NOTE: Unfortunately, anyone that is discovered to have pre-promoted or posted their verse, stanza or the song or photos on any media prior to our launch, will have their verse or poem removed from the song. The media is not interested in "pre-published or old news" so we do not want any portion of the song released until the official launch date. Thus, please be patient and honor these guidelines.
