Vlogger Carrie Hope Fletcher launches singing competition to celebrate THE HUNGER GAMES: MOCKINGJAY PART 1

YouTube vlogging sensation Carrie Hope Fletcher has joined forces with Lionsgate UK to launch an incredible new singing competition in celebration of THE HUNGER GAMES: MOCKINGJAY – PART 1 releasing on Blu-ray, DVD and Digitally from Monday 16 March 2015.

Carrie has covered the hit song “The Hanging Tree” on her YouTube channel at http://youtu.be/wS1MGdxnBpw, which is sung a cappella by Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) in Mockingjay: Part 1. Due to the song’s popularity, Jennifer Lawrence scored her first UK Top 20 single with it back in December last year, so Carrie decided to work up her own version and encourage Hunger Games fans to do the same.

Entries of your take on the song need to be uploaded with the hashtag #MockingjayCover. Compliments of Lionsgate UK, Carrie will reward the best entry with a pair of tickets to THE HUNGER GAMES: MOCKINGJAY – PART 2 premiere; this is the last film in the franchise so tickets to this event are gold dust! The premiere is due to take place late 2015.

With the first Mockingjay film as the crowned #1 film at the 2014 US box office, Carrie’s YouTube followers will no doubt be excited to get involved in this activity, as well as look forward to the film releasing on DVD, Blu-ray and as a limited edition Blu-ray Steelbook from 16 March 2015. For eager fans it will be available across digital platforms 24 hours earlier on Sunday 15 March.

With over 550,000 YouTube subscribers and 350,000 Twitter followers, actress, singer, songwriter and author Carrie Hope Fletcher (brother of McBusted’s Tom Fletcher) is currently starring as Eponine in London's Les Miserables. She recently received the 2014 WhatsOnStage Award for “Best Takeover in A Role” in recognition of her performance. Her debut book is due for release in April 2015.
