WYD 2013 in Rio de Janeiro launches contest to choose the official anthem
November 6, 2011. (Romereports.com) The World Youth Day 2013 Rio has launched a competition to choose its own anthem. The chosen song will be played during the main events for the meeting of young people with the pope.
January 31, 2012 is the deadline for entries. The winner will then be announced on March 1. The song should be based on the theme of World Youth Day 2013: “Go and Make Disciples of All Nations”.
The winning song will be very important because the World Youth Day hymns have always played a key role in the identity of each meeting. They also help to create a sense of unity and overcome any cultural barriers.
