Charity on hunt for newest singing sensation

Variety’s Got Talent is on the hunt for the province’s newest singing sensation.

The talent search is seeking B.C. youth between the ages of 13-29 to audition for the contest. The winner, of the third annual competition presented by Coast Capital Savings, will receive a Rising Star music package and appear on the Variety Show of Hearts Telethon Feb. 16-17.

The Rising Star package includes a $600 gift certificate to Tom Lee, a songwriting lesson with Colin Wiebe and more. The contest was created in 2011.

Ten individuals will be chosen to compete in the finals on Feb. 9 at the River Rock Show Theatre. Nine of the performers will be chosen by music industry representatives  and the tenth will vie for a spot through an online voting contest.

Competitors must submit their audition video to the Variety’s Got Talent website before Jan.16.
