her fans and a spot that aired during the Super Bowl. Kina independently put out her first album, Stairwells, back in 2010. Since then, the ambitious artist has toured, released a remixed version of her debut offering and continued to post new videos online.
