Find out full details about the Song For Stephen campaign.

On the 20th anniversary of Stephen Lawrence's death, The Voice newspaper has launched a nationwide UK songwriting competition to mark Stephen's death.

'A Song For Stephen' is an open invitation to songwriters across the United Kingdom to participate irrespective of colour, class, age or creed, and to come together to create a song that pays tribute to phenomenal writers like Lou Reed, Michael Jackson and Bob Marley.

Jacqueline Asafu-Adjaye, Sponsored Features Editor, The Voice Newspaper, said: "Iconic songwriters like Nick Ashford and Valerie Simpson who penned 'Ain't No Mountain High Enough' and Dolly Parton's 'I will Always Love You' are certainly songs, for me, that go some way to express the emotions that sustained, what became a twenty - year campaign effort, to achieve justice for Stephen."

The campaign has launched with a song produced by Kanye West and Emeli Sande producers Plutonium All Stars, which was played on XTRA In The Morning with Kojo & Jade today (13th December). 

The winner of Song For Stephen will be announced in the Spring. Find out more details at
