I just uploaded a new video in series my siblings and I recorded while they were visiting and in it, you might notice a little diddy! That little diddy took about a week! Despite having a background in musical theater and chorus, I've never sung acapella before and it was SUCH a challenge! I had been toying with the idea of doing the, "Bleeding Rainbow" parody for about a month, but putting it all together in an arrangement was totally beyond me!
I wrote the lyrics in about 10 minutes and recorded it really soon after that. But something was missing - mostly the little bit in the beginning and the end. That little bit of the song was the HARDEST THING to get right! Despite getting all the other parts of the song finished and listening to the "Reading Rainbow", I didn't get that part of the song finished until the last day.
To be honest, I almost gave up on the entire thing the day before I got it done, BUUUUT I'm like a dog with a bone when I've got a project and I got back to it the next day and got it all finished!
Anyway, despite this one taking A LOT longer than intended, I'll probably finish up the next one in the series pretty soon! In the meantime, you can check out the first video and the song in the YouTube section of my site, or by searching PTElephant on YouTube!
