Gino is known for his Top 5 Billboard Hot 100 hit “I Just Wanna Stop” and Top 10 Billboard Hot 100 hit “Living Inside Myself.”
“Hopefulness in the middle of troubled times is easy to imagine in song form but difficult to write about convincingly. Word by word, line by line, like coaxing someone from the precipice of a high tower. I am pleased to have been co-writer with Jamie on ‘Brighter Days’ (and most of the album)” said Gino Vannelli.
“It’s an incredible honor to win the 24th Annual USA Songwriting Competition! I’m so proud of ‘Brighter Days’, and its message. To anyone going through a dark time, know there are brighter days ahead. Thank you to Gino Vannelli and Ross Vannelli for bringing this song to life, my family, friends, and all those who have made this possible. Love to you all”, Jamie Alimorad, Top Winner of 24th Annual USA Songwriting Competition.
