SoulTunes Contest seeks tunes


Upper Room Ministries’ magazine for youth and young adults, Devozine, has announced a SoulTunes Contest, a competition for youth bands and songwriters.  

The deadline for entries is March 31. 

“Devozine knows that music is a huge part of youth culture today. And music is often the medium that young people use to express and to celebrate their faith,” says Editor Sandy Miller. 

The winners will perform the winning song live at Youth 2007 in Greensboro, N.C. Youth 2007 is a youth event sponsored by the General Board of Discipleship, an agency of The United Methodist Church. More than 10,000 youth and youth workers are expected to attend the gathering July 11-15 at the Greensboro Convention Center. 

Youth bands and performers ages 13 to 19 may enter the contest online (mp3 format only) at or may send their song on a CD, along with entry info to Devozine SoulTunes Contest, 1908 Grand Ave., P.O. Box 340004, Nashville, TN 37212. Entries in either format must be received by midnight CST March 31.
