In an effort to brighten up our quarantined lives, Rock Voices is introducing a Monthly Karaoke Contest! This contest will be open to all members, past and present, and will be based on a theme that will change each month. Contestants will submit videos by the deadline, after which your fellow RV members will vote on the winners, using our official voting form.
Voting will be for the best videos in these categories:
- Best Use of Technology – use of multi-track recordings, or split screen or other technology-specific techniques
- Most Creative Visuals – use of props, images, makeup, costume, background, etc.
- Best Overall Vocal Performance – no explanation needed
You can sing a song from any genre; doesn’t have to be rock. You don’t even have to be on camera; remember, one of the prize categories is “most creative visuals”! And if you aren’t sure how to do this, you can always put the name of your song with “free karaoke” next to it in your favorite search engine.
Winners are determined by popular vote in each category; voters can vote in one, two, or all three categories. The winning video in each category is then posted on our website in the subsequent month. (How’s that for bragging rights??!!)
BONUS: Everyone who submits a video is automatically entered into that month’s drawing for a custom Rock Voices Karaoke Contest t-shirt from our very own Shiny Penny!
The theme for our inaugural January contest is: Winter
This is a fundraiser for Rock Voices. The cost to enter is a sliding scale, starting at $10 per entry. There is no upward limit to what you can donate to participate. (You may enter more than one song, but must pay a fee for each entry.) All eligible videos will be posted on the official Rock Voices YouTube page so that the community may watch before voting.
We hope you’ll join in the fun by participating and supporting Rock Voices at the same time! Thanks for your support, as always.
