Early last year we launched the Songs for Social Change Contest. We received around 350 entries and the songs covered a range of contemporary social issues including: war and peace, homelessness, bullying, economic disparity, police brutality and more. We had many good entries, and when we got down to the finalists, one of the judges said “I can’t really pick a winner because they are all good!” But we did select a winner and they were the group One World Tribe who entered the song “We Are One.” You can listen on the player below.
The runners-up artists and their songs in alphabetical order are as follows:
Annachristie and the Sapphires, “Police Brutality”
Bob Corely, “Song for Belgrade”
Kate Diaz, “Down to Earth”
Chloe Jean, “In War”
Kai Love, “We Are One (Put Down Your Guns)”
We are in the process of making a compilation CD with the winning song and the song’s of the runners-up. The compilation has been manufactured and we will start taking orders from March 20th onward (come back then for the download link.)
