Have you ever felt like an idiot or perhaps have a Close Personal Friend who has? Then this is the song for you – Idiot, by Julie Hinton. Check the music video out on YouTube or in the Short Films section of this site! The track is also available on cdbaby, iTunes, Amazon, or wherever else you buy your music.
Julie sings all over town on recordings, soundtracks, and local church services – her current vocal residencies are at St Augustine-by-the-Sea Episcopalian Church in Santa Monica and St. John Chrysostom Catholic Church in Inglewood. She sang with the Angeles Chorale for many years. With them, she has sung with Julie Andrews, Barbra Streisand, Barry Manilow and others. They also record music for various trailer libraries, so you’ve likely heard her voice (the highest one!) on trailers, commercials, television shows and more.
