Songify the News (formerly Auto-Tune the News) is a web series by The Gregory Brothers (and Evan's wife Sarah), under the YouTube username "schmoyoho" (accent on the yo), that consists of taking news clips and applying the Auto-Tune filter to them. Combined with backing vocals, clever editing, masterful tunes and witty lyrics, the result is often Awesome Music. In recent days, shorter songs made using a single source have also become wildly popular; this "Songify THIS!" series seems to have taken over the original "Auto-Tune the News", which seems to have been renamed "Songify the News" for more recent entries.
