Step 1: Watch the Introductory Video below

Thanks for participating in the Elevation Global Choir! We were inspired by Eric Whitacre’s Virtual Choir, featured in his TED Talk from March 2011. You have until the end of November to submit your video.

Step 2: Watch the How To Prepare video below

  1. Download all the materials we provide below: lyrics, the demo with all choir parts, and the demo of the specific part you have chosen to sing.
  2. Take time to learn your part before recording.
  3. Represent yourself well in your appearance.
  4. Find a quiet and tidy place to record the video.
  5. Use a video camera or webcam, and use a better microphone if you have access to one. If not, feel free to use the built in microphone in your computer.
  6. Use the demos we have provided as a guide for diction, pronunciation and style.
  7. To make your video, sing along with the demo of your part so the timing will be correct. We don’t want to hear the track as we are trying to capture your voice acapella.
