NEW SHEET MUSIC COMPILATION AND SINGING COMPETITION LAUNCHED TODAY
Robin’s new sheet music compilation Robin – Kaikki hitit is released today. Due to the high demand, Robin – Kaikki hitit features an extensive gathering of sheet music to 18 of Robin’s hit songs, as well as a wide variety of photos from his phenomenal career. Robin wants to encourage people of all ages to sing and make music either alone or together with a band. That is why the book features melody notations, chords, lyrics and accompaniment suggestions for drums, bass, guitar and keyboards.
Today also marks the launch of the #robinkaikkihitit competition on Instagram, where Robin is searching for singers and bands to perform at the competition’s grand finale show at the Hard Rock Café in Helsinki on May 28th. Robin will launch the competition today at 4 pm on his Instagram channel: http://instagram.com/robinpackalen . You can check out the official rules of the competition below.
The Yhdessä Super Deluxe special edition rose straight to the top of the official Finnish album chart on Sunday. All five of Robin’s albums have accomplished the same. He has sold a record-breaking 560.000 albums in just four years.
