For the fourth year in a row, Hyundai has teamed up with The Recording Agency to launch the Grammy Amplifier initiative. The Grammy Amplifier is a program designed to give aspiring artists a platform and an opportunity to advance their musical careers.

To participate, anyone can go to grammyamplifier.com right now to upload a song submission. But time is running out because on Dec. 16, a top 25 list of semi-finalists will be selected based on number of track plays and social media “amplifications.” Eventually, that semi-finalist group will be narrowed down to 10 finalists and finally three winners.

One winner will receive an in-studio recording session with a Grammy-winning producer, one will get to create a music video, and the other gets an opening slot for a festival or an artist tour. If that wasn’t cool enough, hip-hop artist Big Sean, Halestorm lead singer and guitarist Lzzy Hale, and country superstar Sam Hunt will help pick this year’s three big winners.

At Kearny Mesa Hyundai, we’re proud to be a part of this program that encourages aspiring artists to go after their goals. We’re also pleased that Hyundai continues to be the official vehicle partner of the Grammy Awards, which will broadcast its annual awards ceremony from Los Angeles on Feb. 15.

We’re excited to see who will win some of the most coveted awards in music! And speaking of winners, at Kearny Mesa Hyundai in San Diego, we’re still enjoying the news that the 2016 Hyundai Tucson and the 2016 Hyundai Sonata each earned a 2015 Top Safety Pick+ rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. It’s not quite a Grammy, but to us, it’s just as important.
