The WorldScout Music Expo platform is committed to providing opportunities for emerging indie artists to elevate their industry knowledge and connect with major record labels, producers, agents, managers and playlist curators through both live and digital events. This contest is designed for artists including rappers, singers, producers, and beat-makers ages 13+ with music leaning towards Hip-Hop, R&B, and Trap music. Partial proceeds from #KeepMakingMusic will be donated to the Sweet Relief COVID-19 fund created to provide emergency financial support for artists and gig-workers whose income was greatly affected by the cancellation of live music events due to the coronavirus crisis.
