Kina Grannis gets interactive on YouTube. She wants to write a song with you, her fans. You submit your lyrics to the melody she created. Then help vote up the best lyrics over the next 2 weeks! Here’s more from Kina:
Over the next couple of months we are going to write a song together! We’ll be breaking up the song into 5 different parts: verse 1, verse 2, chorus, verse 3 and the bridge. I will write the melody and you will write the words.
Here’s how it works:
1. Watch the video above and listen to the melody for the first verse (at the end of the video).
2. Write the lyrics to this verse! Write about anything you want, but know that inappropriate ones will be flagged and removed.
3. Submit your lyrics right here in the Moderator Section. Don’t submit them as comments on the video or they won’t get voted on.
4. Vote! Whether or not you are submitting lyrics, I need your help to find the best verse out there. Give thumbs up to the lyrics that you like the best.
In two weeks, thanks to all of your help, we will have selected the best lyrics for verse 1, and I’ll start round two to find our next lyricist.
At the end of all of this I will put all our lyrics together, record the song, and give credit to everyone who played a part. I know there are so many awesome people out there with so many great things to say, I want to hear it!
