Kids With Big Voices: It’s Time To ‘Sing Out’ For Kahala Mall
Kahala Mall has extended its entry deadline until June 15 for its “Sing 2012″ keiki vocal competition.
Last year’s inaugural event drew a standing-room-only crowd to the mall’s center court as children ages 9 to 18 competed before professional judges for gift certificates and prizes.
This year’s panel includes Lehua Kalima, Hawaii Five-O production supervisor Angela Laprete, ADR Talent agency vice president Naz Anderson and singer-musician Kamakakehau Fernandez.
Hawaii youths must submit a minimum 1-minute YouTube video clip of their talent to be eligible as a contestant. Clips may be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or dropped by to the mall management office by June 15. The 24 semi-finalists will be notified by June 22 in order to prepare for the semifinals at 6 p.m. July 25-26.
Contestants also should include a one-page, double-spaced biography describing the singer as well as all contact information (name, address, phone number and email address).
Semifinalists also must submit a CD with the chosen karaoke song that they wish to perform; it should be 3 minutes or less in length.
The final competition is set for 2 to 4 p.m. Aug. 11, with a special performance by the Colby Benson Band. For more information, call Jessi Everett at 732-7736 or email email@example.com.
