So, there’s this contest that Lindsey Stirling is hosting (if you don’t know who Lindsey Stirling is…A) That is a sin B) Go look her up right now C) Three words: dancing hip-hop violinist). Basically you cover one of her original songs and post it on YouTube. Then she’ll pick a winner. Simple, right?

About two weeks ago, when the contest started, I didn’t bother looking into it. But then this Thursday, I suddenly got it into my head that I NEED TO SUBMIT A COVER TO THIS CONTEST.

Because of this semi-harebrained idea, I spent three days learning, recording, and filming a video to submit. It was intensely crazy. In the best way possible. I decided to make a cover of her song ‘Elements.’

And this is the end result:

As I mentioned in the video description, I absolutely could not have accomplished this feat without my spectacularific mom. She didn’t even blink when I informed her Thursday morning that I had decided to make a cover before Monday. She filmed for me and let me rehearse the piano at 11:30pm. In short, she’s kind of an epic ninja mom. I can’t thank her enough. :)

Let me know in the comments what you think of my video! I would love to hear your opinions–however, please keep all of your comments courteous and nice (I’m human just like everybody else :)).

So….See you when I see you.
