Madison Rising Completes One Million Star Spangled Banner Challenge And Ups The Ante To Five Million
Patriotic rock band Madison Rising has successfully completed its One Million Star Spangled Banner Challenge a full seven weeks earlier than expected. As a result, the group has significantly increased the stakes and re-launched the campaign as the Five Million Star Spangled Banner Challenge, http://www.starspangledbannerchallenge.com. This ambitious goal of reaching five million views on a single YouTube video is nearly unprecedented for an independent recording artist, but the band is confident they will be able to achieve it.
“We hit our goal of one million views on the video on the morning of September 14th – the exact date Francis Scott Key wrote the original version 198 years ago,” said band manager, Richard Mgrdechian. “There’s something bigger at work here, and we plan to do everything we can to take advantage of this serendipitous circumstance to continue to re-energize our National Anthem and make it the #1 best selling rock song in the country.”
