Songathon launches songwriting competition for COVID-19 relief

Songathon, famous for their songwriting competitions, is launching yet another one, this time urging artists to write songs about social distancing to raise funds for coronavirus relief.

The Songathon Prompt Challenge aims to see what artist can write the catchiest song about their experience in social isolation.

Judges for the competition are RuthAnne (who has co-written hits for Britney Spears, Niall Horan, and JoJo), VÉRITÉ, and rock duo The Score.

The winning musician will help spread support and funding for GlobalGiving’s Coronavirus Relief Fund, which is helping to combat the virus worldwide.

“We’re incredibly excited about bringing together the global songwriting community for such an urgent cause. Music has the power to heal, bring us together, and spread a message,” say Songathon founders Noah Hyams and Amber Ward.

The challenge is accepting artists who are 18 and over. Submissions will be accepted from April 6 until May 1, 2020. Voting takes place from May 2-10, with the winners to be announced on May 11.
