How does it work
To make your submission, we ask that you create a video of you (alone) singing along to either ‘Melody’ or ‘Harmony’ to Verse 3 or ‘Melody’ or ‘Harmony’ to Verse 5 as described on the website www.globalvirtualchoir.com (the “Website”) to feature as a backing vocalist as part of a virtual choir on the recording of ‘Amazing Grace’ by the artist Judy Collins (the “Track”). Your video should then be submitted via the Website as directed.
Submissions must be solely your own original work (save for the lyrics and musical composition of the relevant extract of music to the extent required for the purposes of this Campaign (as defined below)).
We invite you to make as many submissions as you like and to make your submissions by 9:00am BST Friday 22nd May 2020.
If we choose to use your submission then it (or part of it) will be featured in the audio recording of the Track due for release on 29th May 2020 in all and any formats (at our sole discretion), and by way of an accompanying video (the “Video”) to be exploited in all and any formats that we may choose.
We will be deciding which submissions to use (if any) on 23rd May 2020 and those chosen will be used without the submitting person being notified.
We are anticipating we will receive multiple submissions and we cannot make any promise that any particular submission will be chosen.
The submission process shall be referred to as the “Campaign”.
If your Submission is chosen
If we do choose your submission (hereafter “Upload”) then in order for us to be able to use it you are deemed to agree to the following terms.
NB it’s really important that you have the right to provide your Upload to us and for us to use it as part of the Track and/or Video.

You also agree to irrevocably and unconditionally waive any and all moral and similar rights vesting in your Upload to the extent legally permissible. You may be requested to sign an agreement to give effect to this clause. We will let you know if we need you to do this.

Statutory rights remain unaffected. You also represent and warrant that: (a) your Upload does not contain any virus or other harmful software, any harmful, offensive or inappropriate content;
