Take a look at the making of “Courage,” the new video from Orianthi and Flyleaf’s Lacey Mosley. “The idea for the music video was to really bring the lyrics to life by interspersing my and Lacey’s performance with images that we think project courage,” said Orianthi.

The singer also let fans in on a secret – she’s not a very good driver. “We had lots of different scenes; the first one was set in an RV, driving around… thank god [Lacey] was driving, otherwise we’d probably end up in the closest tree!” Luckily for Orianthi she has her guitar to fall back on – “I love her playing guitar – I’ve never seen a girl play like her, she’s really strong and powerful,” Lacey shared.

“Courage” can be found on Orianthi’s album Believe (II). Visit Orianthi.com for additional information.

I love the setting and the colors that were used in this clip – very earthy and exactly the way I envisioned the video for this tune to be.”

As Orianthi prepares to hit the road with Adam Lambert next month, she has also been busy recording some new music – including her current single “Shut Up & Kiss Me” (buy it now on iTunes). This song and others will appear on a new edition of her debut album, Believe (II), which will be released June 8th on Geffen Records.

Believe (II) features four newly recorded tracks including current single “Shut Up & Kiss Me,” “Courage,” and “Missing You,” all produced by Howard Benson, plus “Addicted To Love” which was produced by RedOne. Also on the album will be selections from the original Believe release, including her debut hit single “According To You,” “Bad News,” “Feels Like Home,” “Think Like A Man,” What’s It Gonna Be,” “Suffocated,” “Highly Strung” and “Believe.”

It’s been just over a year since 25-year-old Australian guitar virtuoso Orianthi first grabbed our attention with her mesmerizing guitar solo during Carrie Underwood’s “Last Name” performance at the 2009 Grammys. The blogosphere starting buzzing with word of a new girl with guitar chops and soon Michael Jackson called and hired her on the spot to join his “This Is It” tour. Sadly the tour was not to be, but Orianthi took center stage as she released her debut album Believe and first single “According To You” in the fall of 2009. Radio and fans were quick to embrace “According To You,” propelling it to the top of the charts – it was the #2 most played song in the country with digital sales of over 1 million!

In addition to Carrie Underwood and Michael Jackson, Orianthi has also performed with Carlos Santana, Steve Vai, Prince and most recently Mary J. Blige on her rendition of Led Zepplin’s “Stairway To Heaven.” Orianthi and Steve Vai shot a video for her song “Highly Strung” – an instrumental guitar-dueling track on her album – which became an internet sensation. Orianthi also appears in the Michael Jackson tour rehearsal documentary “This Is It” which was released worldwide last fall. She has appeared on many television shows including Good Morning America, The View, Jimmy Kimmel Live, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, The Ellen DeGeneres show, American Idol and more.
