Default Civic: Honda Announces Winner of the Sounds of Civic Competition

Honda announced the winner of the Sounds of Civic, a contest which encouraged Facebook fans to submit and vote for original songs inspired by each of the five 2012 Civic models; the Sedan, Coupe, Si, HF or Hybrid.

From eight top finalists, who each won $2,500 in music gear from Sam Ash Music Stores, Jonatan Barahona was selected as the winning artist. Barahona won the hearts of fans and a brand new 2012 Honda Civic with his original tribute, "Forever." A freelance piano player, Barahona used the Honda Civic Hybrid and his passion for the environment as inspiration.

"In the song, I wanted to bring to light Honda's ability to change the world through reliability and environmental responsibility. I believe that sustainable energy is something that we should be pursuing rather than digging ourselves deeper into dependence on fossil fuels," said Barahona. "[To Honda fans] Thank you so much for your votes and your support!"

Not only will Barahona be driving away in a new 2012 Civic, he will be performing his song live at the Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif. on October 1 as part of the 2011 Honda Civic Tour.

"There were so many wonderful contributions to The Sounds of Civic, but his entry stood out on production, originality, and best captured the spirit of the Honda Civic. Congratulations to Jonatan," said Kurt Antonius, assistant vice president of public relations, American Honda Motor Co., Inc.

Honda fans can hear "Forever" on the Honda Civic Facebook Page and watch the video on YouTube.
