HOWARD CITY — Singers of all ages are invited to compete in the singing talent showcase Hometown Idol when it comes to the Howard City Harvest Festival at 3 p.m. on Sept. 15 at Ensley Park.
Singers will compete in three age divisions: Juniors (age 12 and under), Teens (ages 13-19) and Adults (age 20+). Music must be age-appropriate and family friendly, however, any style of music is welcome.
Contestants may sing a cappella or bring a karaoke-style music track (no lead vocals) on CD or one instrument for accompaniment.
Singers will be judged on vocal performance, stage presence, execution (four-minute time limit), song choice, technique and appearance. An impartial panel will judge the event. The top three singers in each age division will receive a cash prize, sponsor prize pack, trophy and an invitation to perform in the Hometown Idol statewide finals to compete against the other Hometown Idol finalists for 2011 and 2012. Grand prizes will be worth up to $10,000. The judges’ decision is final.
Registration begins at 1 p.m. There is a $20 registration fee per contestant. Contestants can register online at www.yourhometownidol.com or at the event.
