Impressive Feat by Danish Songwriter

Impressive Feat by Danish Songwriter
The Danish songwriter Helle Hansen sets an outstanding record in a prestigious international songwriting contest. For several years Helle Hansen has been among the usual suspects in the USA Songwriting Competition. Among this year’s staggering total of 33,500 entries, five of her songs have made it to the finals – making her the songwriter with most songs in the finals in the world. After her first participation in the contest in 2001 when she reached the final with the song “Casual”, Helle Hansen has managed an amazing run with “Honorable Mention Awards” five years in a row (2002-2006) in the categories “Latin”, “Lyrics”, and “Jazz”. In the latter category, she has no less than four songs in the final this year. (3rd December)
