Enter Carolyn Malachi's Beautiful Dreamer Cover Contest

GRAMMY Nominated Recording Artist Carolyn Malachi invites singers, rappers, poets, and music producers to compete in the Beautiful Dreamer Cover Contest for a chance to win $500 toward their beautiful dream and a feature on her next album.
FOX News , CENTRIC TV, and Clutch Magazine praise the inspirational "Beautiful Dreamer" song, Malachi's follow up to the GRAMMY nominated "Orion". The music video features the point of view of Niya Bell, a nine-year-old genius who escapes to a mystical wood after being bullied by her peers; and grown-up dreamers who work, live, and thrive in the real world.

"A little faith and lots of encouragement can go a very long way," says Malachi about "Beautiful Dreamer". "I receive messages, almost daily, from people who say that the song and the video give them hope. It is my hope that the Beautiful Dreamer Cover Contest extends this thread of inspiration." In addition to awarding the winner with $500, Malachi will also feature the winner on her next album and invite them to experience a private recording session.

Singers, rappers, and poets may write and record original lyrics using the instrumental portion of the "Beautiful Dreamer - Extended Jazz Mix". Music producers and engineers may also compete by sampling the song to create a remix. Malachi and her team will receive submissions (MP3, YouTube video link, or SoundCloud link) at BDCC@CarolynMalachi.com.
