Audiences and contestants alike will remember the Singer/ Songwriter Competition from years past. We have changed the format this year to make it possible for even more talented singers to experience the thrill of singing on the new stage in front of a live audience. It is an all day event, Saturday, October 21, 2017, with the Vocal Challenge Finale at 7pm.
The Uptown! Vocal Challenge is open to amateur singers whether they write their own music or sing covers of published songs. We hope to see some returning contestants as well as new talent from a six county area; Chester, Delaware, Montgomery, Bucks and Philadelphia Counties and New Castle County, DE.
Non-professional singers of any age and at any point on their musical journey are welcome to enter the Vocal Challenge, just as long as it’s not their regular paying job. Like talent shows on television, we are hoping to hear a broad variety of musical genres from hip, new sounds to folk, rock, jazz, country, opera, and more. Singers will surprise the audience with their best voice!
For singers, entering the contest is easy. Please follow the link below. It’s only $25, and you will definitely get to sing on stage. Our panel of qualified judges from the music industry are eager to hear your sound. You will need to be ready to sing up to four songs in four rounds of competition and each singer will receive helpful feedback from judges along the way. The top 10 will sing in the Vocal Challenge Finale and the top five will receive prizes. The Grand Prize is $500 cash and studio time at Tribesound Productions, LLC in West Chester.
The audience always enjoys this event, encouraging local talent, knowing they could be watching the next big star. The Uptown! Vocal Challenge promises to be an exciting day with a sensational finale where the audience just may be the tie breaker.
