    I apologize for any mistakes, and for the amount of time this took to be released. Thank you to everyone who participated, despite this being totally random, hah. It was a difficult song to do, so I hope you enjoy. There may or may not be a part where someone's singing, but not on the screen, idk...Lines were confusingly filled/taken. >___>

    [Smiling together
    We'll be together,] [PaW]

    [What better time than here and now,
    to stand out from the crowd?
    Let's step out towards a bright future!] [Fearless]

    Smiling together.

    [Every day and every hour,
    The world continues to turn.] [What?]

    [And with every life that fades,
    There's another life that's born. ] [NemesisPrime]

    [Even though it may not show,
    Some people hide it deep inside,] [Krowley]

    [There's a fragile part that's there,
    That's often covered up with pride.] [Jayn]

    { ♥ } Trying to protect ourselves, [greater_bloo, Fuzzy]

    { ♥ }We still need someone else, [Cookiie, Andrew]

    { ♥ } To guide us when we feel we'll break apart, [Ryan, Jayn]

    [Oh, how to love?] [Jayn]

    You still don't understand, [Mish, Krowley]

    [But maybe I can help,] [NemesisPrime]

    All you have to do is reach out and take my hand. [NemesisPrime, greater_bloo, Excasr]

    Smiling together [Fuzzy]

    { ♥ } We'll be together, [Ryan]

    [Rap]

    [Do you disagree?
    Think we're just playing games?
    Well, it's no big deal. We just don't think the same.] [Fuzzy]

    [I don't care who you are, I don't care, what you do.
    As long as you're being true to yourself--yeah, you.] [Excasr]

    [In this world, we tend to let a lot pass us by.
    We have to open our hearts, and I'll tell you why.] [Cookiie]

    [If you open your heart, then you open your mind,
    And we'll all come together, to smile and shine.] [Mish]

    { ♥ } It's like a wish upon a star,
    In the middle of the night. [Mish, Krowley ]

    [As long as we know it's there,
    We're always reaching within sight.] [Esther]

    As we look up to the sky,
    Life's pain will pass us by, [Cookiie, What?, PaW, Ryan ]

    { ♥ } Smiling together~ [Andrew]

    Wait, just a minute. [Excasr]

    [The world can still be a pretty scary place.] [Fearless]

    What counts is inside, [Cookiie]

    [Where all the fear starts to melt away. ] [Jayn]

    It's not all a waste, [Fuzzy, Excasr]

    [Remember there's a line between the past and the future,] NemesisPrime]

    You can break the mold, [NemesisPrime]

    You just have to seek out the light.

    { ♥ }Even when you try to block it out, [Jayn, Ryan]

    [Sometimes the scary voices are still loud,] [Ryan]

    { ♥ }Sometimes, even when you try to escape, [What?]

    [You still remember your hurt and your pain.] [Cookiie]

    [If there was a place we could run away to,] [Chevalier]

    That sounded hectic to put together, the song is prety fast paced especially since it's a translation of the original song. Chev, I thought your voice was a bit weird at first, but you actually sing really well. Surprised? I am. Don't know why...
    All the lines I tried really hard to do were blurred out by the amount of other people singing. I could've saved myself a lot less stress if I just went with some of the recordings I had. Ah well.
    I'm slowly accepting my singing voice since doing these projects, before I thought it was utterly useless, but I believe that though I may not have any talent, I can add a bit more to it in terms of tone, emotion and personality. I sing more all the time now. That makes me a little happier all the time. Thanks for that, KHV Chorus!

    All I can say is that Jayn, this out of all the Chorus vids so far, shows your talent to slice and dice together the multiple voices together and make it work extrmemly well.
    This must be kind of like your last one for a bit, seeing as you have hired underlings, no? You may do the odd video?

    Great work again guys, this was a toughie, you did great!

    Wow, this turned out way better than I was expecting, haha. It was such a tough song that I thought it'd be a little bit jumbled - especially towards the end with the kinda fast-paced verse that everyone sings - but it sounded great! It's amazing that each week we somehow manage to surpass the last.

    EDIT: who says 'so just smile'? P:

    GAH I need a better mic, this Rockband mic won't cut it anymore! *breaks in half* lol jk. But yeah my parts were low in volume didn't really think about the volume when recording (was way more concerned with the puffs) so maybe I should up it a tiny bit next time? Though I should invest in a new mic it was great when I first started voice acting but I'm beginning to see its limits. I mean I was like completely drowned out in the parts where everyone sings lol.

    Anyways great job guys and gals! This is my first one so I don't really have a clear picture on if this is the best out of all but I do think it's an improvement overall in terms of being in synch and singing. Now as for the individual performances I can't really critique since this is kinda different from voice acting and let's face it I'm a noob at this, however you all did wonderful in my opinion!Though Chevalier around 3:09 that part surprised me in a good way you made the part yours and it works awesome! :D

    Great Job Jayne on putting it together, just thinking about doing that myself scares me! XD I agree with Peace and War about this making me sing more, I only did two and since then I've been singing all the time in the shower lol (too much info?). And thanks Excasr, I think you did pretty awesome yourself! :D

    PS: Andrew has a clone!

    Oh my lord, that was gorgeous.
    Like, seriously. I found myself moving to the beat a little, and it wasn't just the music.
    You all did so well, and... well I really don't know what to say but all that.
    greater_bloo, let me just say, your voice is awesome. I didn't notice any mic problems from you, so I wouldn't worry too much.
    Everyone was outstanding this time. Simply amazing.

    Thank you ; ~ ; It really means a lot.

    I'm really just no good at recording for other people, since my voice is so peculiarly bad. Specially now, since I'm sick and sort of had to rush things.

    my voice isn't normally this weird, I swear D;

    Wow, this song sounded super fun! Now I really wish I'd join this one, but oh well, I would have probably stunk it up anyway xD It was very nice.

    Loved this one! The song choice was great and it was pulled together nicely considering how difficult it looked. And I loved the end with 'so just smile' xD

    Great work guys. Definitely one of your best ones.

    PS. Still think Cookiie sounds unbelievably cute. xD

    Oh great job with this one then Jayn! I really liked it!
    Ah I knew, it was Andrew's voice, just thought it was Jayn because she added her last part in Don't Stop Believing. XD

    @greater_bloo thank you. :D Your voice is awesome! Need to do this more often!

    It is already in my MP4, and I'm listening to it the all day. LOL XD

    Not enough empahise on the accent, Taco! : P

    But seriously, your voice is really good actually, hearing on the Podcast and then signing, I would have never of put those two voices together, at all.
    You're very good indeed, I hope to hear you on here more. And without being ill, since that'll make you sound even better! : D

    The majority of people are unable to pick out their own voice in those parts. It's okay though, we're meant to sound like one entity, singing in unison. c:

    This is really great, its among my favorites with Don't Stop Believin' and Simple and Clean. It sounds like a very evenly talented choir that's showcasing everyone's strengths. Amazing job editing, Jayn this can't have been easy.

    I'm in a similar place, I'm finally starting to accept that I have a decent lower register too. I've always focused on developing my falsetto and belting, and my inability to go low really made it hard to sing most pop songs. I know you can't hear it in the video, but I was pleasantly surprised that I was able to hit some of the lower notes in this song, and I think some of my best lines were sung fairly low. Okay, part of it was because I was extremely tired when I sang this and didn't have time to warm up my higher register, but still. I'm glad to have found some confidence in my voice, and I'm glad to see it developing. And I've got KHV Chorus to thank.

    The first person's voice makes me laugh, lol (I think it was PAW? Yeah I can't remember)

    This was well put together and sung. I like it it!
