May 31, 2010 - PRLog -- Zimbabwean born Sahara C has today received news that her song “Just Dance” was a finalist in this year's UK Songwriting contest.  The song was written by Sahara after a night out at a massive student event held at London's Fabric nightclub, which she attended with one of her friends.  The same song was used in 2008 as part of Puma's European online promotion of their new fragrance.  A second song “Last Goodbye” received a Commended Entry.

Sahara is a singer/songwriter that was born in Zimbabwe, and has lived in the UK for more than 12 years.  Having started out songwriting with at the age of 13, her songs are based on natural talent and she has undertaken no training or courses to reach this stage.  Sahara C was born in Harare, and lived in Arcadia, Chadcombe and Hillside before leaving to settle in the UK.   Having entered the UK Songwriting contest every year since 2006, Sahara has found her songs consistently well placed each year - progressively getting better results.  There were over 5,000 entries this year, and beating thousands of others, Sahara's song “Just Dance” received a score of “8” - songs with a score of 8 or 9 are finalists and are all considered for the winning and runner up positions. Only a tiny percentage of entries will reach this level, so Sahara is ecstatic at her best ever result in this contest.

The UK Songwriting Contest is one of the oldest and most well established song contests in the world and since its launch back in 2002.  The following have all been involved in this important annual songwriting event: The BRIT Trust (of BRIT Awards fame), The Guild of International Songwriters and Composers, top producers, writers and broadcasters, Music Aid International, the BBC, Roland Music, The World Music Foundation, American Songwriter Magazine, BASCA (The British Academy of Songwriters, Composers and Authors), the SCO (Song Copyright Organization), The BRIT School, the BRIT Studios and many others, and many well known names in the music business closely follow the contest each year looking for new talent to work with. In the words of Channel 4 Television - "The UK Songwriting Contest does what it says on the tin! This is a real chance for new songwriters to break into the music business." (Channel Four Television - Ideas Factory).
