(Relaxnews) – On December 2, Sony will launch SuperSong, an international music contest in which the winning song will be included on the official album of the 2014 FIFA World Cup, taking place in Brazil next summer. Ricky Martin will head up the jury tasked with selecting the winning song. The Puerto Rican star is no stranger to World Cup music, as he sang “La Copa de la Vida” on the album of the 1998 edition of the tournament, which took place in France.

Aspiring musicians from 30 eligible countries — including France, the US, Japan and Russia — can head to SuperSong.com to upload a video showing their original musical tribute to the World Cup. Entries will be accepted through January 6, 2014.

After several elimination rounds, including one in which the general public can select their favorite by voting online, the winning song — written in English, Portuguese or Spanish — will be announced in February.

The winner will then fly to Puerto Rico to meet Ricky Martin and a music producer in order to record the final version of the song for the album, performed by Ricky Martin. And as an added bonus, the winner will receive two tickets to the final match at the 2014 FIFA World Cup.
