Crystal’s Team Pick:
Holly Miranda has started a Pledge campaign to help raise funds for the recording of her next record and if you’re a fan then this’s something you’ll want to get behind.
The motivations for the campaign are explained in this rather spectacular video:
A pledge of $10.00 will put an advanced digital copy of the new record in your hot little hands, plus give you access to exclusive songs, blogs, photos, videos etc. Pledges greater than $10.00 will score you some amazing personalised gifts, including:
– Handwritten lyrics
– Autographed CDs
– VIP passes
– Sketches and posters
– Holly’s ‘Rap Master’ Keyboard
– Commission Holly to do your portrait
– Holly will make you homemade chocolates
– Holly will play for you and your friends
– A recording of a cover of your choice
– A high five in the sun
Check out the campaign page to make your pledge and to see the full list of exclusives.
Once the target’s been reached, 10% of every dollar raised will go to I Live Here, a project which believes in the power of individual expression to transform the lives of people living in extreme poverty and isolation.
feelings about this video: omg she is so cute omg gomg dszfhksjtdhjawkhs;LasT
Yeah, THAT. I can’t even. No words but, like, if there were one of them would probably be ‘donate.’ When I have watched that video 50 more times, I am going to that, sure rih;vi nouiq.
i used to work in music / have a lot of friends at the labels and people she’s worked with and “i’d go gay for holly” was basically a thing that all ladies said once a week and i’m pretty sure they all meant it
why is the high five in the sun so expensive?!
there’s a premium for physical contact.
… that awkward moment when you realise Holly Miranda and Miranda July are two different… like, really different… people.
I had that moment a week ago. It was super awkward, even if just in my own head.
Pledge is a great way for bands to make money towards albums as it gives stuff back, too. A favourite band of mine (called The Blackout) had a pledge campaign for their newest album, with stuff like old guitars, drumkit, a chance to play Xbox with the band, as well as a lot of the other stuff. Not the chocolates though – they weren’t that cool.
She’s so beautiful! I love her smile and her voice is amazing. :) such a hottie and super talented
