    • Translate Song lyrics into another language

All rights not specified herein are reserved to and for the benefit of the copyright owner. Streaming songs performed in your services in audio and/or video requires a Streaming Licence.

Song Validation

CCLI’s SongSelect available at songselect.ccli.com makes it easy to validate the participation of a song or catalogue in the programme. Simply enter the song title in the search box and confirm the associated catalogue and author names. If your initial search results do not include the song you are looking for, check the box next to “Expand search to show all songs” for more results. Find a match and you’re good to go. If you do not find a match, the song is likely not covered by the Licence.
