My my my, hosting this countdown is amazing.
You, the audience, really seem to understand how much effort and love the artist put into this project and you show so much respect for it.
We're not even halfway through this year's countdown but I already can't wait for the next one!
What is #HITSBC16?
HITSBC16 stands for house in the sand's Birthday Countdown 2016.
Throughout the entire month of February, we will be celebrating this website's fourth birthday.
One artist/band a day is going to wish us a happy birthday and then perform a song exclusively for this sweet occasion.
Who is performing today?
She is a singer/songwriter from Minneapolis, USA.
Her sound and her vocal range offer you a big variety, yet you could say her sound is a gorgeous mix of Soul and Pop.
Jessica was born in Sweden where her father toured with his band.
She got to watch him on stage as a young girl and soon enough, Jessica fell in love with music herself.
The talented musician started writing her own music, gigging a lot and she's currently working towards her debut album which you can support, please click here!
What is special about this video?
It's incredibly passionate and very intimate. It highlights Jessica's beautiful voice and set a minimalistic yet powerful scene.
Enjoy Jessica Manning perform her stunning track "I Know You Know" for house in the sand!
