I'M SUBMITTING IN THE VOCALIST CATEGORY. CAN I USE A SONG FOR MY AUDITION THAT'S NOT ON THE SONG LIST?
No. These songs were selected because they will be familiar to the judges and a Christian audience. They are known to contain Christian content and room to showcase vocal ability. In a real-world scenario, singers are required to know and interpret a variety of songs on demand. The judges believe it is keeping with appropriate training to ask contestants to work from a list.
In order to be considered for further evaluation and an opportunity to compete, videos need to be as described in the “Submission Information” section on this page. It is the desire of the judges to “level the playing field” by asking for everyone to submit a simple video audition as described.
Remember that you are being evaluated to see if you are ready for a career in Christian music. Wear what you would wear to perform to your audience. Your appearance communicates yourself as a professional artist.
Yes. The final competition in June will be open to the public. Tickets will be sold for $10 each at the door.
