We are excited to announce that submissions are now open to join our next virtual choir! We have so enjoyed sharing your lovely voices with the world, so we had to bring it back for this year’s #MillionsMissing MAY. This year, the song we will be singing is True Colors as performed by Anna Kendrick and Justin Timberlake in DreamWorks’s Trolls. You have until Friday, April 29th to submit your video. To participate, follow the instructions below…
Instructions for Submission
- We recommend that you purchase the sheet music. $5.79 for print, $2.00 for digital. You can also purchase the print version, click print, and once your print window pops open, you can choose to “Save as PDF,” as an alternative way to get a digital copy. This is not a requirement, but the option is there for those of you that find sheet music helpful.
- Listen to our reference song performed by Anna Kendrick and Justin Timberlake.
- Wear headphones and record a video of yourself singing along to the song.
- Upload your recording to this Google Drive folder.
Q: Do I need to purchase the sheet music?
A: No, it is not required but recommended for those who find sheet music helpful.
Q: Do I need to film myself?
A: Yes, you’ll need to record video of yourself singing the song. If you’d like to get an idea of what the end result will look like, check out the video of our Virtual Choir from 2020.
Q: How should I record myself?
A: We recommend filming yourself on your phone. Be sure to film in landscape (phone horizontal), not portrait (phone vertical).
Q: Do I need to wear headphones in the video?
A: Wearing headphones or earbuds is a must. We must only hear your voice in the video. If any of the actual music is picked up in your recording, it will render your submission unusable.
Q: Do I need to sing only one part of the song? Should I be concerned about harmonies?
A: Please sing both parts of the song – you don’t need to worry about harmonies.
If you’d like to follow a visual walkthrough of how to upload your submission, we’ve made an instructional video to guide you through the process. See below:
That’s it—we’ll take care of the rest!
At #MEAction, we believe in the power of artistic expression. Through art, we can put our truth to power, inspire and empower ourselves and others, and make our voices heard around the world. We thank you for being on this journey with us, and we’re with you every step of the way.
We will follow up and remind you before the deadline. Of course, we do not want you to push past your energy envelope. If you cannot meet the deadline, let us know. We will do our best to accommodate your needs.
