Join us in perfecting the art of getting noticed on Youtube. Whether you are a young street poet, RAP (rhythm and poetry) lyricist, vocal diva, dancer, beat maker or videographer, music videos about advocacy, tolerance, struggle, hope, resistance and agency can live beyond their place of origin when many people begin to see themselves in concert with each other through these performances. Help us help you gain a following. Be among the first here to show the way to others.
We R 1 Voice is for all young people, not just for those with a singing voice. It takes a Youth Voice team to create a music video – skilled musicians and those skilled in sound production and engineering, videography, writing/scripting, and social media. However much you think you have the skill to participate, your passion is what gets noticed.
We R 1 Voice is for a cause that seeks a song. Young people are welcome to use the We R 1 Voice platform to source support, ideas and exposure for music videos they create for the causes or charities to which they are committed. Charities likewise can use the We R 1 Voice platform to invite songs. One example is the One by One campaign.
We R 1 Voice is for successful artists who welcome young people supporting their projects.
