NEW YORK (AP) - Mark Ronson is lending his “Uptown Funk” to budding musicians.

The Recording Academy and Hyundai announced Tuesday that Ronson will serve as ambassador for the 2015 Grammy Amplifier, the organization’s program for mentoring artists. This year’s curators include Ziggy Marley, the Band Perry and singer-songwriter Allen Stone.

Artists can enter submissions starting Tuesday; the program will mentor 25 finalists. The top three will each win a recording session with a Grammy-winning producer, film a music video and earn a performance spot at a music festival or as an opening act for a top artist.

The program is in its third year. Past celebrity participants include David Guetta, Ariana Grande, Kendrick Lamar, Hunter Hayes and Robert Glasper.
