Do you have songs to share? Great! Read our guidelines below!

To All Music Artists:                                      CONTACT US: admin@wordforlife.com

      FIRST OF ALL:  WE ARE NOT A RADIO STATION, which we're often mistaken for. Song submissions sent to us are placed on a free-access download page for free play or downloading. A site visitor can immediately listen to, or download and save, any song without charge. We will provide a link back to the artist's homepage when the information is provided, but aside from that, we do not accept any advertising at all. Contributors are not charged for their songs being here and do not receive payment for them being downloaded. Word for Life World Ministries enforces its ZERO-SPAM Policy. Still interested? Read on!

           Thank you for coming to this page and reading about adding your music to our site. We would be happy to add your music if it meets our very few required criteria for inclusion:

     1 - It must glorify God. We especially like uplifting vocals, mixed tracks, acapella, and guitar music, but that's far from the entire list.   Please include lyrics when possible; especially with raps. 

     2 - You don't have to ask permission before sending your submission, all are welcome. Please submit your music in .MP3 format if possible but that is not strictly required. If you don't know how to do MP3's, use whatever you DO know and I'll convert it. To help me keep track of them, please send them to music@wordforlife.com . If you want to send several files at once, try one of the many free big-file sending services such as sendspace.com, DropBox, GoogleDrive, or whatever you have. For massive uploads, FTP can be made available on request.

     3 - You do not have to be a large group. Or even a "group." Whether its just one person or a group of friends gathered together in their garage singing/playing their OWN works is just fine. Some of our current artists are "singles" that do not belong to an organized group. So sit down to the piano, or grab a guitar, use your voice alone or with it, and hit your RECORD button. 

     4 - For legal reasons, we can only accept music submissions from the person who holds the copyright or their authorized representative (such as their agent) on the submission, not from the public. You may submit links to things online if you like, and we may post them at a later time on our upcoming "Favorite Submitted Links" page.  We reserve the right to ask for a signed release affirming that we have legal permission to place the music here if needed. This is also intended to make sure that all artists are aware of their musical "presence" here and approve of it. Under U.S. Copyright Law, the person who creates a song is considered the copyright holder unless they are hired to do it, in which case the copyright defaults to their employer. For information on U.S. Copyright law, we suggest you view this PDF document about copyright basics. It will open in a new window:  U.S. Copyright Office Copyright Tutorial it is an extensive but easy to read tutorial on the subject. Songs appear to violate © copyright are removed.

     5 - I try to post submissions on a regular basis, but I am a school teacher, husband, father, grandfather, and all that as well, so sometimes "life" gets in the way of my best intentions. However, if you've submitted your work more than a month ago and still don't see it here, feel free to ask about it, as something may have happened to it. I have a pretty open mind about most types of music, but reserve the right to make the final decision as to what is published here or not, and if I can't understand the lyrics, its not likely to be included. I encourage you to send a copy of the song's lyrics if available, but that is -not- a requirement.

          In Return for Your Music Submissions:

     1 - We generally feature artists in the order received at the top of our music list until the next one comes along. Then you just move down a line or two as needed for space.  If a long period of time between submissions elapses, we'll take the lower ones and move them up and so on. Once in a while, we may totally re-arrange the list for better readability. Your position in the list has nothing at all with how much I like it.

     2 - If you have a website, we will encourage OUR visitors to come to your site with a prominent hyperlink on every song's description line. If you don't have a website and would like an email link, just let us know. If you need a website page or two for we may be able to provide a free one for you on our site - just ask and I'll help you get started as time allows. 

     3 - If you can think of any questions we have not addressed here, please write and we'll normally respond within 48-96 hours. Our email address is : admin@wordforlife.com

     4 - Please remember, the Christian artists that each gave us permission to place their music on this website did so on an "honor system." They're trusting you to download the music, share it, give it to others, but not to charge for doing so. It's OK if someone pays you back for the actual costs of mailing or burning a disk of these songs to them, but don't do it just for profit.

     5 - Finally, you will receive one (1) "Warm And Fuzzy Feeling" for every work you share; especially when you realize it might be YOUR SONG might just what it took to turn a hardened soul towards Jesus. Good luck! :-)
