So you think you can sing? Motown studio will pay $25,000 to the winner of its cover contest

Winners will also get representation by Sony Music Publishing for the winning cover tracks, and potential licensing opportunities.

The event is co-sponsored by Sony Music Publishing, which administers the song catalog of Motown Records. Sept. 5 is the deadline for submissions, and there is no entry fee.

Participating artists can select from 10 Motown songs — “Ain’t That Asking for Trouble,” by Stevie Wonder, “Heaven Sent You I Know,” by Marvin Gaye and Kim Weston; “I Was Made to Love Her,” by Wonder; “I’m Still Loving You,” by Kim Weston; “It’s Got to Be a Miracle,” by The Supremes and The Four Tops; “My Baby Loves Me,” by Martha & the Vandellas; “Nothing’s Too Good for My Baby,” by Wonder; “Which Way Is the Sky,” by The Four Tops; “Whole Lot of Shakin’ in My Heart,” by Smokey Robinson & the Miracles, and “You’ve Made Me So Very Happy,” by Brenda Holloway — songs classified as album tracks and single B-sides.

Masterpiece Sound Studios was created by Sylvia Moy, a former songwriter for Motown Records, who died in 2017. She was the pen behind numerous 1970s Stevie Wonder hits, including “My Cherie Amour,” and “Uptight (Everything’s Alright).”
