We hope you’re enjoying our Musicnotes.com YouPerform Contest, where we offer you the chance to record your performance and win a $100 gift certificate to http://www.musicnotes.com! Our contest entrants this month decided to perform one of our eligible songs from our Musicnotes Editions.
For the first time, one of our contestants decided to submit a creative video, where she did not record herself as a performer. We contacted our contestant, asking her why she chose to submit her entry this way. She said, “I do not show myself singing because I wanted to put the emphasis on the words of this beautiful song – which is really like a prayer for our country. I never knew more than the first stanza of this song and when I sat down to work on the piece I was amazed at the beauty and idealism of the lyrics.” You can read the full description if you click back to YouTube! from the video for “America the Beautiful.”
Our second contestant in this round of voting is a singer who performed ‘Tis the Last Rose of Summer a cappella.
We hope you take the time to watch these videos and vote for May’s Musicnotes.com YouPeform Contest winner! Are you inspired? Don’t forget to submit your entry for June’s contest, too!
