"Thank you for being a friend!"

Welcome to the HearingLife virtual choir – We want to recognize our staff for the outstanding care they provide, and thank our valued customers for taking the steps necessary to achieve better hearing. We are bringing people together to share the joy of music. So please join our virtual choir in singing: "Thank You For Being A Friend."

With this song, we highlight the importance of helping friends and family during these challenging times and beyond, and thank you all for being a part of our world-wide hearing care network.

And to help more people hear better, we will be donating an extra $5, up to $25,000, to our Campaign for Better Hearing Give Back program for every final video share on social media.

Submissions open on Saturday, October 17, 2020. We encourage you to submit your video as soon as you feel confident with the song, but you can keep an eye on our Facebook page for closing deadlines.

 


GET INVOLVED!

"Thank You For Being A Friend" is a fantastic song and perfect for celebrating the HearingLife community. We have a great arrangement that will be easy for you to learn and lots of fun for you to sing. Getting involved is really easy. You just follow 6 simple steps:

1. WATCH THE INTRODUCTION VIDEO

We have prepared a quick overview which takes you step by step through the project, indicating exactly what's involved and what's available to help you.

2. DECIDE HOW YOU'RE GOING TO LEARN THE SONG

We have lots of resources available to help you learn the song, including:

  • Sheet music
  • Lyric sheet
  • MP3 audio tracks for each voice part
  • Video tutorials for each voice part

 

3. DECIDE WHICH PART YOU'RE GOING TO SING

The song is arranged for a soloist and a three-part choir — soprano, alto and baritone. The soprano part is for the highest female voice, alto for mid-range female voice and baritone for low female voices and all male voices. If you're still not sure which part to sing, have a listen to all of the tracks and choose the one that makes you feel most like a rock star when you sing it.

4. RECORD YOURSELF SINGING IT

Once you've spent some time learning the song and you're feeling comfortable, it's time to record it. Although the technology may seem daunting at first, we've prepared a step-by-step guide, and are available to help throughout the process.

5. SUBMIT YOUR VIDEO

6. PAT YOURSELF ON THE BACK FOR A JOB WELL DONE

Once your video is in, it's time to let us do all the work in producing the final video. The final video will be published 10–14 days after submissions close. We'll be sure to send you a link when you're ready.
