News Release: Peer Review submitter Sarah Bellah gets featured on YouTube.
Sarah Bellah was one of VoiceCouncil’s first Peer Review artists.
Now her song ‘Time Hasn’t Moved’ has been featured on YouTube—it now has almost 300,000 hits.
We’ve asked Sarah to tell us how this happened –and what advice she has for other vocalists.
Here’s a preview of her feature interview which is coming in a few weeks:
When you began your singing/songwriting, was YouTube a part of the plan?
I never thought YouTube would become a part of my everyday life, but now it is. After reading the countless emails from viewers expressing how my songs either helped them or inspired them, I was hooked.
How did you get started?
I was very hesitant about posting videos online, but I had written so many songs and was eager to share them. After some persuasion from close ones, I decided to give it a try. Only because I thought, ‘What are the odds that anyone will find me? I’ll just post a few songs and take them down after I get some honest feedback.’
Any advice for posting videos?
Make it personal, but keep it short. The YouTube audience wants to know you’re posting the video for them.
Any more advice?
You will have much more success if you make a video specifically for YouTube rather than posting a live performance of your act at a local bar. If you speak a bit in the beginning, so they know the song is for them, you’re more likely to get comments and subscribers.
