I'm traveling to Nashville to shoot 3 professional cover music videos, including a full band in the studio for my YouTube channel! :)
WHAT IS THE PROJECT ABOUT?
Hey it's Arabella! I'm a 16 yr old country/pop singer/songwriter from Houston, Texas. You probably know me from Youtube, Twitter, Facebook, because I make cover videos. Bellaholics, I NEED YOUR HELP
By now, most of you have heard about my record deal with Tate Music Group and I'm soo excited about it! But it will take several months of hard work to finish writing the songs and making the album.
So in the meantime, to provide new material for my YouTube channel and grow my fan base, I plan on doing some serious traveling back and forth to Nashville. In addition to writing songs for my album, I'll record new covers in studio, with video shoots, and full production. So far we've recorded all of my videos using our home equipment, but if I want to take my YouTube channel to the next level I need more professional videos.
PROJECT BUDGET AND REWARDS
I REALLY need to raise money to be able to help fund all this. My budget is $4,000 for three videos, which includes the production cost, travel, and some really cool rewards like bracelets, t shirts, and tote bags that you guys can get for helping me!
If the project raises more than that, that would be totally awesome (if that happened, I would go crazy, I would do ANYTHING yall asked me to, and be able to make more videos with that money). If the project raises less, than the project won't be funded and I'll have to keep making my videos at home. ):
Once again, this will be able to fund travel costs from Texas to Nashville, studio time & professional musicians, and professional video shoots, for my YouTube videos. It will also give me more singles that I can put out on iTunes while I'm working on my Tate Music Group album. Plus the really cool prizes for you guys for contributing.
THANKS FOR HELPING!
I'm doing this for you guys, because I REALLY wanna give you the BEST music I possibly can. I'm SO SO SO excited for all the big things I'm planning on doing, literally CAN'T wait to share this stuff with yall when it's done. All I'm asking is donate whatever you can, and I appreciate anything you can give
Thanks, love you all and God bless!
Yes this is a real question! And yes, I have lots of awesome fans on YouTube and Twitter, but if I want to have a career in music I need to keep growing my fan base. I'm so thankful to have 19,000 subscribers on YouTube, but if I really want to have a music career I'll need a lot more fans.
And one of the ways to get there is by making the same kind of videos that the really big music channels are putting out on YouTube. But that costs money, and while I'm still growing my fan base the extra financial support from this Kickstarter project will help a LOT! :)
Yes I am signed with Tate Music Group and am so thankful! That deal is for one album of all original songs, which Tate is funding and will be released next spring. But in the meantime it is still up to me to promote my music and continue to build my fan base. Tate is a small label and doesn't cover any of those expenses.
