About Will Gittens

Singer and multi-instrumentalist Will Gittens began his Vine page in September 2014, sharing short performance videos of his smooth, soulful original music—pop and #justinbieber remixes—and covers of Vine hits, including a recent cover of Vine celeb Ruth B’s “Sentimental Love." In a little over a year, he now has more than 800K Vine followers and 2 million views on YouTube, thanks to surprising pop-culture covers like his 2015 rendition of “Thong Song." Born in Trinidad and Tobago, the Berklee College of Music graduate creates his increasingly viral sensations from his home base of Nashville, and actively collaborates with other musicians in the Vine community.
