Top 12 Contestants' Group Single in Las Vegas
With the London Olympics in full swing, we decided to look back at China's Olympic anthem, 'Beijing Welcomes You.' Check out our twist on the familiar song!
During their time at the Las Vegas Academy, the top 12 contestants rearranged the familiar anthem into an encouraging, uplifting song, 'The World is calling for you.' Directed by some of the world's top musicians, they recorded a fantastic track, representing the theme with their young and passionate voices. The recording session brought their Las Vegas trip to a happy and successful close.
Produced by the renowned music figures, 'The World is calling for you' was recorded in the Studio at the Palms. Considered a recording paradise in the pop world, The Studio has housed the likes of Whitney Houston, Britney Spears, Celine Dion and Lady Gaga. The 12 lucky contestants were also tutored by teacher of the stars, Seth Riggs. An impressive track record, many of Riggs' students became big stars - the infamous Michael Jackson being one! With this in their minds, the contestants were ecstatic to hear Riggs say: "What I am going to teach you today is what I have taught each of my previous students." Also in this prestigious mix was producer Scott Spock of The Matrix, one of the best production teams in the US.
With such a distinguished production team, the contestants cherished the opportunity to sing their hearts out in 'The World is calling for you.' The performance, which following their 2-week intensive training, revealed their enormous improvement, with both the audience and coaches commending the group highly.
As with the lyrics, "Your dreams make you incredible."
