Corporation Inc. (www.theveteranschannel.com), the first and only global media platform
for veterans and first responders, has partnered with Radar Love Records to launch a
music challenge for veterans globally who express themselves through song.
The VMC team has encountered veterans from all over the world with many gifts and

any branch of service (including first responders), from anywhere in the world, is
encouraged to submit their own original music composition.

But it’s not just about sharing music.
All submissions will also be considered for two awards:
● Best Original Song ( the writer or any chosen vocalist may sing )
● Best Original Song with Vocal ( the writer must also sing )
The winners will be announced on Sept. 1, 2020.
With both awards, the winning songwriter will be invited to have their song fully arranged
and produced in Toronto at Radar Love Record’s Altravox Studios by 5-time Juno Award
winner and Grammy-nominated Producer Michael Hanson. He is founder and original
member of Canada’s multi-Platinum band Glass Tiger.
