As part of a three-year partnership as the "Official Vehicle Partner" of the GRAMMY Awards, Hyundai has teamed with The Recording Academy to create "Center Stage Powered by GRAMMY Amplifier," an innovative online platform designed to provide professional mentoring and exposure for artists discovered through the GRAMMYs' innovative GRAMMY Amplifier program.

Mike Shinoda, member of two-time GRAMMY-winning band Linkin Park, will serve as GRAMMY Ambassador and curator for "Center Stage," which was developed based on the success of GRAMMY Amplifier. Launched by The Recording Academy in January, GRAMMY Amplifier, allows musicians to share their tracks via SoundCloud for a chance to have their music shared online by a panel of music icons.

"Center Stage" will select three artists with the most "amplification" (shares/likes) and individually award them with a recording session with a leading GRAMMY producer, production of a music video with a noted producer and/or director, or an opening act performance slot on a major tour or music festival. The winning artists will be announced at The The Recording Academy's annual South by Southwest event in March. Visit the The Recording Academy's Facebook page for a chance to enter the program and for a complete set of rules.

"Hyundai's partnership with The Recording Academy ties together music's biggest brand with Hyundai's passion for creativity and innovation," said Steve Shannon, Vice President of Marketing, Hyundai Motor America. "In continuing our successful relationship, 'Center Stage' and the GRAMMY Amplifier allows Hyundai to connect with an audience that loves music and share great music with fans everywhere."

"Our forward-looking partnership with Hyundai is one that allows us both to push the envelope creatively," said Evan Greene, Chief Marketing Officer for The Recording Academy. "'Center Stage' helps us to collaboratively amplify the music creation process and highlight excellence."
