Submission Phase Update Vol.4

Dear Beyond Music family,

As the curtain has fallen on the submission phase for Beyond Music album Vol.4 - "Social Change," we're thrilled by the wonderful journey we've embarked on together. Your joint effort has birthed 196 songs, each a testament to your boundless creativity and unwavering commitment to making a difference through music. Our community has flourished in recent months, welcoming a wave of new members who have enthusiastically contributed to our shared passion.

Your collective creations have transcended borders, bridging continents and cultures in a celebration of unity and purpose. We can’t wait to witness the diverse perspectives and themes explored in your songs, reflecting the myriad voices driving social change across the globe.

You can listen to all the songs here.

Now, it's time to pass the torch to our esteemed guest artists: the legendary 5-time Grammy winner Angélique Kidjo, Afrobeats star Pheelz, and Ghanaian pop sensation Wiyaala with Swiss hit producer Dodo. They will be listening to each submission, carefully considering the artistry and impact of your music.

Stay tuned as we await their decisions on the top three winning songs, which will earn the opportunity to collaborate with our guest artists in a studio of their choice. Additionally, 17 other outstanding tracks will be awarded cash prizes and earn a spot on our joint album, ensuring that your voices are heard far and wide. We anticipate their decision by the end of May.

But that's not all! We kindly request all participants who have not yet done so to send us video footage of yourself as an artist. This will aid us in crafting personalized video portraits to introduce you to the world and our guest artists. Our film team is excited to capture your essence and talent. Find guidelines here, and draw inspiration from fellow artists' portraits here.

With heartfelt gratitude for your incredible contributions and your dedication. Together, we're shaping a world where music is not just heard but felt, where every note resonates with the promise of change.

With warm regards,
Konstanze & Regula
