Hack-a-Song is a 10 hour musical competition in which teams of 3-5 musicians write, arrange, record, and perform original music! On this day, dozens of teams will compose, write, edit, record, and finally perform original songs spanning a variety of genres. Out of the two awards of the event, "best lyrics" was given to Swu and his teammates for what the judges referred to as "meaningful" and "tasteful" lyrics.
A huge thanks to Independent Mucisians Organization (IMO) for organizing and conducting the event. Shout out to Ari, Christine, and Maegha for being co-songwriters. Shout out to Kid Afabs and the crew for showing support.
