The Sponsor of the Randomly Selected Winners Prize is

Link to web-store 
Prize - 1 digi bundle of winners choice
And here is what l came up with
My Inspiration came from Janis Joplin
Here is a little bit of History regarding the song
From Cheap Trill’s (1968)
Erma Franklin, Aretha's older sister, recorded the original version of 'Piece of My Heart.' She hit the R&B Top 10 with it in 1967. But once Joplin covered it, everyone forgot about Franklin. And for good reason: 'Piece of My Heart' made Joplin a star. Her performance is So great that she manages to make even the usually stifled Big Brother and the Holding Company sound good. A truly transcendental record for Joplin.
