DESCRIPTION OF EVENT
Habitat for Humanity Heartland Ontario is issuing a Call for Entries for vocalists who are proficient in singing classic rock. As part of the upcoming Finch Auto Group Party for Humanity, Habitat Heartland would like to show off some talented local singers to perform at the London Music Hall. The Media Sponsor for this event is CORUS and FM96.
Eight submissions will be selected to perform at the event
One winner will be selected by a panel of judges, and will receive a Grand Prize the night of the event
Two runners-up will receive additional prizes
One performer will win the People’s Choice Award through live voting at the event
General Admission tickets to Finch Auto Group Party for Humanity are $25.00 per person and VIP All Access Passes are $75.
The timing of the contest is as follows:
A web page of vocalists entering online will go live starting Wednesday, May 29, 2019 and running until July 12, 2019. These entrants will be vetted by Habitat Heartland staff. There will be a voting feature on the display page, and the community is encouraged to vote for their favorite candidates. The community vote tallies will be utilized, in concert with the Judges’ votes, to select eight Finalists who will be identified and notified by July 29, 2019 by email. All other contestants will be notified at that time as well. Judges decisions are final. Contestants must be 19 years of age or older.
Entrants may list only one YouTube video and to qualify, it must show the contestant singing a classic rock song using available karaoke tracks. The community and Judges may choose to take into consideration any other videos or sound files currently on the web (i.e. other YouTube videos, contestant’s website if one exists, contestant’s Facebook page, etc.) However, the key starting point will be the YouTube video URL submitted by the contestant.
Finalists will be invited to perform live at Finch Auto Group Party for Humanity, for a panel of Judges. This ticketed event will be open to the general public. Contestants will be accompanied by the karaoke tracks they have provided. Judges will attend personally. The final Winners and Runners-up will be selected at this time by the Judges based on solo skills, audience engagement, general demeanor, and overall grasp of the classic rock idiom.
