Grammy®-nominated country music singer-songwriter Chris Young has partnered with Folgers® Coffee to invite musicians to put their own spin on the iconic Folgers jingle and enter their version into the Folgers Jingle Contest.
From Jan. 30 through Feb. 20, individuals can submit a video at Folgers.com of their musical performance of the jingle for an opportunity to win a mentoring session with Young. One grand-prize winner will receive $25,000.
“The Folgers Jingle is an iconic tune that has lived in my memory since childhood,” said Young. “I’m excited to be a part of this year’s Folgers Jingle Contest, which gives up-and-coming musicians an opportunity to showcase their musical talent and look forward to mentoring the finalists on their Folgers Jingle submissions.”
Musicians are invited to create their own version of the Folgers® Jingle in video format. The video must include the complete melody and lyrics of “The Best Part of Wakin’ Up is Folgers in Your Cup®.” Once complete, the video must be posted to Jingle.FolgersCoffee.com. A judging panel will select five semi-finalists for an online vote and a special mentoring session with Young. From March 20 through April 16, fans around the world will have the opportunity to vote daily for their favorite finalist’s jingle. In May, one Jingle finalist will be selected as the grand-prize winner of $25,000.
