Twenty contestants who make the audition will compete in our live shows to be held January 30th and Finale on February 13, 2022. This is a pop song competition and for the first time, we are planning for contestants to perform with a LIVE BAND for each show! Ten contestants in a 11-14 year-old group, and ten contestants in a 15-18 year-old group will compete. The top 5 in each age group will be announced at the end of the first show and will go on to compete with two songs in the Finale on February 13th. A $500.00 grand prize will be awarded to the winner in each age group at the Finale!
Our goal for all of our Julia's Joy Programs is to empower youth. In this project, our mission is to strengthen confidence, and improve performance skill, in talented youth, especially those interested in performing publicly. To improve and strengthen skills, the 20 Contestants will receive free group vocal and performance coaching on Sunday afternoons November through January at the Empowering U Center in Trappe. Those who pass the audition will be required to attend the majority of the coaching sessions and rehearsals.
