Singing Contest For Charity – $1000 Top Prize
To further its mission to end homelessness, Wesley Housing is hosting a youth singing competition, Capital Country Challenge–A Battle of the Voices. The live finals of the competition will be held during Spring Kick! at Great Country Farms in Virginia’s wine country on May 5, 2012. The grand prize winner will receive a prize package including $1,000 cash. This competition will showcase up-and-coming local vocal talent in the country and country-pop crossover genres in two divisions—ages 8-14 and 15-22.
Online auditions began March 1 and will close on March 28 with audition videos posted on YouTube. Judges (local members of the music community) will score the video performances with the five singers in each division with the highest scores being named Finalists. Two Fan Favorites—based upon the online performances with the highest number of “likes”—will automatically earn a spot in the live finals on May 5th. Complete audition procedures and competition rules are available at www.CapitalCountryChallenge.com.
Proceeds from Spring Kick! ticket sales and audition fees will help Wesley Housing accomplish its mission: develop and preserve affordable housing for low-income families and individuals, seniors, and individuals with disabilities in Northern Virginia who might otherwise face homelessness.
