Um I don't know how to add a singer on to this list. Could somebody please help me? Or add to this list for me?

Sailor PokeMoon2    Thu, 08/11/2018 - 02:01

Well I don't really know much about this guy (because I never listened to his music before) but I will give a link instead if that is OK?

If you like his lyrics or music you can add some songs by him and create his artist page. Then just write the link to his page here in the comments.

Sailor PokeMoon2    Thu, 08/11/2018 - 02:58

Actually... I do NOT like their lyrics or their music

maluca    Thu, 08/11/2018 - 02:54

These artists don't have entries on lyricstranslate yet. I add the artists that have an artist page here, sometimes I add the page myself if I think the artist is interesting...

Sailor PokeMoon2    Thu, 08/11/2018 - 02:57

Oh OK I guess that could explain why those artists were not on this list. Of course I heard about the first artist that I mentioned before because his death was all over the news in my country.

If you click on "Actions -> Add new song" you just type in the name of the artist and if he doesn't have a page yet you create a new page for him if you submit lyrics.
