The Unsigned Only Music Competition is pleased to announce its 2019 winners. Unsigned Only is open to all artists who are unsigned to a major record label and gives artists exposure, recognition, and validation for their artistry.
A total of $150,000 in cash and prizes is awarded to 38 winners, including an overall Grand Prize winner and a First and Second Place winner in each category. An additional group of Honorable Mentions were also selected. Over the years Unsigned Only has become an important source for discovering new talent. Since its inception in 2012, five Grand Prize winners have been signed to record labels.
In the Christian category, Avery Blank took first place with her song "Not Over," followed by Francesca Ani's "Heart On Fire" in second place.
For the first time in Unsigned Only's history, the 2019 Grand Prize is awarded to a South African artist, Anna Wolf, for the song "Believer." Wolf beat out almost 6,000 entries from more than 100 countries to be named the Grand Prize winner. Wolf is truly a compelling and rare artist -- a hypnotic performer with passion and style, a singer with hauntingly beautiful vocals, and a songwriter with depth and vulnerability. The winning song, "Believer," is a powerful track, inspired by Wolf's desire to break the silence about domestic violence and serves as a personal refusal to become the victim of her circumstance.
