If you have been watching Anberlin’s Facebook or Twitter accounts, you might have seen an earlier post that the band has been considering letting its fans sing on their album, set to come out later this year. Today the band announced a contest in which four fans’ vocal talents will be featured on the album. Check out the Facebook announcement below with details on how to enter.
Hey guys – so we have a crazy idea: would any of you like to sing on our new record? We are looking for 4 guest vocalists on a couple parts on the record, and we thought it would be fun to run a contest and pick from that. So what we’d like to do is this…
Upload a video of yourself to Youtube singing to one of your favorite Anberlin songs (get creative with it if you want – karaoke, do a cover, sing to just a piano, whatever you want). Tweet a link to your video to @anberlin with the hashtag #AnberlinGuestVox. We’ll pick it from there and will work out the details with the people we pick.
What do you think? Do you plan to enter? Is this a good idea from the band?
