How to get your song considered for inclusion on this page
We are creating an "Honorable Mention" list for additional songs that meet the same criteria we used for the contest, that is, songs must be linked both to COVID and to one of SYNC's seven themes. How to do this
Music won't vaccinate us against the virus but it can vaccinate us against a lot of unhealthy responses to the pandemic--boredom, anxiety, escapist behavior, resentment, frustration, depression, despair. Music can also be a way to bless others, especially first responders, with a positive message of thanks, encouragement, and prayer.
