The fact that these UTubers all live in the same state does not mean they share the same video style, the videos this week show us. From funny skits to touching tributes, these UTubers have a style all their own.

The Gardiner Sisters covered the classic “Walking on Sunshine” in their latest video.

Working with Lemons’ behind-the-scenes video shows the characters of their “I am Moana” video learning the dance, watching the fire dancing and laughing with workers at the Polynesian Cultural Center in Hawaii.

Maple Mountain High School Chamber Choir, out of Spanish Fork, Utah, performed “Even when He is Silent,” a choral work composed by Kim Andre Arnesen. The song features words that were scratched on a wall by a Holocaust victim: “I believe in the sun, even when it is not shining. I believe in love, even though I don't feel it. I believe in God, even when he is silent.”

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7_2PKNvEKQ0“Shape of You” by Ed Sheeran is currently one of the most popular songs to cover on YouTube. This week, Rob Landes joined in with his own looping violin cover.

Landes also put a new spin on Michael Jackson’s “Billie Jean” in another video, where he played the violin with a fidget spinner.

John Bytheway talked about pondering in an address at Time Out for Women. “Sometimes if there’s any silence, we just want to put the earbuds in, we want to turn something on, and pondering has kind of become a lost art,” he said in the video.

Mallory Everton starred in a new "Studio C" episode about a third-grade chess prodigy.

The Piano Guys revisited “It’s Gonna Be Okay” with Sir Cliff Richard, a British pop musician.

UTubers is a feature that highlights YouTube videos created by people with ties to Utah.
