TeenStar, the UK’s only singing competition exclusively for pre-teens and teenagers, have now released their singing audition dates for their next singing competition starting in January 2014.
The TeenStar singing competition for pre-teens and teenagers consists of a UK-wide search for the finest young talent the UK has to offer, with audition dates being held across the country. The competition culminates in a spectacular National Grand Final, with last year’s event being held within The O2 in London. The competition attracted over 9,000 entrants to apply for the 2013 TeenStar singing audition dates in its first year, but it was the uniquely talented Luke Friend who was crowned the winner in an impressive showcase of the nation’s future stars.
TeenStar is brought to you by Future Music, the company behind the discovery of artists such as Warner Music’s Birdy, Columbia Record’s Lucy Spraggan, Union J’s Jaymi Hensley and Jahmene Douglas, both of which are now signed to Sony Music, and Luke Friend who’s currently storming his way through The X Factor! It has a prize pool worth thousands of pounds, including a £5,000 cash prize for the winning act to help develop their music as well as a chance to feature in top teen magazine Shout Mag. Contestants also have the chance to win prizes throughout the competition, such as recording studio time with some of the UK’s top producers, singing lessons and extensive promotion on YouTube.
Singing audition dates and competition events take place at some of the best venues in the UK including Birmingham’s NEC, Sheffield City Hall and Camden’s Dingwalls and will be judged by some of the music industry’s top professionals, including DJs who work for radio stations such as BBC Radio 1, BBC Introducing, Kiss FM, Choice FM, plus national and regional press, local studios and record labels.
The audition dates and competition events are split into three age categories – the ‘Late Teens’ (16-19), the ‘Mid Teens’ (13-15) and a special category to search for the stars of tomorrow: the Pre-Teens! The singing competition provides a platform to help acts get noticed and offers winners the potential to be successfully launched in the UK as a major recording artist.
TeenStar singing audition dates are available across the UK, so if you’re a pre-teen or teen singer and think you’ve got what it takes, for more information and to enter go to: www.teenstarcompetition.co.uk
