Sing Forward! Remix Contest

Sing Forward

Today is the culmination of a lot of work by a lot of cool people, and I wanted to make sure we shared it with you.  “Sing Forward” is a music video and grassroots promotional campaign designed to make sure YOU know the healthcare options available to you via healthcare.gov.  The song includes our good friends Myles Coyne, Anna Vogelzang, Shawn Pierce, Kyle Pfister and many more.

As I mentioned in my post over on the Murfie blog, it can be difficult for entrepreneurs, musicians and other creative professionals to know what coverage is available to them.  According to a recent national survey of artists conducted by the Future of Music Coalition, 43% of musicians lack health coverage – more than twice the average rate.  The more personal income derived from art, the less likely the artist is to be insured.

Pursuing creative, risky or bold endeavors should not mean having to risk your health.  Sing Forward aims to guide artists toward protection.  In addition to the music video, which can be viewed at SingForwardWI.com, Ninjas for Health are promoting an awesome remix contest.

Mine All Mine is proud to sponsor the remix contest, along with MadCity Music Exchange, Urban Community Arts Network, Murfie, High Noon Saloon and other Wisconsin music supporters.  To participate, submit your remix, cover or singalong in audio or video format via the Sing Forward site by February 14th.

Winners will be announced March 1st, and prizes include:

  • Mine All Mine Records Prize Pack
  • $50 Overture Center gift certificate
  • 2 True Endeavors concert tickets
  • albums from Strictly Discs and MadCity Music Exchange
  • 1 year of Murfie Gold + $10 Murfie credit
  • $50 cash prize from Ninjas for Health

Contest: What is this?

What is this?  The first person to correctly identify this video will win a 100% FREE copy of the next TWO Mine All Mine Records physical releases!  This includes John Praw‘s upcoming self-titled album out next Tuesday, March 8th.

Email contests@mamrecords.com with your answer.  International players welcome!

UPDATE: We have a winner of our contest!  Andrew C. correctly guessed that the shitty, shitty video with 22k+ well-deserved thumbs down is Kim Kardashian’s new “song”.  Congratulations, Andrew!
