Daily Create #tdc1380 was called ‘Shakespearean Actors Day!’ and asked that we record ourselves speaking some song lyrics in a Shakespearean style. I decided to do an extract from Demi Lovato’s ‘Confident‘ as it it a song I have listened to quite a bit recently and relate to a lot.

This reminded me very much of the viral challenge #15SecondShakespeare where people read 15 seconds of pop song lyrics in Shakespearean style. It caught on to various celebrities who often challenged other celeb friends to get involved.
A personal favourite was by Karen Gillan;
