"As a former music marketing executive, I was so excited to find the Songstagram/kord platform," Croon said. If I could have had a tool like this when I was doing grassroots marketing for artists, it would have grown our fan engagement exponentially!"

During the contest, Mike Cano shared funny submissions across his social media outlets. "I love that I get the opportunity to directly interact and share videos with my fans through Songstagram/kord," stated Cano.

Cano, a regular comedian at many comedy clubs, including The Improv, has quickly risen to popularity after opening for some of the biggest names in comedy. He has appeared on NBC Universal's Mun2 TV, Fuse TV, and Latino 101. Cano is now the host of his own comedy show,"Mike Cano's Comedy Party", held regularly at The Ontario Improv. On April 21, Cano will announce the launch of the second "Laugh at My Expense" contest during his comedy show at 8:00 p.m. Follow Cano on Twitter at @Mikecanolol to stay updated on the latest contest announcements and submissions.
