A crowdsourced ditty that'll make you feel good...and do good

Popular YouTube partner charlieissocoollike has assembled a merry band of YouTubers to do some good this holiday season. They've released a new, completely crowd-sourced, song called "I've Got Nothing," which Charlie says was "created with nothing but the good will of the people on the internet." Their goal is to get to the top of the UK pop charts, simply by distributing the video on YouTube, and donate all of the proceeds from the song to the charity, Children in Need

One interesting factoid: The lyrics of the song are made up of YouTube comments, compiled into a song by another YouTuber (don't worry Moms, they're totally kid-friendly). Have a listen:



If you like the song you can download it on ITunes, where apparently it's already up to #25 in the United Kingdom, and know that the proceeds are going to kids in need.

the lyrics to this song were created by people submitting lines of lyrics in youtube comments, there was a contest to create the best melody, the producer is a random youtuber and the singers sent in audition videos, not to mention the video is full of random youtubers.. this is 100 percent a youtube creation: for charity!! LOVE IT!!! CHARTJACKERS = <3

Dear CitizenTube:

I know this is not the correct place to be writing this, but CitizenTube has linked to one of my healthcare videos in the past.

Well, I made a new detailed healthcare video...that has been very well received, and now it has been false flagged and taken down!

The title was LiberalViewer Deliberately Distorts the Facts, Part 5

Please help me get it back up.
