LOUISVILLE, Ky. —An original song by Louisville singer-songwriter Andrea Davidson has been selected as a finalist in an international song contest.
Davidson’s composition “Natchez Trace” will be featured in this year’s Tipperary Peace Convention Song Contest in Tipperary, Ireland. As one of ten finalists, Davidson will travel to Ireland for a Sunday June 5 performance at the Excel Theatre during the convention.
"We are moving from the old paradigms of fear, war, greed and suffering into a state of peace, joy, abundance and compassion,” Davidson said. “This song is about believing in the power of love and daring to indulge in the healing that comes through forgiveness.”
If selected as the winner, Davidson is eligible for a €1,500 prize and convention organizers will promote her song in international media. In addition to holding a song contest, the convention annually awards the Tipperary Peace Award to leaders who have used their positions to promote peace. Previous winners of the award include Bill Clinton, Nelson Mandela and Mikhail Gorbachev.
Davidson, 25, released her most recent album of original compositions, “Retracing Steps”, in 2010. She has performed professionally throughout the Louisville area and has concluded a musical residency in Santa Monica, Calif.
