JB Dondolo Presents Music for Water

Dallas, TX: In partnership with Grand Mountain Records, Disinfect & Shield, and the Navajo Nation, JB Dondolo is proud to announce the first annual “Music For Water” Campaign, a global competition for emerging musicians to have their water-themed song signed to a distribution deal and showcased by JB Dondolo as the organization’s theme song for 2020-2021.

The intent of Music for Water is to create a song that ignites awareness of the global importance of clean drinking water as well as accessible sanitation and hygiene, while raising funds for sanitization stations across the Navajo Nation.

Musicians will produce high-quality recordings of songs and compete for the top five spots. One song will be chosen by a music professional to be the song of the year. Applicants are invited to submit a radio-ready song, based on the theme of “water”, where a panel of industry professionals and public voting round will determine the top five songs. The top song will be chosen by the JB Dondolo Board and highlighted as the theme song for the following year on all platforms. All five of the top songs will be awarded a single distribution deal with our partner, Grand Mountain International Records.

Throughout the competition, supporters and applicants are encouraged to donate to the campaign, with an initial goal of $10,000USD to purchase and distribute sanitization products to the Navajo Nation.

The contest opens August 15 and will run until September 30, when submissions close at midnight. The voting period happens between October 1 and closes October 14, and the top 20 songs will be announced October 15. Judge deliberation follows, with an announcement of the song of the year, chosen by JB Dondolo board members, scheduled for November 14.
