THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS AT SONGATHON

HERE'S HOW SONGATHON WORKS

  1. YOU'LL BE ASSIGNED TO A GROUP WITH 2 OTHER TALENTED SONGWRITERS - Everyone invited to participate at Songathon has something great to bring to the table musically, so no need to worry about being put into a 'bad' group! 
  2. YOU'LL BE GIVEN A WRITING PROMPT - Every co-writing group at Songathon will be writing a song based on the same prompt. Be creative with it, and make sure your song stands out!
  3. 24-HOURS LATER, YOU'LL PRESENT YOUR NEWLY-WRITTEN SONG TO THE AUDIENCE - A preliminary judging panel will determine which of the groups will be invited to perform their song at the Songathon Finale, where a live audience will vote on their favorites!
