Belmont songwriting student, Claire Ernst, recently won the opportunity to help recording artist H.E.R. finish co-writing a song for a “Life is Good” campaign. Out of thousands of submissions, Ernst was one of the three winners chosen to be flown out to Los Angeles to collaborate with H.E.R. 

The home electronics company, LG Electronics held a collaboration campaign with singer-songwriter H.E.R. in an effort to help finish a song of which the artist wrote only 16 bars. The three finalists chosen, two songwriters and one instrumentalist collaborated with the artist to record in a studio and shoot the final video performance. 

The hashtag is #lifeisgoodmusic_lg on Instagram and the audition highlights/winner reaction can be found on LG’s Instagram and Youtube. The music video campaign is being shown on a billboard in Times Square and in London Piccadilly Square, and an interview with Billboard will be posted soon featuring the winners of the contest. 

Ernst shared, “This experience has been incredible, to be able to talk to and work with one of my idols while also doing what I love was surreal. I still can’t believe it happened!”

Be sure to watch for the official music video to be posted on LG’s global Youtube and Instagram pages in the next week.
