OK all of you aspiring songwriters from around the world have been counting down the days and hours until the official launching of a unique songwriting lyrics contest that will bring people together in one song. “Oceans of Love – The Song the World Wrote” officially opened its Web doors today and began taking entries for this extraordinary lyrics contest.
This contest is hoping to bring people together to promote love, peace and paying it forward and to help win the battle against cancer. The BC Cancer Foundation (http://www.bccancerfoundation.com) is the grateful recipient of a percentage of the net proceeds from entry dues.
What makes the contest so unique is that anyone can enter a line, and visitors to the Web site will vote at the end of each week to determine which entry will become the next line of the song. The contest will run for 24 weeks and all entries are taken online at the official Web site – songtheworldwrote.com. The next phase of the contest will be to write the music and finally, have the song recorded by an international recording artist.
Sounds like another “WE ARE THE WORLD” rendition….wonder if Michael Jackson will be available?….
The BC Cancer Foundation is honored to be one of the two charities chosen to deliver this message of hope,” states Nicholas Locke, Senior Vice President, Development, BC Cancer Foundation.
The song’s title “Oceans of Love – The Song the World Wrote” and its first line were written by Emmy Award Winning Songwriter A.J. Gundell. A new line will be added each Monday morning.
