AMERICAN IDOL’S CHRIS SLIGH ASKS FANS TO CREATE THEIR OWN VIDEO FOR HIS HIT SINGLE
13 October 2008

As he wraps his nationwide, headline “Back to School” tour this week, American Idol finalist Chris Sligh has asked his fans to have some fun and help him create his next video, lip-syncing to the original vocals for Sligh’s debut, top 10 AC hit single, “Empty Me.”

"’Empty Me’ is a special song, and I always knew that the video for the song would need to be something special, too,” explains Sligh. “As we've seen people react to the song, I knew I wanted the video to be something involving the fans. I say this every night in concert, but this song is a simple prayer that we should be praying whether you're a dog walker, a cheerleader, the President of the United States or some chubby guy that was on American Idol - to be emptied of ourselves so we can be filled with Christ. So, I want dog walker, cheerleaders and maybe even the President (or maybe a candidate for President) to video themselves doing cool stuff lip-syncing to my song!"

Video submissions can be made as of today through October 24th by emailing the file to EmptyMeVideo@gmail.com or by posting it to www.yousendit.com and sending that link to EmptyMeVideo@gmail.com.

The length of each video submitted will be limited to 35 seconds, and depending on the first letter of a fan’s last name, they’ll be asked to submit a video for a certain portion of the song. Fans are encouraged to record in non-traditional situations (in an elevator, in line at an amusement park, in the back of class during a lecture, at the Washington Monument, at Mt. Rushmore, at Grand Canyon, during a football game, while water-skiing, etc). In addition, any quality video file is welcome, whether that be via use of a cell phone or a broadcast quality camera. Full guidelines for submission are available now at www.myspace.com/chrissligh, www.brashmusic.com, and/or Sligh’s blog, www.frommymindtoyoureyes.blogspot.com.

Sligh’s follow-up single to “Empty Me,” “Arise,” has just been serviced to Christian AC radio and hits the New and Active chart at both R&R AC Monitor and Indicator charts this week.

As Sligh’s debut CD,”Running Back to You” became one of the best-selling Christian album on iTunes ®, the project that has wowed critics from USA Today to CCMmagazine.com also had the highest debut on Christian SoundScan in it’s first week as well. Named as one of Entertainment Weekly’s “Best Idol Auditions Ever,” , Sligh auditioned for American Idol more or less on a whim. To his surprise, his performance swept him onto a fast track to the final rounds. His willingness to take chances, his ironic wit, and his startlingly powerful vocals embedded him into the popular imagination, while his distinctive blend of talent, humor, confidence, and unpredictability led to an exchange with Simon Cowell that delighted the other judges, host Ryan Seacrest, and much of America. .An official American Idol commentator for Entertainment Weekly online during this past season, Sligh operated on a three week rotating schedule with two other commentators (Jon Peter Lewis and Nadia Turner), and wrote funny and informative commentaries through the lens of his experiences on American Idol.
