Sony's "SuperSong" Music Contest Kicks Off
Sony is running a global music contest for aspiring songwriters to contribute to the Official Album of the 2014 FIFA World Cup.
As an official FIFA Partner in the "Digital Life" category,
Sony and companies from across the Sony Group, including Sony
Music Entertainment, Sony Pictures Television, and Sony Mobile
Communications are collaborating to bring music fans the
opportunity of a lifetime. The "SuperSong" world-wide music
contest is starting December 2nd 2013 and invites musicians as
well as music and football fans from around the world to submit
their videos of original song proposals (videos with original
lyrics) at www.supersong.com.
Ricky Martin will be among the judges panel to hand-pick the
winning song, which he will also record for the Official Album
of the 2014 FIFA World Cup.
All submissions will be evaluated by a judging team, who will
narrow the songs down to a top 20. A panel of experts from
Sony Music Entertainment and online fans will then vote for
their favorite songs to select the finalists. From these
finalists, Ricky Martin and the "SuperSong" judging team will
choose and announce the ultimate winner in February 2014. The
winner will travel to Puerto Rico to see Ricky Martin and a top
music producer record the final version of the song for the
Official Album of the FIFA World Cup, which will be released by
Sony Music Entertainment in 2014. The winner and a guest will
also travel to Brazil where they will be VIP guests of Sony at
the final match of the 2014 FIFA World Cup in July 2014, and
receive additional prizes from Sony.
The entire creative process and studio recording will be
documented by Sony Pictures Television for a television
special, culminating with the world premiere of the "SuperSong"
music video. The program will be shown globally across
television, digital and mobile platforms via Sony Pictures
Television?s many channels (Crackle, AXN, SET and SPIN).
