rcdop.org: Teen songwriter named finalist for inspirational song

March 18, 2021


FLORHAM PARK - It has been an exciting journey from writing a song to becoming the online vote winner and now a finalist in a statewide contest for 16-year-old Erin Peters, a parishioner at Holy Family here.

Her song “They Say to Run” has advanced to the finals of the N.J.-based organization, “Shout Down Drugs,” which partners with Drug Free New Jersey. The mission of the event, “Your Song! Your Voice!” is to challenge teens to create peer-to-peer original music, songs, and lyrics in their own original style, whether it be hip-hop, rock, folk, or any other genre.

Readers are invited to listen to Peters’ song and vote for it until May 1. As a finalist, she will participate in the annual prevention contest, which will be virtual on May 7. First-, second-, and third-place winners will be chosen to receive contracts to perform their award-winning songs at events throughout the year.
