Come on and Celebrate – Virtual Choir Recording

Come on and Celebrate – Virtual Choir Recording.

For Trinity Sunday on June 7, the “virtual choir” will sing Come on and Celebrate. If you can join in, please do. My aim is to sound like congregational singing, for which I’ll need as many different voices as possible.

To make the recording, all you’ll need is a phone / tablet / computer and some headphones. You’ll need to play the backing track through the headphones and record yourself singing along. You can use a single device, or you may find it easier to play the backing track on one device and record onto another.

Videos are encouraged. Instruments are encouraged. Or please submit audio-only if you prefer. It’s a celebration – lets make it look & sound like one:).

1a. For video – use the camera on your device.
1b. For audio only – either find a recording app (e.g. “Voice Recorder”) – or create a video and tell me to use only the audio.

2. Download the attached backing track and play it through your headphones.

3. Record yourself singing or playing along

4. Don’t worry about extra noise before and after, I’ll trim that off.

5. Once you’re done, please upload the recording here: https://www.dropbox.com/request/JRQHCLm28YXEjaFf5joR

Note; please do use headphones, so that the backing track isn’t heard in your recording. If there are several in your family, please send me a separate recording for each person – though if you’d prefer to sing together, that’s fine.

The deadline is Wed 3 June. The words are below, and it’s sung through twice:

Come on and celebrate!
His gift of love we will celebrate
the Son of God, who loved us
and gave us life.

We’ll shout Your praise, O King:
You give us joy nothing else can bring;
we’ll give to You our offering
in celebration praise.

Come on and celebrate,
celebrate,
celebrate and sing,
celebrate and sing to the King:
Come on and celebrate,
celebrate,
celebrate and sing,
celebrate and sing to the King!
