PORTLAND, Ore., Jan. 6, 2011 /Christian Newswire/ -- Now through January 31, 2011, OCP Facebook fans have the chance to win a personalized VIP concert from Catholic recording artists: Steve Angrisano, ValLimar Jansen, Pedro Rubalcava and Dan Schutte.

The winner will receive a personalized DVD featuring a mini-concert with song dedications from each of the four OCP artists, as well as a bonus song from the artist of their choice.

"We're very excited to offer this sweepstakes to our Facebook fans," says Mónica Rada, Marketing Manager for OCP. "It's a one of a kind prize."

The artists and composers chosen for the mini-concerts span several genres of music published by OCP including: traditional/liturgical, Latin American and contemporary Christian.

"We wanted to include a variety of OCP's talented artists," says Director of Artists and Repertoire, Tom Tomaszek. "The project features Dan Schutte's spiritual and liturgical songs, the new contemporary Catholic music of Steve Angrisano and ValLimar Jansen, and the Latin sound of Pedro Rubalcava’s music. Fans might enter the sweepstakes for one particular artist, but they'll have the chance to discover someone new as well."

"We encourage fans to share the sweepstakes entry with their friends on Facebook," Rada explains. "The concert is meant to inspire and unite communities. It can be dedicated to either an individual or a group of people. So, the more people from one community that enter, the better chance that group has to be part of this truly unique experience."

The sweepstakes -- held exclusively at Facebook.com/OCPmusic -- starts January 6, 2011 and runs through January 31, 2011. To enter, OCP Facebook fans simply click on the 'Sweepstakes' tab and complete the entry form. The winner will be chosen after the sweepstakes ends.
