Presenting Princess Shaw: A Cinderella story for the digital age
Three years ago, Samantha Montgomery, known online as Princess Shaw, was just one among millions of YouTubers sharing her talent in relative obscurity.
That is until Israeli composer Ophir Kutiel, a.k.a. Kutiman, came across her original acapella and assembled a backing band of fellow YouTubers behind her vocals. The song went massively viral.
Montgomery's reaction? "Finally, somebody hears me."
Their unlikely collaboration is at the heart of a moving new documentary Presenting Princess Shaw. Today both Montgomery and Kutiel join Shad to share a Cinderella story for the digital age and discuss the magic of remix culture.
