On Sunday, December 6th, ten artists from across the Alberta Capital Region sang and rapped on the Newcap Radio stage at West Edmonton Mall, in front of a panel of industry professionals, as part of the My United Way Voice contest.
The top ten contestants were chosen from almost 50 entries, with the winner to be selected by the public through an online vote. If you weren't able to attend, here's what you missed from this talented group.
Now it's time for you to select a Top 3. Visit myunitedwayvoice.ca to listen to their full songs and vote for your favorite. You can vote once a day every day until January 15th. The three artists with the most votes will have the opportunity to perform at United Way's Red Tie Gala in February.
The ultimate winner of the contest will decided by live tweet voting on February 25th, 2016.
This winner will receive a fully-sponsored prize package valued at $10,000, including:
• Professionally recorded demo and performance coaching with PlanIt Sound
• $2,500 cash prize* from AltaPro
• Artist highlight video
• Red carpet-ready treatment with clothing, jewelry, hair & make up provided by Mr. Derk, Who Cares Wear, Hunt Amor and Pose Salon
