Moody Radio Lyric Writing Contest Premiers Song
Moody Radio’s “Dawn And Steve In The Morning” world premiered Erskin Anavitarte’s latest single “Everything” recently during their nationally syndicated radio program.
The song was specially commissioned by the Moody Radio Network in conjunction with their annual Spring SHARE station fundraising event. The song was the result of a national contest, where listeners submitted their best lyrics or prose based on the Spring SHARE theme of “The Gospel Changes Everything”.
“We thought it would be great to get listeners involved in advance by promoting a lyric writing contest”, according to Scott Thunder, local manager at Moody Radio in Nashville. “Erskin is such a gifted singer/songwriter, and such a great friend of the station, we knew we needed to ask him to write the music.”
Submissions came in from across the United States during the open entry period. After a careful selection process, John Devine of Chicago, Illinois was chosen as the grand prize winner.
Immediately, Erskin began composing the music to go along with the lyrics. “It took a lot of prayer to be able to write a song in this fashion. It’s usually music first, and then lyrics. But God guided the whole process.”
A demo version of the song was aired during the Spring SHARE event, but the fully produced song was debuted on the network right after Easter.
