1.Create your video
Sing on your own, sing with your family, sing with your pets, sing anyway you want, but be sure you sing along with Mary Chapin Carpenter so that everyone is in the same tempo and key.

Make sure you use headphones as you record and sing along to her version of Four Strong Winds. Also, that your recording has lots of light and that you are front and centre. Your beautiful voice is all we want, so please find a quiet and well-lit spot and do not use instruments. In other words, we want to see and hear you clearly.

Please capture your video in 1080p HD and make the orientation horizontal or ‘landscape’.

2. Upload to YouTube
The next step is to upload your video to your own YouTube account. If you don’t have an account you’ll have to create one, as it’s the best way for us to receive your video. Please give your video a title and a description.

Spaces are limited, so be sure to upload your video as soon as possible!
To make sure your video remains private, set your video as ‘unlisted’.
