MegaFest is around the corner, and Bishop T.D. Jakes knows exactly what needs to be done. The Bishop, an entrepreneur, The New York best-selling author and Senior Pastor of The Potter’s House, is appealing to all musicians from across the country to register and participate in MegaFest 2017 anthem challenge.
Invited to participate are choirs, singers, spoken word artists, and gospel rappers. All that an interested participant needs to do is submit an original musical score. The selected ones will then be given an opportunity to perform at the MegaFest 2017, a mega event set to kick off on June 28 and run through July 1. The occasion will provide a great opportunity for the selected few to perform before an audience of thousands of people drawn from different industries.
The winner of the grand prize will be decided by social media fans. Voting is expected to commence on May 31 when the contest closes its doors for new entries.
To participate, an artist or group of artists should compose a one-minute original “MegaFest Jingle” and then submit it through Mega-Fest.org/Anthem. This must be in the form of a video and should not exceed 200MB. All pure audio submissions will not even be considered for the competition.
The next step would be to visit MegaFest social media platforms and identify your entry and then invite your friends, family, church members and others to vote for you online. Share your creativity by tagging @TDJMegaFest on the three main social media platforms, namely, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
MegaFest 2017 will be hosted in Dallas, Jakes’ hometown. The faith event will cover a number of fronts, including entertainment, entrepreneurship, health and fitness, technology, fashion and more.
Since its inception in 2004, MegaFest has been a great meeting place for people from different industries and backgrounds and has directly reached about one million people. Since taking root in Dallas in 2013, the event, which is hosted bi-annually, has generated over $100 million in economic effect to this day.
