Delmarva Star: Calling all local singers
DJ Rusty Griswald from 96.5 stopped by 47 ABC to talk about Delmarva Star competition.
96.5 CTG/ WOW 101.1 & 99.3 / 101.5 The Mix are looking for the next Delmarva Star! Contestants will have the opportunity to audition at one of three qualifying events with the chance to move on to the finals in June.
The winner will receive a prize pack including a spot at this year's Delaware State Fair, the opportunity to sing the national anthem at a Delmarva Shorebirds game, a professional recording session, and professional photography session.
There will be 20 contestants at each of the three qualifying rounds. Then narrow it down to the finalists.
Locations will be The Chincoteague Community Center, the Marva Theatre in Pocomoke and Reign Event Center. The finals will be at Delmar Day in the Park on June 2.
This is how it all works:
Contestants will be given two minutes to perform the song of their choice a cappella. They will then be scored by our panel of judges with the top 5 advancing to the finale in June.
