Sounds of Civic Voting Begins
The Sounds of Civic has now moved to the voting phase, where there will be decided which artists move on to the Top 8. Voting ends on July 17. These finalists will each win $2,500 in music gear from Sam Ash Music Stores. Of those 8, one talented winner will drive away in a brand new 2012 Honda Civic and perform live on a 2011 Honda Civic Tour date in Los Angeles.
To kick off the contest and inspire artists, Honda reached out to several popular YouTube musicians to create their own songs about the 2012 Civic. Participating artists include Maria Zouroudis, Julia Dales, Greg Holden and Madi Diaz, as well as Los Angeles hip hop artist, Free Will.
"We've seen a high crossover of Civic fans and music lovers. And with the launch of the 2012 Honda Civic we saw a perfect opportunity to give our amazing fans a little bit of both," said Steve Center, vice president of national marketing operations for American Honda Motor Co., Inc. "We know our talented fans will show off their skills and submit some great Civic-inspired tunes onto our Facebook page."
The latest generation Honda Civic went on sale at Honda dealerships nationwide on April 20 with a suggested retail price (MSRP) starting at $15,605.
