    Shining bright is south Florida's very own treasure, Sonali Argade, who joined forces with friends at the Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music at New York University and collaborated with a few of her musically talented classmates to create an edgy cover video of Rihanna's smash single, "Diamonds." They submitted their version on the single, and Rihanna herself chose the winner. Sonali Argade beat out millions of members of the Rihanna's Navy to win this coveted prize, which is a visit from Rihanna. The time has yet to be scheduled.

    Seamlessly put together by NYU students, the video follows students as they record their solo parts and perform through the cultured and art-filled streets of New York. This "Diamonds" cover features each artist putting their own twists to the melody and pushing the envelope with their own originality and complementing it with a smooth rap verse.
