THE RECORDING ACADEMY® LAUNCHES “#THEWORLDISLISTENING”

AD CAMPAIGN FEATURING NOMINEES THE BLACK KEYS, RIHANNA AND TAYLOR SWIFT TO PROMOTE 55TH ANNUAL GRAMMY AWARDS®

THE RECORDING ACADEMY® PROVIDES EMERGING ARTISTS A NEW SOCIAL DISCOVERY PLATFORM WITH www.grammyamplifier.com

THE RECORDING ACADEMY® and TBWA\CHIAT\DAY have teamed up for the sixth year to promote the 55TH ANNUAL GRAMMY AWARDS® with the ad campaign “#TheWorldIsListening.”

At the heart of this year’s “#TheWorldIsListening” campaign is a newly created Web site, www.grammyamplifier.com, which allows musicians to share their tracks via SoundCloud for a chance to have their music tweeted out by a panel of musical icons, including LINKIN PARK, RZA, and SNOOP LION. While social media has given musicians more ways to share their sounds than ever before, the online music space is increasingly fragmented. As a result, it gets more difficult for emerging artists to be discovered. “#TheWorldIsListening” campaign and the GRAMMY AMPLIFIER aims to help solve this problem by exposing new artists through social platforms — with the ultimate goal of discovering artists with the potential to be the next generation of GRAMMY winners.
