Last Year's Winner says:
"We just had to write you and let you know what a blessing the Singing
News/Solid Gospel Songwriters Search has been to us. In 2011, our song "Hope
Was Carved in a Rolling Stone" was a Runner Up. Part of the prize package
was attending NQC. We met Gordon Mote there and he took an interest in our
music and encouraged us to keep writing. So we did.
Our song "Hidden Heroes" won the Grand prize in the 2012 Singing News/Solid
Gospel Songwriters Search and two others were Runners Up. Chris White and
Greg Bentley contacted us last week to inform us that The Talleys are
recording our song "Hidden Heroes." Greg even send a video clip of Lauren in
the studio singing the second verse. If you felt an earthquake, it was just
Sharon and I doing the "Happy Dance!!!"
How can we thank you and all the others for the contest? It has changed our
Sharon and I would like to encourage every Gospel songwriter to enter this
year's contest. We heard Guy Penrod once say that God knows our phone
number. We are living proof of that. We will be FOREVER grateful for the
Singing News/Solid Gospel Songwriters Search.
Dixie & Sharon Phillips"
