Apparently the von Trapps (yes, as in "doe, a deer") have been hanging around the ATL

And working with Bieber's vocal coach!

Well, we all know Justin Bieber got his start thanks to Atlanta's star-grooming machine. But the great grandkids of Captain Georg von Trapp? Turns out Sophi, 24, Melanie, 22, Amanda, 21, and August, 18—What? no Liesl or Friedrich?—have been in town working with vocal coach Jan Smith, whose client roster includes the Biebs, Usher, and Rob Thomas. Although we were hoping for goatherds and edelweiss, the video of the von Trapps and another family band, Alpharetta's Von Grey, doing the folky "Crying Bloody Water" in studio is kind of adorable.

The von Trapps are due back in town to work with Smith this spring, according to her enterprising publicist who jumped on the Seth MacFarlane bit at the Oscars as an excuse to share this video. Hey, we totally fell for the bait.
