With Proclaim, you can add a song with a simple search. We'll include all the right lyrics and help you auto-format your text with Smart Media templates.
To add get started…
1. Add a new song item.
Select Song from the Add Item menu.
2. Search for a song.
In the search field, add a song title.
Three categories of songs display.
- My Songs: any songs you've imported or used before in your presentation
- SongSelect CCLI: any songs linked to via your SongSelect Account
- Faithlife Hymnbase: public domain songs available at music.faithlife.com
To preview a song's lyrics, hover over the title and the lyrics will display to the right. Select a song to add it to your song item. Once you add a song, all the attached metadata (i.e., copyright info, your personal CCLI number, etc.) also enters your presentation.
3. Adjust your lyrics.
All available lyrics display. You can add your own custom slide order by making adjustments in the verse bar (learn more).
You can adjust how many lyrics display on a single slide by adding a blank line between lyrics. For songs items, each new blank line creates a line break automatically.
Note: If you always sing a song the same way, you don't have to manually re-create the slide each time. Learn more about reusing previously created items.
4. Apply a background.
Select Browse Media from the Background dropdown menu to add a background to your song slide.
Once you find a background, apply it to your current slide. When you Apply as Smart Media, the slides text styling will automatically update as you make changes to it. Learn more about working with Smart Media.
