This Popdust Exclusive features the new music video by Jessica Domingo telling the story of the difficulties of long distance relationships.

On the somewhat rare occasion that a viral Youtube cover star starts making their own music, it is even more rare that they end up being as truly inspired and undauntedly personal as one Jessica Domingo. With the release of her second original EP Moonplay, Jessica Domingo is shaping up to be a musician taken seriously. Her newest video for her ballad "Echoes" from her most recent EP Moonplay tells her firsthand story of the difficulties of long distance relationships through events that really happened to her over the timeline of her own relationship. In her words, "you can't make someone stay with you".

Based in Seattle, Jessica is best known for her YouTube videos, including a cover of Frank Ocean's "Thinkin Bout You" which garnered upwards of two million views and her more recent Kendrick Lamar medley which garnered hundreds of thousands of views. Her video covers have gained her a wide fanbase and 55k subscribers on Youtube!

Jessica has always been one to take the majority of creative control over her work, and that is no different with the release of her new EP Moonplay last September. In fact, singlehandedly wrote the song AND directed the video for "Echoes"! Before taking a turn in the direction of Alternative R&B, Jessica received praise for her more pop-oriented album Just Vibe. Fanlala even called Jessica's style, "a toe-tapping beat that still puts us at ease". On top of that, Jessica was a world-wide semi-finalist in the Unsigned Only Music Competition 2014, a top 3 finalist of Asian American Singing Idol and a multi-time performer at the Bite of Seattle Festival. Now Jessica moves on to take the loyal following she has built on the journey into becoming the artist that she's always wanted to be.

With Jessica's new foray into this transformation, she is poised to be one of the next standout stars. See her new video for Echoes here, and listen to the full EP for Moonplay here!
