Teenage musicians wanted for national CD

Thursday, March 18, 2010

INDIANAPOLIS -- Teenage musicians across the state are wanted to help record a National Drunk Driving Awareness CD.

The Stop Drunk Driving Now Kid's Saving Kid's CD Campaign is in full swing and marks the first time talented young musicians from across the country will work together to use their music and raise awareness about the dangers of driving under the influence.

A total of 30 artists will appear on the CD and the music will be available for free downloading. When people visit the page to hear the music, they will see a host of messages, designed by high school and college students, about the costs of drunk driving and prevention messages.

"This is another weapon in our drunk driving prevention arsenal, the earlier we start kids thinking about not getting behind the wheel drunk, the better," Illumina Records President Ronald Bellanti said.

"What better way to use my music than to save other kids' lives? Drunk driving affects everyone regardless of his or her age," 13-year-old Stop Drunk Driving Now Kid's Saving Kid's Spokesperson Becky Levy said.

All the artists that will appear on the CD will be under the age of 18.

To submit music for consideration, send a MP3 or WAV file of a song to ksksubmit@stopddnow.com. Also include age, hometown and parents contact information.

Those interested in submitting a song must be 18-year-old or younger and have at least one recorded original song to submit.
