HOW DOES JUDGING WORK?
The top 20 songs according to Facebook likes (on the Songs for Life 2015 submission page ONLY) will be reviewed by the Songs for Life Judging Panel. They will select the final 10 songs to be included on the Songs for Life album. We encourage you to share your song via Facebook, Twitter and other social media to get as many Facebook likes as possible. Also consider that when you post to your personal Facebook page, only a small percentage of your “friends” will actually see that post. For about $6 you can “boost” your Facebook post. This is how ALL of your Facebook friends can see the post.
IS THERE A MAXIMUM TIME LENGTH TO AN ENTERED SONG?
HOW MANY SONGS CAN I ENTER?
There is no limit to the number of songs you may enter. Whatever you feel would be inspiring and uplifting for cancer patients is welcome.
ARE THERE ANY AGE REQUIREMENTS TO ENTER?
There are no age requirements. However, if the entrant is under 18 years of age, the signature of a parent or guardian will be required if the submission is selected for the Songs for Life 2015 album.
CAN IN ENTER MY SONG IF I AM OUTSIDE THE US?
DOES MY SONG HAVE TO BE AN ORIGINAL SONG?
Songs for Life accepts both original and cover songs.
WHAT IF I ALREADY HAVE A PROFESSIONAL RECORDING?
If you have a recording that has already been professionally recorded, the Songs for Life judging panel will determine whether or not your song needs to be re-recorded. If the submission is acceptable, you will not need to re-record your submission.
WHAT HAPPENS IF I’M SELECTED?
If you are selected for the 2015 Songs for Life album, you will be given up to $2,000 towards recording studio fees to record at Soularium Studios in Alpine, UT and up to $1,500 towards travel expenses if needed. If selected, you will be asked to sign a contract with terms and conditions for your final submission including the deadline date for the final recording.
