For the past several weeks, karaoke singers from all over the area have been competing for a chance to win a little bit of cash, and to raise funds for St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital. It’s called “Karaoke for the Cure,” and it’s starting here.
This Wednesday night, warm-ups start at 7 and the contest starts at 8. Twenty-five contestants will bring their best performances to the crowd, in hopes of raising the most money for the cause. There are two prize pools, each with their own criteria for winning. A panel of judges made up of sponsors, radio personalities, and guests will score the contestants on talent and presentation. The crowd chooses its own winners as well–by voting. Each vote costs $1 and you can vote as many times, and for as many people as you like. Contestants pleasing both the crowd and the judges could win prize money from both pools!
This contest is a wonderful time–the talent in this pool of contestants is unreal, and the crowd is incredibly supportive to match. So hit up the ATM, bring your $1s, $5s, and $50s to support your favorite singers, and more importantly, St. Jude’s. In a contest like this one, everyone is a winner, because we’re all supporting a great cause!
A great time is promised, as well as some extraordinary performances you will never see anywhere else. This is where the rubber meets the road, folks. It’s no ordinary karaoke night–it’s Karaoke for the Cure!
