Attention HSA Members,
Congratulations to the HSA May 2022 Song of the Month Winners, Jay Harris for his song titled MAMA’S VOICE and to Warren Hanson for his song titled 907. Honorable Mention, for the song with the 3rd highest number of votes goes to J.R. ‘Rose’ Rosenberger for his song titled BABY BELIEVE IT. You can hear the songs for the May monthly winners on the Home Page of our website at www.houstonsongwriters.net. Also, a recap of the May Meeting is shown on the Home Page under Monthly Meeting Information.
A special thanks to the 17 members who participated in commenting on the songs and the 23 members who voted. We were really encouraged by the 10 members who took the time to comment on the songs and/or voted even though they did not post a song in the May contest. We hope that trend will continue because HSA is more than a Song of the Month competition. HSA is dedicated to the art and craft of songwriting where songwriters can learn more about how to write a song; develop their own songs and help others develop through constructive feedback by commenting online or at the Face-to-Face meetings; meet new friends and collaborate with new lyricists and musicians. Every member has something to offer, no matter what stage they are in as a songwriter.
