About Absofcourse

Alabaman Abigail Ross stays true to her motto, “I just wanna make music,” taking to YouNow to live stream herself performing whatever she’s feeling in that moment, whether it’s an original song or a cover of one of her favorite tunes. With a rich, soulful voice, she nails impressive versions of pop songs like Ariana Grande’s “Almost Is Never Enough” and “Fine” by Kacey Musgraves. Her high notes show her power and range, but she also has fun tackling Nicki Minaj’s rap verse from Ariana’s “Side To Side.” The aspiring professional singer has gotten over 1.8M views of her daily Absofcourse streams, helping her nab a YouNow Editor’s Choice for musicians.
