THE STORY:

Hi, my name is Kim. I am 21 years old and have been singing since around the same time i could talk. I am also a songwriter. I have been writing my own lyrics since around the age of 12. I am currently a youtuber. I make covers of songs. I have done covers of songs by Selena Gomez, Ariana Grande, Lorde, Kat Dahlia, Beyonce, Meghan Trainor, and many many more. Although, i absolutely love creating on youtube and making covers, i really truly want to have my own sound and be able to share the songs that i have written. This would be easy if i could play an instrument but unfortunately, i can not. That is why you're here. I am trying to raise funds for something called MiMu gloves and for a DSLR camera. First, i will explain what MiMu gloves are. MiMi gloves are a wearable technological system that is "a fusion of traditional hand garments, advanced sensor systems, and algorithms driving the detection of gestures and motions. These gestures may then be used to control music, visuals, or lights as the performer wishes." In other words, they are gloves that have sensors in them to help performers create music. (You may have seen Ariana Grande using them on tour) As an aspiring singer, i know that getting these gloves and being one of the very few who have them would really expand my career as a singer and improve my performance. I just want to create for you. So, please help me accomplish something that very few have been given the opportunity to accomplish. Also, as a small town youtube singer who works to pay off loans, it has been very difficult for me to save up for a really decent camera to record with. You see, i make my own music videos. First, i have to create the music. So i record the vocals of a song with my microphone and macbook. I use Garageband to make this happen. Then, i add in the instrumentals. This normally takes all night long. Next, I decide how i want to film the video. Is it an outside video? Is it a music video kind of video? Or should i just film in my room. If it is a music video kind of video then i gather a couple of people who believe in me. I get all dolled up by doing my own makeup and choosing my own wardrobe and then we leave. We find a location and sometimes end up spending all day at that location to shoot and sometimes even two days depending on outfit changes. I really do enjoy everything i do. I love being on youtube and being able to express my creativity but, i really want to be able to provide the absolute best quality videos for my viewers. Which is why, i am also fundraising for a Canon Rebel T5i DSLR camera. Please help me if you can. Remember your dreams or past dreams? What would you do/have done to make them come true? They don't just go away and i'm determined to make mine come true. I appreciate everything you can do even if it is just reading my story. Thank you and stay perfect.
