“Mississauga’s 50th anniversary is a milestone that should be celebrated and what better way than recording a new city anthem,” mentions Gil Moore, Founder and CEO of Metalworks Studios, “Metalworks and SoundsUnite are excited and proud to record the winner and share the joy of music with our community.”

“A winning local singer-songwriter can make themselves a part of our history. Write the anthem heard across the city in 2024, and be part of every celebration of our City’s 50th Anniversary. The legendary Tommy Hunter wrote the first one, now who will write the next one?” asks Mike Douglas, Executive Director of MAC
