This write up is to tell you about the Kina Grannis contest I’ve entered on YouTube and also to help you navigate her channel to find my lyrics and vote. First off here is the first verse written by Katem3 who won the first Co-Write contest with my Pre-Chorus and Chorus following.
Verse 1 (written by Kate McGill)
As I lay here on the bed my heart it speaks
I let it beat its beat, you feel the love it leaks
And I can’t describe just how much of it is for you and what you do
But if I could love just one it would be you
Pre-Chorus & Chorus (Written by me, Rafe Preston)
Yes it’s true that I love you.
Yeah and you, you love me too.
So then turn around, yeah, lay on down.
‘Cause I need you here.
Whisper in my ear.
Wrap your arms around me, don’t let go.
Our dreams will grow,
And our hearts will know.
It is love.
And here is the video I made so you can see how it fits with the melody. Sorry, I’m a rubbish singer!
To vote for my lyrics you have to do 4 things:
1. Have a YouTube Account
2. That YouTube Account must be linked to a Gmail Account
3. You have to log into the Moderator on Kina’s Channel.
4. Find my lyrics and click thumbs up. (It won’t count if you just thumbs up the video I posted on my site)
Now I realize it’s a bit out of the way to have to go to Kina’s site to vote, but here is picture by picture instructions on how to go about finding my lyrics and voting for them.
First make sure you are logged into your YouTube account and then go to here Channel. I have links posted on my Video and in the description or you can just click HERE!!
Once you are at here page scroll down till you see two windows. On the left will be the submissions for the Chorus and on the right will be here description of the contest and a list of scrolling options. You may have to sign into her moderator (highlights in red) using your gmail account. This allows you to vote on other people’s videos.
Now just click “Video Suggestions” under “All Suggestions” (This will narrow the search as less people add a video to their lyric submissions). Then under that click Sort by Date and you should see me on that first page still unless someone has recently posted a video for their lyrics in which case you’ll need to click the next button to find me. Once you do just click the thumbs up to the right of my lyrics.
I hope you enjoyed my video and lyrics and I hope this little guide helped you figure out how to vote on them. Thanks everyone!
