Welcome to the blessing project

Many thanks for choosing to be a part of this project. The song we are currently working on is 

“The Blessing”

(feat. Kari Jobe & Cody Carnes).

To listen to several versions of this song, please click here.

We need you to do the following

1.  Vocal Submission

The following instructions below are to help you capture the best of your own audio and video takes. You will find the audio links at the end of this guideline. Kindly download your part, listen to it severally and then record it. You are to download PART track (to learn your part), and BACKING track (to listen to as you record).

 

2. Non Vocal Submissions

Non music arts are welcome. You can send a 5 second goodwill message, a thank you message to the NHS frontliners or a picture of your art to bless lives.

Please take clear pictures of your work and send to us as well.

 

3. Tips for an Excellent Capture

HOW TO CAPTURE YOUR AUDIO and VIDEO:

Advisedly you should use two devices; 1) to plug your earphones to and listen to the backing track as you sing, and 2) to record your audio and video while listening to the backing track.

BUT if your device is able to playback AND record at the same time, and you have long earphones to enable you move away to capture the best shot, then please go ahead and use it.

For the best Audio Capture:
If you don’t have a home studio or access to one, you can record in a room that has no echo.
Any room that has thick drapes and carpets help to reduce echo and distracting sounds.
Please avoid kitchens, hallways, bathrooms etc  as they produce very echo-ey sounds.

Please do not play the backing tracks in the background while recording your voice.

For recording instruments, please ensure you plug in and record through a sound-card or mixer. We will struggle to use Instrument audio recorded over your phones.

 

For the best Video Capture:
Turn your phone to the side and shoot landscape.
Use a tripod or place the phone on a stable place. Avoid using your hand to hold your phone.
When capturing, turn to the light source so it bounces on your face. Don’t have your back against the light. Don’t use your camera flash. 
Natural light works best, use white sheets/drapes/shower curtains etc., to help you reduce intensity of light. Or capture just when the sun has gone down.

If shooting outdoors, an overcast day/time will make you look good, so you can choose to film very early or evening when the sun is down

For your background behind you, Avoid plain or white backgrounds. Choose a beautiful background. Avoid wearing the same color of clothes with your background.  Avoid any big distinct objects (clocks, pictures, portraits) sticking out from behind your head in the video capture. keep a bit of space above your head when framing for the video and avoid any objects (clocks, pictures, portraits etc.) sticking out behind from your head in the background of your video.

Don’t use digital zoom. 

Avoid auto settings and use AE (Auto Exposure) lock because you don’t want the smartphone to keep changing the intensity of light while you’re filming.

 

4. Send

Once you have successfully captured your audio and video and are satisfied with the quality, send your files to theblessingproject@havenx.org or CLICK HERE to Upload. You will receive a confirmation email saying we have received it.

lyrics

“The Blessing”

(feat. Kari Jobe & Cody Carnes)

The Lord bless you
And keep you
Make His face shine upon you
And be gracious to you
The Lord turn His
Face toward you
And give you peace

 

Amen, amen, amen
Amen, amen, amen

 

May His favor be upon you
And a thousand generations
And your family and your children
And their children, and their children

 

May His presence go before you
And behind you, and beside you
All around you, and within you
He is with you, He is with you

 

In the morning, in the evening
In your coming, and your going
In your weeping, and rejoicing
He is for you, He is for you

 

He is for you, He is for you
He is for you, He is for you
He is for you, He is for you

 

Amen, amen, amen
Amen, amen, amen

 

Writer(s): Chris Brown, Steven Furtick, Kari Brooke Jobe, Cody Carnes
