Know any young musicians who overcame a lack of confidence?

The lucky winner will be featured in a video and win €500.

For a small island like Ireland, we haven't half left our mark on the international music scene. From international icons like Bono and Sinéad O'Connor to the more recent success of Hozier and Niall Horan, millions of people have heard the music of Irish voices.

If you were to sit any one of those musicians down and ask what their journey was like, we sincerely doubt any would say it was easy. No matter how successful you are at present, there was always a more doubtful time in your past.

That's just as true for any of those superstars as it is for the up-and-coming musicians across the country.

As part of our Time To Shine campaign with Wrigley's Extra, we want to hear your stories. If you can think of anyone (including yourself) who is a young musician/performer aged between 18-24 who overcame a lack of confidence, fill in the form below and get involved by using #TimeToShine on social media.

You should never underestimate the power of confidence. It's what helps us bring ourselves to the next level, no matter your craft or your art.

One lucky musician will be featured in a video where we will tell the world their personal story, as well as win €500. The video will not only help them get their name out there by reaching thousands of people, but could also help the next person in the same boat to gain that bit of extra confidence.

To find out more about what our #TimeToShine campaign is all about, have a look at spoken word artist Róisín Whelan's story.

There’s confidence inside all of us and with Extra at your side, you can let that confidence out. Chewing gum helps refresh your mouth and your mind and bring out the best version of ourselves for the world to see. Time to Shine.
