Can you sing? Rap? Maybe accompany yourself on an instrument? Or write your own songs?
If you can do any of that, don't be idle! Compete for the title of Wake Tech Idol!
Contestants in the eighth-annual singing competition have the opportunity to compete for scholarship prizes of $2,000 for first place, $1,500 for second place and $1,250 for third place.
To compete, prepare a solo vocal performance that is at least two minutes long. The music can be in genre, from country to hip-hop, rock to classical, pop to gospel. Use a karaoke instrumental track, perform a capella or sing with live instrumentation – do not sing along with a pre-recorded song.
Record your performance on cellphone video in good lighting and with clear sound quality, and upload the video to your YouTube channel. Email the YouTube video link to [email protected] with the subject line "Wake Tech Idol 2023 Audition."
The deadline for contest submissions is 2 p.m. October 12.
Contestants who are chosen to advance to Round 2 will receive an invitation to audition in person via their Wake Tech email account.
Each contestant who makes the top 10 wins $100 and performs in the finals in front of a live audience in the Scott Northern Wake Campus Lecture Hall on November 17.
Wake Tech Idol is hosted and sponsored by the Entrepreneurship & Small Business Center, the Scott Northern Wake Campus Hospitality Committee and the Wake Tech Foundation.
