What You Need

  • If you are unfamiliar with Virtual Choirs you might watch our first project for ideas…Click Here “Way Maker”
  • This is our second Virtual Choir Project and we have chosen the song “God So Loved” written by We the Kingdom.
  • We will preform the song in the orignal style of the song but in a slightly lower key. To the hear the song performed by the orginal artists you can find the video HERE.
  • To add a creative piece of our own we are adding 8 measures of a drum solo in the middle of the song right before the Bridge. This might be a fun place to get the kids involved and there are extra instuctions for this portion below.
  • Here is a printed form of the music with chords or just lyrics;
  • Here is our version of the song. Use these backing tracks for practice and your final recording. For Audio File to sing to Click Here, Video version with words Click Here. The final project will feature various contributors instead of a single artist so we are looking for strong melody parts as well as harmony.
  • You will need a video recording device like a Digital Video Camera, Computer with webcam or handheld recording device like a smart phone or tablet. You will probably need two devices; 1 for your singing track and 1 for your recording
  • Headphones are a must (to eliminate background noise)
  • Upload video file to Google drive Here or through Facebook Messenger. If you have any trouble you can Contact me by email or call Cary at 509-251-4101.

Recording Tips

  • Video recording can be done in 720 or 1080
  • Record in Landscape mode and frame your video to show your partial upper body and face
  • Frame video with a simple background
  • Record in a quiet place and steady your camera before recording
  • You can play an instrument as you sing but pay close attention to the instrument volume. It may effect how the video is used in the final product.
  • We need people who can sing harmony and other dynamics as well as melody. We will use most harmony parts on the chorus and bridge.
  • We are looking for soloist on the verses. Make your best recording and the final cuts will be determined by our producer.
  • You can sing right into a cellphone or tablet. If you have microphone equipment available, try to get the best audio quality possible.
