There are two thing I must have to get the day started – music, and coffee.
As soon as my alarm goes off, my music goes on. Sometimes it’s FM radio, more often than not it’s Spotify where I love learning about new artists and making playlists of my faves. My daily outfits are often influenced by the music I listen to – be it poppy, romantic, slow, fast, emotional or inspirational. I start my outfit posts for the blog at home before I head to the office, drinking a steaming cup of coffee (cream, half a Splenda please) and listening to my tunes. I often take the rest (or more) of my coffee with me on my commute, listening to my iTunes through my car speakers.
When I think of both coffee and music I think of my morning routine, but I also can’t help but think of Folgers, who has one of the most iconic jingles in history. I think we all know that the best part of waking up is Folgers in your cup!
Composed by Leslie Pearl, that original and iconic Folgers Jingle debuted in 1984; since then the Jingle has since been transformed into country, gospel, jazz, R & B, folk, Celtic, and a cappella versions. They even have versions from Rascal Flatts and Aaron Neville on the Folgers Jingle site. Folgers has a fabulous competition going on where emerging artists can enter with their version of the famous Jingle. Entries were judged on factors such as creativity/originality, musical performance, and adherence to the creative assignment.
The Folgers Jingle Contest has narrowed down to just ten finalists, and the talent is remarkable. I encourage you to check out these amazing artists and vote for the best. What a fantastic opportunity for one who is talented and passionate, your vote could change a musician’s future. Not only can your vote change the artist’s life, but also yours.
