KFC, one of the nation’s leading fast food chains, is collaborating with BET for a new contest entitled KFC’s Hitmaker. To celebrate Black Music Month this June, KFC is inviting aspiring artists and musicians to submit their best songs for what could become KFC’s new theme song for its Pride 360 campaign. The winning artist — who must incorporate the words individual, family, community, heritage and KFC into their song — will receive “a recording opportunity worth $5,000” and an appearance on BET’s Rap City. “During Black Music Month and through Pride 360, KFC celebrates the positive ways African-American music has contributed to and shaped American society,” says James O’Reilly, chief marketing officer for KFC. “Not only is the contest a great opportunity for us to celebrate our belief in the individual, family and community, more importantly, it’s also our chance to give an inspiring artist a shot at making a dream a reality.” Artists can submit their songs at www.kfc.com/pride360.
