Earlier this week, we attended a special event in New York City hosted by AXE. Details were sparse, but AXE always puts on amazing events, so we knew we were in for a good time. But never did I expect John Legend to walk out and perform a couple of songs for us!
Now you might be wondering what the connection is between AXE and John Legend. Well, it turns out that the Grammy Award winner has teamed up with AXE White Label to give aspiring artists the opportunity of a lifetime. With their #TaketheLeap campaign, up and coming singers, songwriters, and musicians are invited to submit their videos for a chance to work with Legend, who will offer mentoring and career development advice. Winners will also have the opportunity to perform at SXSW.
Legend, who won the Golden Globe for Best Original Song for “Glory,” his collaboration with Common from the movie Selma, tweeted about the contest to his 6 million Twitter followers earlier this week. No doubt, there will likely be hundreds of thousands of submissions, but it will definitely be worth it for the artist who makes the final cut.
Think about it.. Your original song could earn you a mentorship with John Legend. So what are you waiting for? Go to http://AXEWhiteLabel.com and #TakeTheLeap.
