COLBIE CAILLAT & ELLIE JEAN COFFEY'S BILLABONG PRO-TAHITI DIARY PREMIERS ON VEVO AUSSIE SURFER TAKES SINGER/SONGWRITER CAILLAT SWIMMING WITH SHARKS!
From January 24, fans of #1 selling music sensation, Colbie Caillat, will be able to check out a unique new travelogue video diary which showcases the singer/songwriter's recent trip to Tahiti with Australian pro surfer Ellie-jean Coffey.
Coffey shared her "favourite place on Earth" with the two-time Grammy winner who was in Polynesia to perform at the opening ceremony of one of the world’s most spectacular and revered sporting events, the Billabong Pro, Tahiti.
Held each August, the Billabong Pro is set against Tahiti's breathtaking natural backdrop and thousands of fans flock to watch the world’s best surfers try and tame the legendary break; "Teahupo'o".
"It was a cool feeling to see how far music can travel. These people knew my music and were singing it back to me. It was really a nice feeling," said Caillat.
Caillat and Coffey enjoyed 'ringside' seats at the tournament, positioned in boats just meters from the tubing waves, and both ocean lovers jumped at the chance to confront another of their fears – swimming face-to-face with sharks in the waters off neighbouring island, Moorea.
The not-to-be-missed video diary can be seen on VEVO, the world's leading all-premium music video and entertainment platform, and billabong.com from January 24.
Chart-topping SoCal singer/songwriter Caillat's newest album ALL OF YOU has received rave reviews from Billboard, People Magazine, LA Times, and debuted at #1 on iTunes. The first single "I Do" was a #1 track on iTunes and the current single "Brighter Than the Sun," is #7 at Hot AC and is featured in the national ad campaigns for Pantene and for 'The Help. Caillat is currently on tour (check dates on www.colbiecaillat.com).
