No way you can sing as well as David Cook, but hey, you can always give it a shot. We’re asking fans of the American Idol winner to create a video of themselves rocking a rendition of Cook’s new hit, “Light On.” It’s the first single from his upcoming CD, which is being released next Tuesday, November 18.
You can sing it with a ukulele, sing it a cappella, or sing it with a full-blown band – it’s up to you. Usually, it’s the silly or fun ones that get noticed – David’s pretty much got the serious stuff covered. It’s a great chance to show the world how down you are with with him. And guess what? He may very well comment on the submissions. (In fact, DC’s coming into our offices on Monday afternoon, so if you’re going to participate, you might want to do it over the weekend.)
Getting this done is easy. Upload your clip onto VH1.com (first you’ll have to join our community) and then take the resulting embed code and place it on Cook’s official site to share it with David and his fans. Visitors to both sites will be able to view, comment on, and rate your efforts.
David encourages his fans to put a spin on his song – that’s how he rolls. Check the video above for a short musical lesson from the master himself. He’s also going to be keeping an eye on all those creative clips that wind up on his site. Don’t be shocked if he weighs in on which ones tickle him most on both his personal blog and VH1.com. You will be able to upload your videos through December 2.
