Songwriting Major Wins Christian Music Festival

Emily Summers, sophomore songwriting major, was selected as the winner at ALIVE 11’s Christian music festival. The festival hosts a new talent search program where musicians are invited to submit a bio, photo and recording of an original song. Ultimately, after many performances and public voting contests, Summers was selected as grand prize winner to represent the ALIVE 11 Festival at the national talent search competition.

Summers now is competing, along with grand prize winners from surrounding festivals, in an online voting competition. The ultimate winner will tour with Christian bands to the 23 participating festivals around the country next summer.
