Seattle Seahawks SOAR to the Super Bowl Once Again

On Sunday afternoon, the Seattle Seahawks defeated the Green Bay Packers 28-22 in a thrilling overtime victory to advance to the Super Bowl on Sunday, February 1.

You may remember that Marie, Arielle, and I did a song for the Seattle Seahawks last year on the eve of their Super Bowl appearance.  Unsurprisingly, this video has picked up some more hits this past week, pushing towards the 200,000 view mark.

We’ll be recording a new song for this year’s Super Bowl run sometime this week.  Get ready…it’s going to be a lot of fun!

In the meantime, enjoy last year’s song called “SOAR”, a parody of Katy Perry’s smash hit “ROAR”.


From YouTube Parody to CenturyLink Field

When we put together the SOAR video 8 months ago, little did we know that it would go semi-viral (as of this writing, it has 167,000 views on YouTube).  It landed us a live performance at the Seattle Seahawks party at the Plaza of Nations on July 4.

And just last week, Marie landed her biggest gig to date:  singing the national anthems at CenturyLink Field in Seattle before the Super Bowl rematch between the champion Seahawks and the visiting Denver Broncos on September 21!

September 21 will mark the Seahawks’ annual “Canada Day” game where they honour their Canadian fans for their support – hence the 2 anthems.  And it’s fitting that Marie will be singing before the Super Bowl rematch…as we made our song specifically for the 2014 Super Bowl.

Needless to say, I’m super proud of Marie and extremely excited for her.  She’s worked really hard over the years honing her craft, and she deserves all the good things coming to her.  And given Ariana Grande’s spectacular performance earlier tonight before the Seahawks’ win over Green Bay, Marie has some big shoes (and vocal pipes) to fill.  But I know she will be just fine.  In fact, I predict that she’ll SOAR!

Our Seahawks music video almost never happened.

On Sunday, January 19 I texted Marie and asked her what she thought about doing a Seahawks song for the week leading up to Super Bowl 48 on February 2.  She replied with an emphatic yes.

The idea was born.
The idea was born.

SOAR – Seattle Seahawks Super Bowl Song (Parody of Katy Perry’s “ROAR”)

We’re used to making songs about the Vancouver Canucks but for this week we’ll be focusing on the Seattle Seahawks as they look ahead to Sunday’s Super Bowl where they’ll take on the Denver Broncos.

Once again, I brought together two of the most talented and lovely ladies around to help me:  Marie Hui and Arielle Tuliao.

We touch on Richard Sherman and the Legion of Boom, Marshawn Lynch, Russell Wilson, Percy Harvin, and of course, the 12th man.

Can’t wait until Sunday:  the Seahawks are gonna SOAR!

Clay’s Canucks Compositions: The Music of the 2011-2012 Season

As Boston’s elimination from the Stanley Cup Playoffs brought sweet music (and small consolation) to the ears of Vancouver Canucks fans, I reflected back to my music-related Clay’s Canucks Commentaries for the season.  There were four in total and included many of my friends and family members…all more talented than I am (there’s a reason why I only play the piano and don’t sing).  A few quick facts:

-the four videos total over 19,000 hits on YouTube
-they’ve been featured on Puck Daddy, Global TV and Canucks.com
-my guests include an anthem singer, an actress, viral video stars, my sons, my church buddies, and a foreign exchange student
-we cover Michael Jackson, Katy Perry, Adele, Justin Bieber, Journey, and the incomparable Bruce Hornsby and the Range
