Haley Reinhart is the cool, jazzy chanteuse from American Idol season 10 whose debut album, Listen Up!, may not have raced up the charts, but it impressed critics and fans alike!
After parting ways with Universal, the label that released her debut, Haley is an independent artist, with more creative freedom than she’s ever had since leaving Idol, as she explains in her pitch to raise $30,000 through the crowdfunding site, Indiegogo.
The project is a music video for a new funky new song called “Show Me Your Moves!” Haley explains the project via a letter to fans, and a super-fun video, and it sounds completely awesome and over the top!
Hi there! I’m singer/songwriter/rec. artist Haley Reinhart & I am trying to raise funds to release a stellar music video for a brand new song called, “Show Me Your Moves!” I’m at a stage in my career where I’m making lots of big transitions; which means changes and wonderful additions to my team. It also means I have artistic freedom like never before. I believe when an opportunity comes a knockin’ …and it feels right, you gotta open that door! My creative wheels are constantly turning and it’s about time I let you guys in on one of my projects. The coolest part about this campaign is the fact that it’s coming straight from the artists direction… No label interference, no nothin! It will be pure raw talent coming together from all angles.
I will join forces with director Scott Rea and creative producer and good friend, Danni G. to bring it all together!
With your kind donations – you will not only help me achieve the great goal of making my own music video, but furthermore; you will allow my inner visions to come to life as I’ve always dreamt they could!
What We Need & What You Get
We are looking to raise a total of $30,000 or more!
The director, producer, and myself are in this for the love of the game! We’re all very passionate and believe in this video, which means were not in it for the money. The people that will be getting paid for their services are the film crew that make shooting this video possible, as well as equipment fee’s for the set.
We want all of you to be involved in the process and receive perks for your kind hearted generosities! You will be able to receive autographed photos, to twitter shout outs, to personalized thank you videos. Heck, you can even have your name in the credits or be in the video itself! So take a gander… the world is your oyster! ;)
If for some reason we do not reach our goal and depending on the amount made, we will still move forward and shoot the video. It’s important that you know, this video is worth 150k and will look that good too! At the same time, we will be pulling many favors to make it happen for 30k.
I’ve always felt deeply connected with my fans ever since I was on American Idol. They’ve all been here since day one and are still going strong! With this campaign, I hope to get everybody excited and attract new followers in the making.
