The Power of Video Montage with a Custom Song

Step 1: Begin Your Creative Journey

Start by visiting the Songfinch website. Here, you'll have the opportunity to personalize a song that resonates with your specific occasion, whether it's a birthday, anniversary, farewell, or simply a meaningful moment. The aim is to capture the sentiment and essence of your experience.

Step 2: Share Your Story

Songfinch invites you to share your story through a series of thoughtful questions. These prompts help you articulate your emotions, experiences, and the essence of your memories. By delving into the details, you provide the songwriters with the raw materials they need to craft lyrics that truly reflect your narrative.

Step 3: The Art of Musical Composition

Once you've shared your story, Songfinch's team of skilled songwriters and musicians get to work, with a turnaround of four to seven days, depending on the selected delivery option.

They'll create a melody that complements your narrative, drawing from a wide range of musical styles. This melodic composition aims to capture the emotions you've expressed, transforming them into a unique and heartfelt song.

Step 4: Bringing it All Together

Once your custom song is ready, Songfinch presents you with a professionally recorded version. This is where VidDay comes into play. As you assemble your collaborative video using VidDay's platform — whether it's a group video gift, a slideshow, or a montage — you have the opportunity to add your custom Songfinch song to your VidDay.
