Yesterday (Backup Version) A Parody Music Video

Finally the world can see what we've been showing in our Backup Central Live! shows.  This video is the first music parody song we produced, and the first music video that we did.  I hope you enjoy it.

Yesterday (Backup Version) from on Vimeo.

The musician, singer and actor for the video is none other than Cameron Romney, a talented young man I met in my daughters’ show choir. He’s 16 yo and did all the instruments, vocals, and sound mixing for this song. In case you’re curious, yes, he’s related to Mitt Romney. 1st cousin, twice removed, or something like that.

This is the first in a series of these videos that I’ll be publishing on TrueBit.TV. Make sure to check out our educational videos at TrueBit.TV.
