Calling all singers, dancers and actors!
Musicline launches a free-to-join, collaborative, online project for children all over the world.
Steve Titford, writer for Musicline School Musicals, has composed and produced a brand new song called “Back Together (IRL)” (IRL meaning In Real Life, of course!). It is an isolation escape anthem about lasting friendship, bringing folks together regardless of distance. Powerful, positive, fun.
Steve and Musicline want to make a global recording with as many singers as possible, along with an awesome music video. Solo spots will be available in the video for the best performances.
All children need is a smartphone, tablet or computer along with parent/carer permission. All children need to do is video themselves performing the song to the best of their ability and send it to Musicline.
Musicline have created an online portal to make signing up, granting permission and uploading submissions as quick and easy as possible. This can be found at https://www.musiclinedirect.com/online. Here children will also find lots of resources to assist in learning, practising, and recording their performance. Musicline have provided:
- MP3 downloads of the song with Steve’s demo vocal
- MP3 of just backing track music
- “Karaoke Style” learning aid called “Sing it!”
- PDF downloads of the lyrics and music notation
- Tuition videos – Steve has also uploaded several tuition videos with lots of great hints and tips on how to get the best performance possible.
Steve and Musicline have tried to provide everything, so all children need to concentrate on is their performance and having fun!
Musicline Managing Director Mike Smith said: “As schools all over the world have been closed due to Covid-19, we thought the best use of our time would be to create a project that children can be creative with without leaving their homes. Performing Arts is incredibly important for children’s confidence and mental health. It’s also a great way to ‘connect’ with old friends and new. It’s a great way to blow of steam and have some fun during this difficult time. ”
