Austin, Texas (PRWEB) November 01, 2015
MuZicCardZ are online music video eCards of known musicians singing songs like "Happy Birthday To You" to be sent at birthdays, or Christmas songs for the holidays. Buyers can select an eCard featuring a song sung by a favorite musician, write a personal message, and schedule eCards for delivery up to a year in advance. Nine-time Grammy Award winner Ray Benson of Asleep at the Wheel is featured on the website singing “Happy Birthday To You” and “Silent Night” at http://www.muziccardz.com.
“These eCards are personal, one-on-one mini concerts!” said Tina Williamson, founder of MuZicCardZ. "Nothing like this has ever been done before. Competitor’s eCards typically feature animation over a music score. Our eCards offer music performances of beloved songs, helping you celebrate special occasions with a video performance by a musician you love.”
Cards are also offered by singer-songwriter Sara Hickman, 2010-2011 “Official State Musician of Texas (a title also held by Willie Nelson and Lyle Lovett), and blues/gospel/jazz singer Susan Arbuckle. Cards by additional musicians and new celebration categories, such as love songs for Valentine’s Day, are in the works.
“They’re fun. They’re easy to send. They’re inexpensive,” Williamson said. “You can line up all of your birthday or Christmas eCards in advance, write personal notes, schedule them, and be done!”
MuZicCardZ, a GreetingZ, LLC company, obtained the license to use the “Happy Birthday To You” song from Warner/Chappell Music. However, on September 22, 2015, a federal judge ruled that the song should be in the public domain. Warner/Chappell Music will most likely appeal that decision, so a final outcome could be many years away.
Online marketing veteran and entrepreneur Williamson was first involved with online audio and video in the late ‘90s as Vice President of Marketing for Broadcast.com, the company founded by Todd Wagner and Mark Cuban.
