My sincere THANKS to those who entered the contest.
It was launched in August to encourage writers to pen a song of UNITY.
The rules were adjusted to allow ANY artist, not just duos or groups, to submit an entry.
I'm happy to announce the winner of the very first MIKE PORCO SONG INITIATIVE is:
Mr. JOE VIRGA
Joe wins studio time to record his song and to make a VINYL pressing.
Stay tuned for more details on the release.
For now, here are Joe's lyrics.
WELL DONE, JOE!

LET'S LIGHT A CANDLEJoe Virgacapo 2 = AIntro: G Am D7 GGLet's light a candle for the old and insecure.DLet's light a candle for the homeless and the poor.B7 C Em ALet's light a candle for what we're living for.G D GLet's light a candle for love.Let's light a candle for the children who were slain.Let's light a candle for their parents who remain.Let's light a candle for a world that's gone insane.Let's light a candle for love.G7 CThe simple act of lighting a candle.Em D CShines a beacon in the dark.Em B C C/GThere's not a sorrow we can't handle.G DWith faith burning in our hearts.Let's light a candle for those who died in war.Let's light a candle and lay down the sword.Let's light a candle, peace is our reward.C B CAnd if there's a God above.G DThen He would light a candle.Bm CI'm sure He would light a candle.G D C GHe would light a candle... with love.Outro: G Am D7 G
