TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Three finalists have been chosen to create an original song that could become New Jersey’s summer anthem.
Their songs were picked from more than 235 entries submitted in a contest created by the “Stronger than the Storm” campaign that’s trying to drive visitors to the Jersey shore after Superstorm Sandy devastated many beach areas.
The three finalists are “Jersey Strong,” by the Oakhurst-based band After the Reign; “Come On Down,” by Jojo Sueta and Bob Smith of Shark River Hills, and “The Jersey Shore” by Andrew Warren of Ocean City.
The winner will perform at a Sept. 7 shore concert, opening for a yet to be announced major music act.
Voting is now under way to determine the winner, who will be announced Monday. People can cast their votes online once a day.
