TORONTO - SayWeCanFly's "Song of the Sparrow" video has aced MTVU's "The Freshmen" competition, awarding the video with future airplay on the college-targeted channel.

"Song of the Sparrow" was selected from a group of five up -and-coming artists by viewers who casted votes online.

MTVU is viewed at over 802 college campuses, where it plays commons areas, dorms and libraries. MTVU also reaches 55 million homes.

"It's amazing to see a platform like MTV still caring about up and coming artists," SayWeCanFly's Braden Barrie said. "It takes a lot of work to move forward in the music industry, and I can honestly say this has given me new perspective. MTV is clearly alive and well and I think really helps everyone connect and feel like family."

Barrie, who is the artist behind the SayWeCanFly moniker, has built his career through personal connections with fans through social media and live performances. With the release of his debut full-length, Between The Roses, those dedicated fans have shown undying support while helping to spread the word about SayWeCanFly.

"It means the world to me that everyone cared so much to make this happen," Barrie said. "It's moments like these when I think we all feel and understand how each of us plays such an important role in helping SayWeCanFly grow, and I hope everyone knows this was our win, not mine."
