I was able to watch DaisyKary's video a few days before it was blocked. I started a post in the forum, requesting her to post that video in the Fan Videos section.

I also saw a tweet from DaisyKary, and sent her a tweet with the same request.

One can only hope.

I tried to watch the video that Kary recorded at Longwood Gardens and it is still blocked. I hope this gets resolved soon. I really want to see Mike holding that note. Many Chasers have remarked that it was especially moving that night. It would be a shame if those of us not there could not see it.

Seems like if SNC had permission to record the song on Six Pack Vol. 2, and tape a performance of it at Harrah's for video broadcast in the PBS special, fans should have permission to upload video of SNC performing it as well. Hope this gets straightened out- I want to see footage of Mike holding the note for what seemed like forever at Longwood Gardens last week!

I did a search for Straight No Chaser Like A Prayer, and there were 178 listed. Many of those were fan videos that I have seen in the past. Most of them seem to be posted in 2010 or 2011, so perhaps only the 2012 videos are being blocked? Very strange.

Hi Mary,

Unfortunately, this appears to be a publishing issue for the underlying music. YouTube uses complex algorithms to identify songs and notify publishing administrators of any potential infringements. I am not sure this can be resolved, although we are looking into the matter further.

Thanks for your patience in the matter.

All the best,

    I have noticed that YouTube is blocking my personal fan video of "Like A Prayer" from Shreveport this year, and the most recent one posted from Hyannis, MA http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fYHyItRfMKY&list=UUTiAS-sRUqfibmB_wEeSLog... which is from mizikem23, so I can see they are still at it. Can SNC or Atlantic Records tell us what the scoop is on this? It says it only blocks it from US viewers, which is most of us Chasers. I was going to file a complaint form, but would rather wait to hear from SNC or Atlantic Records, or whomever is in the know on this.

    All the Best,
