Savan songster

In honor of my daughter getting a follow on Twitter from the one and only official and VERIFIED Savan Kotecha today, I thought I'd devote today's post to him.

That "follows you" is, of course, for her, not me.

Considering he's followed by 463,101 people, and he only follows 25,196 himself, that's a pretty big WIN for her.

We all got to meet Savan on X Factor when he treated us with this little number about our favourite boys.

But if you want some real pearls of wisdom, you can check out his YouTube channel here 

Savan wrote not only One Direction's first smash hit, "What Makes You Beautiful," but he's also the songwriter for a whole slew of our other favourite 1D tunes, like "Live While We're Young" and one of my personal faves, "I Wish."

In fact, Savan is credited with writing on all of these One Direction songs:
"Live While We're Young"
"What Makes You Beautiful"
"Na Na Na"
"I Wish"
"Up All Night"
"Save You Tonight"
"Kiss You"
"One Thing"
"I Want"
"Heart Attack"
"Last First Kiss"
"Back For You"
"Nobody Compares"
"Still The One"
"Change My Mind"

(Oh, he also wrote one of my fave Maroon 5 songs, "One More Night," which is completely addictive.)

He's won six BMI awards and two Billboard music awards.

Savan has helped the boys from the very beginning, working as their vocal coach on the X Factor.

Check him out working with our sweet little Irish snowflake, Niall Horan. :)

And now, I'd like to wish a happy anniversary to
Liam Payne and Dani Peazer - our Payzer - who marked two years together April 14, and Zayn Malik and Perrie Edwards - Zerrie - who today, April 17, have been together for one year.

And tomorrow, April 18, is an extra special day for the boys because it marks their millediem! Their 1,000th dieversary! OK. I just made those words up. But what it means is this - Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, Zayn Malik and Niall Horan have been together and making us love them more and more every day for 1,000 days!
