The World Youth Day anthem, with words by Auxiliary Bishop Cesar Franco of Madrid, was released in November. But when WYD organizers started feeling the burn of the online commentators, they opened a worldwide contest, soliciting songs -- not to replace the bishop's hymn, but to play alongside it.
Some 270 songs were submitted and 138 were deemed eligible, said Rivera. The public was being asked to go to a website -- www.madridmeencanta.org -- and vote for their favorites by May 31. A WYD panel was to take the top 25 vote-getters and choose five of them to feature in Madrid.
