Alicia Keys Wants You To Star In Your Own Music Video With Blackberry
Blackberry’s newest Creative Director, Alicia Keys wants her fans to star in her next concert video. In her first move as the company’s global creative director, Keys is asking fans to submit photos of themselves that will be included in music videos, which she’ll play as part of her upcoming tour.
Alicia Keys is inviting fans to submit photos of themselves via BlackBerry’s Keep Moving hub. She’ll take those photos to create music videos that she’ll play when she sings her song “Hallelujah” during concerts in her “Set the World on Fire” tour, which starts on March 7. Every city on the tour will have its own unique video. This isn’t the first time Keys has crowdsourced a video. Last year she created a video for her song “New Day” from fan-submitted Instagram photos.
The site also has a new video from Keys where she describes her feelings on the project. You can view it below.
Instagram is an iOS and Android app, and it’s not available on BlackBerry, so there’s no mention of it in the announcement. However, fans don’t need to have a BlackBerry device to participate in the contest — they can use any camera to shoot their pics. The only requirement is to submit the photos through the Keep Moving site. (Hmmm, the app isn’t available on Blackberry – yet it’s a Blackberry led promotion….I wonder if Alicia’s still using her iPhone?)
Do you plan on checking out the “Set the World on Fire” tour next month? What about the Blackberry Z10, has the excitement fizzled out?
