So many local musicians are missing the stage and performing, especially this holiday season. Somerset Collection is thrilled to support Detroit musicians by holding the Tune Into Somerset Collection contest. Launched the day before Thanksgiving and open through Dec 3, musicians submitted videos of themselves playing their instruments to ClickOnDetroit.
The Somerset Collection has chosen its winners who will receive $2,500 each and perform during the holidays for mallgoers!
In the holiday spirit, Somerset Collection also donated $2,500 in each of the winners’ names to Detroit Rescue Mission Ministries, an organization that helps feed and house the homeless. Additionally, Somerset loved all the entries so much that they’re even giving $50 gift cards to all those who submitted eligible entries! You can still see the entries here.
