Weekly Music Video

This week the video is Çatı Katı by Turkish singer Gökhan Türkmen. I can't find information on him in English but according to the Turkish Wikipedia (Vikipedi) and his official Facebook page he has released 3 albums, Biraz Ayrılık (2012)Büyük İnsan (2013) and En Baştan (2014) and an EP, Ara (2012). (Click the link onGökhan's name for his Vikipedi entry).

Çatı Katı was uploaded on 7th February, so I'm guessing it was released round about then. En Baştan came out on 13th February.

Kaycee and Gabe are in the 11 year old age category  in this video and the dance style is hip hop. Kaycee became an internet sensation at 10 when the video of her doing a solo called Werk (the one I was recommended) was posted on Twitter by singer Katy Perry.

Kaycee is from Simi Valley in California and dances at Studio 13 Dance, which is owned by her mum Laura Rice. She does a variety of dance styles including hip hop, lyrical and jazz. Some of Kaycee's routines were choreographed by Tricia Mi…
