Talent Show in Rockford Looks to Rising Stars


FINAL CALL for auditions are on Saturday, DECEMBER 1st, 2012

A friend of mine passed this flier around on Facebook for a new Rockford event encouraging our young kids to compete for respect and recognition. This is a very interesting idea, since this gives the youth in Rockford another way to divert their time away from violence by offering them a high-prized, and community involved, event. From the flier you can see that any person between the ages of 7 and 17 can audition. FINAL CALL for auditions are on DECEMBER 1st, 2012. Basically, if you have a talent that you feel could take you to the top of the charts, or catapult you into stardom, or just win you a $1,000 then YOU SHOULD audition on December 1st if you haven’t already to become the ‘Rising Star of The Rock’. That’s right, just as the flier says; “If you can dance, sing, rap, yodel, whatever then come out!”.

The FINAL CALL for auditions are on Saturday, DECEMBER 1st, 2012 at the Booker Washington Center located at 524 Kent Street from 10:00AM until 6:00PM.

If you are just wishing to witness such an epic event involving our youth then just show up to Auburn High School on December 8th @ 5PM and witness a star be born right here in Rockford! Tickets are $5 for viewers, and performers can register within Auburn High School or Smoke House Bar-B-Que.

If you are registering to take part in the event then there is a $20 registration fee for individuals and a $25 registration fee for groups, 5% of which will go to the Auburn High School baseball team! ALL performers will be using family-friendly material. The winner of the Rising Star of the Rock Talent Show will receive not only the $1,000 grand prize, but also a makeover, a photo shoot, and a TWO HOUR studio session. Parents: if you’re reading this try to get your kid involved!! It is a good opportunity for them to not only showcase their talents but also become connected with other minds that are much like their own: involved with music and art, and in need of positive influences.
