As most of you would seem to have already noticed, we have begun the soft launch of Be The Singer and #IamTheVicar. Be The Singer is our very own organic, fairtrade, no-artists-or-songs-murdered-in-the-making version of the X Factor (The V Factor, as we are calling it) and #IamTheVicar is a photo competition for your photos of The Vicar – “the man who isn’t there”.

Given that we are not going to the press until the official launch at the start of next month, the response has been incredible. You are all really wonderful (but you know that already).

Keep it up. Keep sharing and let us know if there are any bugs we need to fix!
