RaeLynn Celebrates Music Education With New Song, Contest for Schools
Country singer RaeLynn is doing her part to help support music education in schools. The 20-year-old is joining forces with the National Association for Music Education (NAfME) and the Give a Note Foundation to help celebrate Music in Our Schools Month, which occurs yearly in March and celebrates its 30th anniversary in 2015.
RaeLynn co-wrote a song, 'Always Sing,' with songwriters Nicolle Galyon and Jimmy Robbins, for music students all across the country. As part of the initiative, students are invited to submit a video of their school ensemble performing 'Always Sing' to be entered to win surprises, which are still to be announced.
The contest is part of the Music in Our Schools Tour, which will kick off on March 1 and is sponsored by the Give a Note Foundation and Big Machine Label Group. As part of the tour, the former 'The Voice' contestant will perform at up to five schools, which will also receive a $1,000 grant. More information, including school submission details, can be found here.
RaeLynn's current single, 'God Made Girls,' is in the Top 20 and climbing. The song is the highest-charting debut single by a solo female artist in 2014, and its accompanying video has already garnered more than 4 million views.
