SPEAK UP, SING OUT
ENDING HUMAN RIGHTS ABUSES THROUGH MUSIC
ABOUT THE CONTEST
In partnership with the GRAMMY Museum, we invite students to produce original songs that take a stand against human rights abuses. Using their own voices and perspectives, students can create meaningful change on pressing issues such as sexual harassment and assault, bullying, police brutality, and other important topics related to social justice. The contest winner will perform their song at a GRAMMY-related event, or virtual arts event.
Submissions are judged by a panel of music industry professionals who have worked with artists such as Beyoncé, Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, and Kelly Clarkson.
