Local Singer-Songwriter Meagan Gipson Finalist in Public Housing Awareness Contest

ReThink's latest contest is reinforcing the saying "home is where the heart is."

The contest, called "Why Housing Matters," is raising awareness about public housing through music. Participants in the contest were asked to submit excerpts on what home means to them. The contest has been narrowed down to 10 finalists, and singer-songwriter Jewel will use the winner of a final round of voting as inspiration for a new song.

One of the finalists is Arizona native Meagan Gipson, a musician who has played all over the Valley.
