Scholarship Program



How is this possible? 

Light + Song is proud to announce that it has received the Celebrate Charlotte Arts grant from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation. As part of the grant we will be filming 16 live sessions with different musicians in the local area.  We will also be hosting a local concert with selected musicians from this season. We are consolidating our shooting days to four dates. This allows us to be extremely efficient with time which keeps costs down to a minimum. It also opens up opportunities to find curated locations for the performances. 


What is the process?

Artists can submit an application in the link provided. If selected, artists will be asked to choose one of the four dates provided. We are unable to offer any rescheduling or accommodate any additional dates. 


When will the videos be released?

This will be a part of Light + Song Season 3 which will be premiering in 2020. We reserve the right to schedule video release dates based on our discretion. Videos will not necessarily be released in the order in which they were filmed.


What makes Light + Song special?

Music videos, while awesome, can cost thousands of dollars. We love the Light + Song format because it creates a high quality visual experience for your audience but also allows others to see how talented you really are in a “stripped down” version of your music. These videos will be great content for your EPK as well as for your fan base. Quality content is key in this social media landscape and we can ensure you that is what you will receive. 


There is limited space, so please take your time with the application and really show us what you’ve got. Applications will be accepted through November 30, 2019. Let us know if you have any questions at We are so excited to be able to launch this opportunity for you all and cannot wait to start shooting Season 3!
