“Fallin’ for You”: Betty wins tickets to see Colbie Caillat in concert, and Veronica wants in… but Betty’s already promised to take Archie! Of course, when Veronica wants something, she doesn’t give up that easily… and wait until you see what happens when she runs into Colbie! This tuneful tale includes a wonderful rendering of Colbie’s hit, “Fallin’ for You” – complete with Veronica’s romantic daydreams of Archie! Caillat is the singing sensation who made a name for herself as an unsigned artist using the internet to build her fan base. This led to a co-writing gig with other superstar talents as well as her own successful solo career.
