In 3 steps users actively participated in the creation of a song. They sent in original vocal tracks, decided on musical styles, created covers, voted and commented. Along the course of events, Enigma’s mastermind Michael Cretu allowed people to look behind the curtain by recording several video messages from his studio.

“The Social Song idea started as an experiment and it turned out to become a great and successful journey, which brought many Enigma fans and music lovers together. There hasn’t been anything comparable in the music industry – namely being so social to the core. I really enjoyed this experience.” Cretu says. People watched more than 1,000,000 times the videos, listened to samples, casted votes, posted, commented or simply visited the event website www.EnigmaSocialSong.com …

The final song will be accompanied by a user-generated cover, as well as a digital booklet giving credit to those who actively participated. Following the social idea, everyone has the chance to download the song for a symbolic price of only a tweet or a Facebook post!
