The RENT Sing-A-Long
To spread the excitement about RENT coming to Fox, we’re launching a nationwide virtual sing-a-long choir. How does that work? Hundreds of fans record videos of themselves singing along to Seasons of Love. We compile the best performances into one gigantic choral RENT-stravaganza of talent. Simple.
Want in on this? Here’s how to lend your voice:
1. Following along to the sing-a-long video on this page, make a video of yourself singing along. Here are some tips to get the best recording:
- Try to find a quiet, brightly-lit space. We want to SEE and HEAR you.
- Wear headphones, so that sound from the video doesn’t end up in your recording. Or, sing-a-long with the video on mute while following the tempo of the lyrics.
- If you’ve got an external mic, use it. Sound quality matters!
2. Once you’ve got your performance locked down on video, share it to YouTube, Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter with the hashtag #RentSingALong for your chance to be featured in our Rent sing-a-long video. Submissions will be accepted from Wednesday Nov. 28th until Friday Dec. 14th.
3. We’ll get in touch if your video has been chosen to be featured in the RENT sing-a-long video featuring the best fan renditions from across the country! Good luck!
