Aggies, we need your voice.
Since 2018, The Association of Former Students has read every name on the Worldwide Roll to ensure that no names go unanswered on April 21. In 2020, The Association has enlisted Aggies from around the world to conduct the Worldwide Roll Call virtually, and we want your singing to be a part of this year's event.
The Association will conclude its Muster livestream of the Worldwide Roll Call with a video montage of Aggies singing “The Spirit of Aggieland.” It will be a historic Muster moment and we want you to join in as we show the unity of the Aggie Network in the midst of this difficult time.
Here’s what we need. Film yourself singing “The Spirit of Aggieland” on your computer or cell phone with these guidelines:
1. Use the lyrics and tempo found here: tx.ag/TheSpiritofAggieland (note: audio link can be found at the top of the page).
2. Film horizontally, and make sure that your attire and background are appropriate.
3. Sing by yourself or with a group of people you live with. Do not call or video-chat people to sing with them.
4. Sing a cappella.
5. Do not play the music in the background (we’ll add that in the final video). We recommend listening to the audio link found here with headphones in, while you sing aloud.
6. Do not do the yell at the end.
7. Save as an .MP4 or .MOV.
Once you’ve filmed yourselves, submit the video by Friday, April 10, following these instructions:
1. Visit pro.cinebody.com.
2. Sign up with email or Facebook (Facebook will take seconds).
3. Select “Join via Code” and enter “sing.”
4. Select the project titled “The Spirit of Aggieland Around the World.”
5. Select the blue upload button and drop in your clip.
We want to include as many Aggies as possible, but please understand that we might not be able to include all videos.
If you have any questions about filming or submitting your video, please contact Randy Reyes ’01 at RReyes01@AggieNetwork.com.
Thanks and gig ’em!
