Meet A Megastar ft. Rich Hennessy

Rich Hennessy.
Knows that loss can lead to gain. 
You hear it when he sings.

Rich Hennessy’s voice is smooth. Like a fine cognac. Over the course of Megastar’s December Spotlight Competition, the singer/songwriter made his performance of “Tidal Wave,” a Rich Hennessy original, look easy with his distinct vocal quality.

Rich may seem to have it all, but he once lost everything when his childhood home in New Jersey went up in flames. That tragedy reframed what was important to him. Since then, he’s dedicated himself completely to music. And it shows. In fact, he came in second in the very first Megastar competition one year ago. This dude has staying power.

See Rich perform his original song on the Megastar app.

Olivia Thai.
A Megastar you’ll want to listen on loop.

Despite posting her first video on Youtube in 2007 as an inside joke, Olivia Thai has amassed over 21 million views.

Olivia hasn’t always known she would make it this far. She’s faced her fair share of challenges; she emancipated herself from her parents at the age of 16, and struggled with almost debilitating self-doubt. It was only when Olivia challenged herself to try something she never thought she could do – songwriting – that things really turned around. Songwriting completely changed her life, and in over a little more than two months in late 2014, she had written over 100 original songs.

Her talent is undeniable; with just a loop pedal, and her ability to sing and play guitar, piano, and violin, Olivia is a able to create sweeping pop epics all on her own. The combination of her unique persona and thought-provoking original music has gained worldwide media coverage, from winning Taiwan Idol, starring on American Idol XV, countless radio appearances, and numerous endorsements.

To her 150,000 loyal supporters, which she calls her #oliviathaiarmy, she has been the unique, down-to-earth combination of a singer, pianist, guitarist, violinist, entrepreneur, linguist, culinary artist, and now ... a Megastar.  ;)

Tim Oliver, an American Original 

Singer-songwriter Tim Oliver made it into the Top 10 finalists of Megastar’s first worldwide talent competition - not too shabby for a homegrown boy from Columbus, Ohio. 

His smokey voice, backed by piano and guitar is comfort food for Megastar listeners, delicious and satisfying, plaintive and soulful, original yet very American. Fans really propelled him to the top and there’s no question why. 

Tim’s back already for the December Spotlight event in which the winner will take home $25K. Can Tim’s Americana crooning push him to the top this time around?

Get to know him in his next live stream on the Megastar app.

Megastar is launching a one-month global competition — The Megastar December Spotlight: 2017, to close out the year with a bang, and launch some new winner with a $25,000 top prize in early January. Here’s how it works.

Performers, you submit one video to the Megastar app. And only one video. Make it your best performance video. Make it amazing. 🎉💥✨💥🎉

Fans will be voting on the app all month long. So the sooner you get your video up, the more time you have to gather votes. 🙌

There is no limit to the number of performers who can enter. (Of course, there are rules written by attorneys, and we encourage you to read them here. For instance, you have to live in 🇬🇧 Great Britain, 🇿🇦  South Africa, 🇨🇦 Canada, the 🇺🇸  US, 🇳🇿 New Zealand or 🇦🇺  Australia. You must be at least 18 years old to enter. You cannot submit a video previously submitted to the Megastar App. And more stuff you need to read.)

PRIZES. FIRST PRIZE: $25,000 USD. SECOND PRIZE: $5,000 USD. THIRD PRIZE: $2,500 USD.

But there is so much more to this than winning the top three prizes! 💸💰😎

GET KNOWN. Check it out: more than 350,000 users have already installed the Megastar app. In six countries. So when you post a video, you have an opportunity to be seen by hundreds of thousands of users. 📸

PERFORM LIVE. You can livestream throughout the competition, making your personality personally felt, your brand known, your talent experienced first-hand by lots of people 👩‍🎤 — fans you can talk to while you’re livestreaming! HINT: In the first Worldwide Tournament, performers who livestreamed did on average four times better than performers who didn’t.

GET CROWDFUNDING. Fans can send you gifts  🎁 — that’s right, real moolah you can use to fund your efforts. And you can give gifts back. Come on now, be generous!

BUILD YOUR FANBASE. Fans who like what you’re doing will follow you. Fellow performers can support and collaborate with each other. Followers are notified when you’re livestreaming. You can communicate with them directly. 📝  You could be adding 350,000 more fans to your base!

THE TIMING IS NOW: ⏰  The Megastar December Spotlight kicks off this weekend!

FANS VOTE on your video through the end of the year until mid-week in the first week of January. 🎟

JUDGES REVIEW the top 20 videos to make sure you’re following the rules and meet all the criteria. They will graduate 10 top videos to the finals round. 👍

FANS DECIDE THE WINNERS. In the last five days, fans will decide who in the top 10 go home with the big prizes. But in a sense, everyone’s a winner. You get seen. You get heard. You grow your base. You hone your craft. You hone your video product.

This is important stuff. This is your opportunity.

WINNERS WILL BE ANNOUNCED JANUARY 10, 2018.🔥🔥🔥
