"OMG, this is totally unreal!!! I have personally been entering the competition for years now, and have won honorable mention and even won the second overall prize one year, but to win the overall grand prize is just amazing. This song was written as a protest song for anyone that has had their rights stripped away.  We want it to be a universal anthem for those that feel like they have to continue to push for positive changes, for human rights, and for equality. We are both going to continue to make art that reflects the times Thank you so much for this incredible honor, we’re speechless and so very grateful!" ...Ships Have Sailed (Will Carpenter) ft. Abby Posner, Top Winner of 28th Annual USA Songwriting Competition.
