(WXYZ) - An Ypsilanti teen received the surprise of a lifetime Friday on 7 Action News.
Dymond Harding is a singer-songwriter who recently entered to win a national pop singing competition through Verizon Wireless and the domestic violence agency Cornerstone
On Friday, Harding learned her original song, titled "Selfish Love" had received the most votes among 7 finalists nationwide.
Launched April 10, the PAVE (Preventing Abuse and Violence Through Education) the Way Project brings together competing teen musicians, aged 13 to 20, who share a passion for ending teen dating violence and are willing to share their stories.
In order to be considered, each original song had to promote healthy relationships.
For her prize, Harding will have the opportunity to perform in a recording of a new song written by Salvador Santana, collaborating alongside his father, 10-time Grammy Award winner, Carlos Santana.
