March 7, 2012 (NASHVILLE) - Renowned recording artist and performer Ingrid Michaelson is back with her fifth album Human Again, and Yamaha Entertainment Group will choose one lucky winner to see her perform the new songs live. Yamaha is giving away a meet and greet with the charming singer/songwriter, along with an autographed Yamaha A-series Acoustic/Electric guitar and more.
The sweepstakes begins March 7, 2012 at 10:00 a.m. CST and ends April 6, at 10:00 a.m. CST. One grand prize and six second-place winners will be chosen at random from all entries received. The grand prize consists of a meet and greet with Ingrid, an autographed Yamaha guitar, an autographed copy of her new album and two tickets to a U.S. concert date of choice between April 11 and May 17. Six second-place winners will win a Yamaha Guitalele, Yamaha's unique hybrid instrument that is half guitar and half ukulele, along with an autographed copy of Human Again.
The A-Series line of Yamaha acoustic-electric guitars features a stunning fresh look, amazing playability and the leading edge S.R.T. (Studio Response Technology) piezo/pickup system. The six guitars in the line are designed for players who require a reliable workhorse that looks, feels and sounds amazing in all applications. The A Series consists of performance level, bang-for-the-buck guitars that offer quality build and materials, including Solid Sitka Spruce Top, Mahogany Neck/Back/Sides, Ebony Bridge and a neck profile that is a thrill to play for hours on end.
Now available for the first time in the United States, the Guitalele is a miniature nylon guitar that looks and sounds like a ukulele, but features six strings and is tuned like a standard guitar up to an A (A/D/G/C/E/A). Chord fingering is the same for any standard-tuned guitar, but now guitarists can easily join the ukulele craze with a portable, playable and thoroughly unique instrument.
