Special thanks to @krystle, @passion-ground, @meno, and, @verbal-d for help judging the contest this week. Great job guys.

Steemit Open Mic is not about winning or losing, it's about building a connections on Steemit through music. Watching the collaborations happen online between musicians who played and met on Steemit Open Mic is very rewarding and many of the people who play and post earn some nice rewards for playing a song.

For many, it's easier to get some Steem in your tip jar by playing for Steemit Open Mic than it is to play music on the street.

Steemit Open Mic Week 100 July Original --- by @arigenevieve

There were rumors that @zipporah had a very talented niece. Of course, I believed those rumors, but wondered if I was ever going to listen/see this niece of hers and then this week: BOOM - This little entry showed up in my feed, the voice of an angel I tell you. I'm a sucker for original songs, and this one is just special in ten ways plus one.

Put on some headphones, don't use the laptop... let her take you away. - @meno

To help in turning the Open-Mic page beyond 100, we have been blessed with a fresh new face and talented artist to mark such a notable transition. Ari is @zipporah’s niece and every bit as beautifully vulnerable and talented! Ari handily crushed it here with her maiden entry, “July.” Her song is one of heartbreak and introspection. One can sense this clearly amid the expressive recall of her emotive and artistic expressions. Ari’s sigh of relief at the end came after reliving the sorrowful indelible memories all throughout her performance – and once she finished, the weight of such remembrance was somehow lifted – at least until next July. - @passion-ground

Welcome to Steemit and Open Mic! Hope to hear more from you soon. - @luzcypher

2nd Place

You won 40 Steem and a 5-Pack of Steem Monster cards.

Steemit Open Mic Week 100 El Balcon Original Song --- by @pechichemena

when I clicked play and began listening to Pechiche’s “El Balcon,” I could not find any room for criticism but instead, I got all choked up as my heart swelled with pride at just what an incredible composition, production, and performance he put together in a very short time. I LOVE this song. You rock, brother! - @passion-ground

*I feel at times that pechi does not get enough recognition for his talent and contributions for the simple fact that he is my brother. But honestly, at the expense of being accused of some sort of nepotism, I'm going to take the risk of placing him on my top list. This song is just gorgeous, and the word is quite tamed there.^

The lyrics are genius and if you are not singing along by the second chorus, then you and I are polar opposites. - @meno

3rd Place

You won 26 Steem and a 5-Pack of Steem Monster cards.

Steemit Open Mic Week 100 Original Song Chapters Just Begun By Darren Claxton --- by @darrenclaxton

The songwriting machine is back, and boy he is not slowing down. I have no idea at this point and I'm not exaggerating how many songs of Darrens I think are bloody brilliant (to sound British). A few chords and some truth that is all a man needs to speak to the soul. Don't change my friend, keep on leaving those musical footprints behind - @meno

Like I keep saying, Darren has definitely got that special something when it comes to composing great music. The stories he tells, the guitar passages he writes, and the vocal melodies he creates are truly a sacred gift from a higher power. I’m certain that Darren has many more great chapters yet to unfold – and I look forward to each and every one of them! - @passion-groind

4th Place

You won 26 Steem and a 5-Pack of Steem Monster cards.

Steemit Openmic Week 100 I Say A Little Prayer Aretha Franklin --- by @drewsmusic

Drew has been gifted with one of the most pleasant falsettos I've ever had the pleasure to listen to. I was wondering how he would tackle this tribute to the late diva and he did amazingly. It's a very saddening thought to think that we've lost such a powerful music and cultural icon with Aretha's passing, but it makes me smile to see newer generations recognizing her talent and value. - @meno

*Drew was gone for a while, but he made it back for week 100! His tributary cover of Aretha Franklin’s “I Say a Little Prayer” is simply impeccable! It’s quite apparent that our man Drew from the Motor City is chock full of soulful passion and is a talent extraordinaire! I loved his tribute… R.I.P Aretha. * - @passion-ground

5th Place

You won 26 Steem and a 5-Pack of Steem Monster cards.

Open Mic Week 100 Lisa And Rhavi Or Tempo Ao Tempo Gelson Oliveira Cover --- by @lisamalletart

You two are just brilliant, so glad to see you both back with us for the 100 week of Open Mic - you never cease to impress or amaze me, you guys make this all look so easy.

You perform so brilliantly and create these amazing songs, making it all look effortless in the process - I have never found an entry from you to I didn't fall in love with.

You guys have such an infectious energy when you perform together, the audience can't help but be drawn into that energy - then there's the fact that your performances are always flawless, you two seriously kick ass with all you do - @krystle

Here's a screenshot of the prizes transferred to the winners this week.
