The Ken Tamplin Challenge

Is anybody here planning on taking up the challenge? I plan on giving it a shot even though I know there are a lot of better singers than myself who will sign up.

I already have the course, but owning THE VAULT sure would be cool, but I will be doing it mainly for fun. I've only been singing a very short time so winning anything would really be setting my sights too high.

Anyway, should be fun, and hope others from here participate.

Good Luck!

Peace, Tony

    This is the first I've heard of it... you have a link to it or something?

    I got it in my email yesterday.


    Get A Ken Tamplin T-Shirt, Post Your Video
    Some of my students have a big name.

    But I've got a hunch there's more killer talent that needs discovery.

    That's why I'm creating a challenge to feature someone on my channel.

    First it was Charlie Bit My Finger, then it was the Ice Bucket Challenge.

    Now it's time for the Ken Tamplin Challenge, baby!

    The video of you singing can be:

    -any genre of music (just show off your pipes!)

    -serious or silly

    -before vs after doing the KTVA program (YouTubers welcome)

    -as short or as long as you'd like

    -acapella, with music, with friends, or however you'd like

    -just make sure you're rockin' your Ken Tamplin Challenge T-shirt!

    (we think posting to Facebook or YouTube makes the most sense)

    Ken Tamplin will be judging each submission to choose his favorite. Ken might choose the best singer, the most viewed, the most fun, the most creative, or any mixture thereof -- the point is to show off a bit and have some fun!

    Winners can receive the $2,000 Gene Simmons "Vault", the full KTVA course + 1 on 1 coaching, and even be featured on Ken's YouTube Channel.

    To see Ken's walk-through of the Simmons Vault, check out Ken's video here:

    -->

    Please send in the link to your video submission to thekentamplinchallenge@gmail.com

    Wow, i would love entering actually, but i am afraid people will easily out-sing me. Could be insecurity talking as well.

    I am interested to see the submissions!

    All the best,

    Ben

    I don;t think we get to see the submissions Ben. I think they just go through Ken's camp until they decide who they like.
    Give it a shot. It will be fun if anything.

    I didn't see how much the T-shirts were that you have to wear to submit an entry?
  • videoacevideoace Posts: 797Pro, 2.0 PRO
    The Ken Tamplin Challenge is simple:

    Post a video of you singing a song that you feel shows off your voice best, rockin' your Ken Tamplin Challenge T-shirt!

    Buy your shirt here for only $9.14 (that includes shipping).

    --> https://ken-tamplin-vocal-academy.myshopify.com/


    There are three different shirts to choose from

    Yes, Tony. You were part of a test emailing that went out. That's why when you first asked about who was going to join in, there were only crickets chirping.

    Hi all,

    As I don't see the info from the email or the event page, may I ask what country size these T shirts are based on? Is it American size? I asked because I read that once ordered, these will be made in China. So I thought I'd be on the safe side and ask this question here (the event page doesn't allow us to leave a question, nor has the FAQs answered this particular question.

    Thanks in advance for the help! This event sure sounds fun and I might just give it a shot. :)
  • highmtnhighmtn Posts: 12,506Administrator, Moderator, Enrolled, Pro
    They are most likely "American" sizes, but I guess we'll find out when they arrive.

    @highmtn, cheers for the prompt reply! I've shot Ken this question on Youtube; hopefully he'll answer this.

    Not to be an anal and cheap, but I'd rather order a T-shirt that'll fit me. Plus for internal shipping it's 5 bucks more...

    And the official answer is: "They are technically European, but all of the T Shirts I bought were in alignment with other T Shirts I bought."
  • videoacevideoace Posts: 797Pro, 2.0 PRO
    @highmtn
    I'm just going to order what size I always do because when I finish my video with it, I'm signing it, and tacking it on the wall in my jam space. If I ever for some reason get to meet Ken or any other KTVA members in the future, I'll have them sign it too.

    I know I should have read the rules, but can I make a video for each of the three different shirts?

    Peace

    I didn't see any rules saying you can't.

    Thanks for the info, Bob! Good to know! :)

    Now that sounds like a good idea, @videoace! I might just do that too! Hopefully there's other active KTVA folks in Tokyo!

    I'm officially throwing my hat into the ring...just placed an order! I'm stoked! And as a guy who only shops about once every 1-2 years, you know this is a big compliment.

    I think this is also a good motivation for us to work toward THE song we've been wanting to master. I'm planning to sing my ultimate hero's song, though it's in Chinese. World-wide race, no lol? I hope the fact that I'm gonna sing in Chinese won't hold me back in this contest...

    Edit: I thought I might need to clarify my statement a bit: Of course I wouldn't be singing some non-English song AND hoping the panel will fully appreciate the emotions and the gist of the elusive Chinese lyrics in it; rather, I'd pick a song that's melodic and can showcase my range and the techniques I've acquired from Ken's program. Does that qualify? The song I have in mind is one of the hardest songs for any singer in any genre; there are some powerful mixes in the 6th octave in there that i'm hoping to accomplish. (E6 is still a hit or miss for me, but it's a working progress...)

    Hi @highmtn and other admins, I placed my order (Order #1048) 12 days ago, but every time I track my order status, it keeps showing "pending." And I actually wrote an inquiry to thekentamplinchallenge@gmail.com 2 days ago, but I haven't heard anything back yet...

    I'm a bit concerned bc I live in Tokyo and the deadline is approaching. Could you help me out, Bob? I'll forward that email to you shortly. Thanks in advance for considering it!

    Best,

    @highmtn I'm glad to report that i just received a system message about an hour ago. Looks like it was just a delay in the system; my T-shirt arrived at Jiangxi province in China on 3/27 and was subsequently shipped by air from Shanghai to Japan on 4/2. It should land anytime soon then. Thanks, guys!

    Greetings,
    I watched on YouTube yesterday the Ken trampling challenge. all participants require to order shirt to wear it, and then, sing a song to post it to youtube.

    I have been thinking to participate, even though, I know my singing level is absolultely lessen comparing to all of the KTVA members, and even much lessen from whom member particpating.

    So for winning, I don't even see in my wildest dream of going to the next round, because I know the singing level of mine is not ready.

    Particpating to this challenge, I am embarrassing myself, making fool of myself,and providing the reason for others to make of fun of me.

    Despite the all of the embarrassing, defeating, and others why I am still interested to participate to this challeenge.

    What is the advantage? Is this help me improve my shyness when singing to front of people? Is this help me build confidence when singing? Is this help me improve the singing level?


    Thank you all for finding time to read my post.

    Greetings,
    Upon reading my last post, some may have had taken into negative for the grammar arrangement; My sincerely apology.
    I am just reaching out for help to permanently believe in myself. My confidence in singing has been similar to elastic rubberband. Even thought I'm slow learner in singing,
    I'm so motivated and dedicated to learn to sing, but very low or non self confidence is the biggest enemy of my own to apply what I learned.

    Please advise

    @FFBS
    You're not alone my friend. I have a very hard time learning to sing myself. I have to work really hard, and long to get some of the things most say were/are easy. I put in a lot of hours and still don't sound good at all, but I'm enjoying the challenge, and learning a little something along the way.
    For me, confidence isn't a problem. I know I can do it. It's just going to take me longer than most.

    Just keep on doing those scales, and pay attention to what your body is doing. You will be just fine.

    Peace, Tony

    @FFBS @videoace

    It's your dedication that will get you there. No great things/skills come easy.
    More so, it's very inspiring to read these type of things. I had so much struggles myself, and still have. But progress is there, which shows that there is light at the end of the tunnel.

    That might have sounded a little dramatic, but it's true.

    All the best,

    Ben

    Are you going to do the challenge?
  • bentkbentk Posts: 710Pro, 2.0 PRO
    I haven't ordered a t-shirt and i haven't given it much thought this time. I'll wait for a second challenge! :)

    All the best,

    Ben

    I'm surprised. I figured most of the regulars here would toss in a video.
    It's something fun to do, and support the people that are always here supporting us so it's a win win.

    Catch you on the next one my friend.

    Peace, Tony
