Mel on the video:

“We want to give you the possibility to present yourself in this video. It’s not about me. It is about us. It’s about you. This video gives you the possibility to promote yourself and your message. You’ll need to sing along or lip synch, but also feel free to write your stage-name, website, slogans or whatever you want on a poster, your clothes or even on your body. Think about what you want to do. What do you wanna ‘say’? How do you wanna look? Who are you? The world needs your expression! The world needs your energy and your message! I’ll be so grateful if you join in and I can’t wait to see the footage. If you have any questions, email me at x”
