MUSIC FROM THE STREETS DOCUMENTARY/REALITY TV SHOW
Music From The Streets has partnered with the producers of “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” to televise the journey of Music From The Streets artists. Music fans from across the country will upload videos of their favorite street musicians to this site. Music industry leaders and the Music From The Streets executive staff will select the top 30 artists, and the top 10 finalists will then be chosen by an esteemed panel of music industry judges, as well as the public. These final 10 winners will have the chance to work with top record producers to record one of their songs, which will be included on a compilation release titled Music From The Streets For The Streets. Plans are in the works for a series featuring these musicians, their stories, and their music, and a portion of all profits will be donated to our nonprofit partners. This series will not only spotlight exceptional street musicians from across the country but will also mobilize national awareness of homelessness and garner support and funds for our Nonprofit partners: National Alliance to End Homelessness, National Coalition for the Homeless, National Coalition for Homeless Veterans, and StandUp for Kids.
Episodes 1 & 2
The audience will follow the extraordinary journey of the top 30 winners of the Music From The Streets competition who were chosen from thousands of entries submitted by fans. As the Music From The Streets tour bus, with crew and host in tow, travels across the country to videotape each artist performing on their street corner in their city, viewers will gain exclusive access to the artists, getting to know about their personal lives and musical talents through special interviews and performances.
Each episode will end with a visual of the Music From The Streets merchandise, which will be available at MusicFromTheStreets.com. Fifty percent of profits from all sales will be donated to our non-profit partners.
Episode 3 will name and focus on the top 10 winners. We’ll see their initial reaction to the thrilling news of their win. We’ll learn even more about each artist – their ups and downs, their musical journey, their life’s journey. We’ll meet the superstar producers they’ll be working with to record their song for the Music From The Streets For The Streets compilation, and explain why they were paired with that particular producer. We’ll also see the reaction of some of the artists who were perhaps beloved but did not make the top 10, and we will hope to ease their disappointment by letting them know they will continue to gain national exposure by being programmed on the Music From The Streets radio station.
Episodes 4 & 5
Episodes 4 and 5 will focus on the studio recordings – five artists per episode. We’ll witness their excitement as they first meet the legendary producer they’ll be working with. We’ll watch the collaboration between the artists and producers as they establish their vision for the recording of the song. We will also surprise each artist with another one of their prizes – a special Music From The Streets in ear monitor designed by Ultimate Ear and custom fit for each artist. These exclusive monitors are exceptional for both recording and touring.
Episode 5 will conclude with a tease of the final episode – a live concert featuring the top 10 winners performing the song they’ve recorded for the Music From The Streets For The Streets compilation release.
