After months of planning and publicising, and sorting through the 65 new compositions submitted, the results of the MCS 130 Song-Writing Competition are finally out! It took nine judges almost two months and two rounds of assessment to decide on the following top three winners:
- 1st prize – Dr Andrew Pan (Wesley Methodist Church)
- 2nd Prize – Ms Linda Yee Swee Seng (Foochow Methodist Church)
- 3rd Prize – Mr Luke Yan and Ms Abigail Lee (Barker Road Methodist Church)
The winners received their prizes at a presentation ceremony, held 10 Oct 2015 at the Methodist Centre, where they also presented their winning songs. The other participants were also invited to the ceremony, where they received certificates of participation for their great effort.
The top winning song ‘Seek, Love, Serve the Lord!’ will be showcased at the MCS 130 Celebration of Praise and Thanksgiving Service on 28 Nov 2015 at Paya Lebar Methodist Church.
The Methodist School of Music, which organised the competition, celebrates God’s goodness in raising so many songwriters in our Methodist community, and is considering ways to share the submitted songs for the community’s use. Stay tuned!
