The Warning is a band of young members with big dreams. One step at a time, those dreams are turning into reality.
The trio, which includes sisters Daniela, Paulina and Alejandra Villarreal of Monterrey, Mexico, recently appeared on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” where they rocked a performance of Ozzy Osbourne’s “Crazy Train.” They earned a spot on the show after getting attention for their cover videos on YouTube of both classic rock songs and newer pop hits. Earlier this month, The Huffington Post reported on their cover of Metallica's "Enter Sandman," which was uploaded last July. At the time, the video had more than 1 million views. Three weeks later, it has more than 7 million.
In the midst of their rising popularity, the girls announced that they signed with Victoria Records. Within days, 16-year-old Daniela, 13-year-old Paulina and 10-year-old Alejandra had a debut original EP on iTunes, Mic reports.
The girls announced on The Warning's website that they're heading to the Berklee College of Music in Boston for a summer program, thanks to a successful GoFundMe campaign. Ellen also wanted to help the sisters on their musical journey so she had her friends at Target give the musicians $10,000 each. The updated GoFundMe page says that the money will be used to “establish a college fund for each of the girls.”
Soon these girls might be college students by day, total rock stars by night -- when they're actually old enough to go to college, of course.
