Year of Youth 2018

WYD Announces Winning Songs!

Last edited 8th July 2011

It's official. World Youth Day has picked its winning tunes. After listening to dozens of songs for the “Tuned into Madrid,” competition, the jury has selected seven songs among a pool of 25. But, the selection committee didn't agree with the public's taste. Only two of the seven winning songs, were among the voter's favorites.

The jury went for an international feel in its selection. The winners include:

  • “We've been made one” - by Darryll Wilson, Nepal
  • “Elevando mi canción” (Raising my song) - by Colombian group “Jóvenes Misioneros del Santo Padre”
  • “Joy” - by the French Emmanuel Community
  • "Radicati in te” - by Andrea Daconte, Alessandro Grasso and Antonio Minervini, Italy
  • “Síguele” (Follow Him) - by Nuns of the “Orden y Mandato de San Miguel”, Spain
  • “Faith in You” - by Cherrie Anderson, UK
  • "Venimos” (We Come) - Leonardo Jáuregui, Colombia
