Global live social video app Uplive gives artists from around the world a global platform for discovery and creativity

Duluth, Minnesota, June 1, 2021 – Asia Innovations Group’s live social video platform Uplive today announced the release of global singing competition winner Zandy Storm’s single, “Only Up From Here.” Uplive, the largest independent video-centric live social app globally, is committed to empowering inspiring streamers like Zandy to share their talents across countries, languages, and cultural boundaries.

Zandy Storm, who won Uplive’s inaugural Singing for the World competition last year, released “Only Up From Here” as a testament to her journey as an artist from aspiring singer to global competition winner. Written and produced by Platinum-selling and Grammy-nominated engineer and producer Chris Rosa, the song is a powerful ballad about overcoming challenges in life. Uplive’s Singing for the World was created as a one-of-a-kind singing competition designed to be accessible to all. The competition, which contained similar attributes to hit shows like The Voice, American Idol, and The X Factor, allowed participants to go live to compete in front of large audiences wherever and whenever was convenient. With Uplive’s global user community of over 200 million serving as the audience and voters, Zandy Storm was announced as the first winner by American Idol alumnus and current “The Masked Dancer” judge, Paula Abdul. “It’s an honor to provide musicians like Zandy with a platform to share their talent with the world,” said Christine Xu, the General Manager of Uplive USA. “Uplive’s global streaming community has been an inspiring source of support and creativity during the pandemic, and we’re excited to continue empowering talented artists in the year to come. Singing for the World will be returning in 2021, and all singers are welcome to join. The winner will receive a $10,000 cash prize, a song written for the winner by a Grammy Award-winning producer, and their very own music video. We are thrilled to help more artists like Zandy realize their dreams.” Download Uplive to join the 2021 Singing for the World competition and follow Zandy Storm at zandystorm and Chris Rosa at iamchrisrosa.
