DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSION IS MONDAY, NOVEMBER 30, 2020 

  1. You need two devices:  a smartphone to make the video and an iPad or computer to play the song to sing with.  

  2. Watch and listen to Cantor Segal’s sample video.    

3.  Get familiar with the chorus of “Light One Candle” (lyrics below).  Set yourself up in a quiet room, with minimal echo.  A room full of carpet, or near a closet full of clothes works nicely.  Do your best.   

4.  Find a place to perch your phone ON ITS SIDE (MUST BE HORIZONTAL) where you can see yourself well, head and shoulders mostly, approx. 12-18” away from phone.  Make sure we can see you, so avoid standing in a shadow.  YOU NEED LOTS OF LIGHT ON YOUR FACE.  In terms of framing, you’re generally looking for a bit above the belly button/below the sternum for a cutoff, 

5.  While singing, hold a LIT Chanukah candle (or whatever candle you have) in front of your chest area.    

6.  Press record on your phone’s video camera, and then press play on device that is playing the soundtrack.  As you as you hear Cantor Segal start the chorus with “Don’t let the lights go out…” sing along with her, look at the camera, smile, enjoy! 

DO NOT WORRY ABOUT YOUR VOCAL QUALITY – WE WANT TO SEE YOUR BEAUTIFUL FACES AND IT WILL ALL BLEND IN!   

Lyrics: 

Don’t let the light go out, it’s lasted for so many years. 

Don’t let the light go out, let it shine through our love and our tears. 

Don’t let the light go out, it’s lasted for so many years. 

Don’t let the light go out, let it shine through our love and our tears. 

Don’t let the light go out, don’t let the light go out, don’t let the light go out! 

 

7.  If you know how to trim it to the right start and stop points, do so.  If not, we will. 

8.   Upload the video to this folder.
