Matisyahu, whose music merges reggae beats, hip-hop and rock, wants fans to create a new version of the tune, which has been used extensively as the theme song for NBC's "Countdown to Vancouver" Olympics campaign. "One Day" is the lead single from Matisyahu's third album, Light, which was released by Epic Records in August, 2009.
The First Place Winner and two Runners-Up, selected personally by Matisyahu, will also see a link to their mix Tweeted to Matisyahu's 1.2 million followers and will each receive a year's Indaba Music Pro Membership and a signed vinyl copy of Light.
