I appreicate this is a strange request...I need to commission a cover/parody of Estelle's American Boy ft Kanye West. Does anyone know any musicians who might be able to help me out - I will do the lyrics but I am totally non-musical?!

The quickest way, is to use the karaoke version of this track, and just find two singers to provide the vocals: you'd be saving a lot of time and money this way.

As for the vocalists, I'd suggest you place an ad in some stage schools.

That depends on what the OP wants to do with it, Jules62. It's still copyright material.

There are several free ads sites for finding a singer but I wonder if it's worth trying Mandy which is mainly for film and tv production. A lot of actors sing and they might be a lot more enthusiastic to do a parody. I've found actors from there really quickly and for projects with no money to pay them.

What did we do before the internet?

I often ask the same question, how did we ever plan holidays or buy anything.

Posters, fliers and footwork. Still worth doing I'm sure!
