On June 27th ChildLine is launching Final Verse in partnership with SBTV, a competition supported by Devlin, the UK’s latest crossover grime talent. Final Verse offers young performers the opportunity to record the final verse to Teardrops, an uncompleted track written and recorded by Devlin.
This is the first time 22 year old Devlin, who has just finished his sell-out UK tour, has officially supported a charity and the winner of this ChildLine competition will record their original lyrics in a studio, meet Devlin and feature in the music video to Teardrops. The final track and video will feature on SBTV (the UK’s most popular online youth broadcaster).
Devlin, who has featured on singles alongside Tinie Tempah, and Tinchy Stryder, has written and recorded the first two verses of the track and is now looking for aspiring MCs and lyricists to upload their Final Verse to www.FinalVerse.co.uk and complete Teardrops.
All approved entrants will be able to view their entry on a dedicated YouTube channel, and they will also receive a link to their very own personalised copy of the Teardrops music video featuring their uploaded performance, which they can share with friends and family online. YouTube views and ‘likes’ of entries will influence the final shortlist.
The winner will be picked from a shortlist of 20 entries by a panel made up from the world of UK music, including Devlin; Jamal Edwards aka SB, founder of SBTV; and Ben Scarr, A&R guy for Island Records who signed both Tinchy Stryder and Devlin.
The aim of Final Verse is similar to that of the Spit It Out competition, to let young people know that ChildLine cares about what matters to them and talking about your problems is the first step towards solving them.
To check out Devlin performing Teardrops, visit www.FinalVerse.co.uk and upload your entry to be in with a chance to feature on the track!
