Watch: YoungArts TakeOne | Jasmine Bailey, India Carney, David Stewart

By YoungArts | January 2, 2024

With only five minutes to rehearse, three YoungArts winners come together to cover “Killing Me Softly With His Song.”

Three musicians, five minutes to rehearse, one take. This is TakeOne. A group of past YoungArts winners were invited to L.A. to film a collaborative performance video. All they received was key information: a place, date and time to meet. Communicating with one another beforehand was off limits. Shoot day arrived, and the artists got five minutes to discuss together, then cameras were rolling for the first—and only—take, TakeOne.
