The fact that this is sponsored content does not diminish the fact that we are about to introduce you to an app called Zya that is definitely going to be your next addiction. You’re welcome.
I may have missed my calling, you guys.
I’ve always suspected it. In high school, I was in show choir, had roles in all the musicals, and even did a few singing competitions. I didn’t win any of them, but I figured I was just too cutting edge for those stuffy old songs. I took years and years of piano lessons growing up and spent hours playing and singing my heart out to every bit of popular sheet music I could get my hands on. I just knew I was one box of Miss Clairol Sunset Red #5RR way from being the next Tori Amos (For all of you youngsters, Tori Amos was *the* angsty girl pianist/singer of the 80s. She was, and still is, perfection.)
Heck, I didn’t even let my boring real life as a doctor get in my way. In medical school, I was one of the founding members of a girls a cappella group! We called ourselves the “Fallopian Tunes”…until the administration deemed that “too racy” and we were forced to change out name to “The Biorhythms”. (See, I told you. Cutting edge.) We even recorded a CD. What can I say. It was Nashville in the early 90s. Studio time came cheaply.
So when we were asked to review an app called Zya that is all about making music, I was totally IN! In this app you get to build a band. You pick the style of music you want to make, the base riffs, the drum lines, the vocals…. and BAM. You can choose to make music based on popular songs or you can strike out totally on your own making new jams. You can even record your own vocals if you want! Zya makes it so easy that anyone of any age can make music to rival Pharrell Williams. (Aren’t you youngsters impressed with that reference? I thought so!)
I only ran into one problem. Lucy.
You see, I downloaded the app and then let her play with my iPhone while I started a load of laundry. She loved it. When I was ready to play myself she did NOT want to let me have a turn. I had to pry her fingers off the phone so I could have a shot at it, and even then I had to promise to let her have it back before bedtime.
Once I started playing, I totally saw why. If you’ve ever held a hairbrush up to the bathroom mirror and rocked your way through your morning routine, you will *love* this app. I played with it for over an hour before I even realized how much time had gone by. Only Pinterest can usually cause me to lose time like that. That’s how much fun it was!
And now, I’d like to unveil my latest creation. Unlike Lucy, I *do* like to share!
This is a little tune I like to call It’s Bedtime. I decided to take the best of a popular song and add my own personal spin. Now, I have never before tried to rap. But I am hip to what the kids like these days, so I decided to lay down some mean rhymes.
See, what did I tell you? I totally missed my calling, didn’t I? Isn’t it hard to believe I’ve never even rapped before?!
Miley Cyrus had better watch out. I may give her a run for her money and take her twerking spot next to Robin Thicke at this year’s Grammys. I wonder if I could get Ashley to get up on stage, too?
If you make your own masterpiece on Zya, leave the link in the comments! We’ll have a riff-off!!
