Wildflower! Performing Songwriter Contest
“Many people can write a song, however, it is a truly brave person who will expose themselves by putting their song down on paper, then stand in front of the world and sing it for all to hear!”
– Al Johnson
Al Johnson was a longtime supporter of the song writing community and passed away in 2017. The contest continues in his memory.
