Tijuana's latest indie "It" girl, Vanessa Zamora recently posted a contest on her Facebook page challenging her fans to produce a lyric video for her new single, “Te Quiero Olvidar.” She says, “I want to involve my fans in a creative way.”
The singer-songwriter first caught fellow Baja musician and Latin Grammy-winning Carla Morrison's attention when Zamora did a cover of one her songs on YouTube. Since then, she's been attracting listeners with her lead single, “Correr,” from her anticipated upcoming debut, Hasta la Fantasia. And her latest single, “Te Quiero Olvidar,” is no different -- you can easily see the praise she's been receiving from fans on her Facebook wall. The single already been streamed 7,000 times with 400 downloads. Last year in July, Zamora had 14,138 likes. Today, she's amassed twice that number with 30,397.
These social media rankings should give her fans with video editing skills extra incentive to step up to the “Te Quiero Olvidar” lyric video challenge.
“The winner will get my album for free,” Zamora explains. “And I upload his/her video to my official YouTube channel with their credits, and I will send a personal letter to the winner!” Most importantly, the winner gets exposure to her social media network.
The contest deadline is Monday, April 21. The lyric video must be produced by someone over the age of 13, and the content must be original work using the lyrics to “Te Quiero Olvidar.” For more contest rules go here.
