- Record a 2-3 minute video of yourself. Introduce yourself with full name and perform a song acappella. The song can be your own or a cover. No background music allowed. NO EXCEPTIONS.
- The video must clearly show your face. A camera in set position throughout showing you in full frame is recommended.
- Singers are required to sing their selections from memory on the competition video entries. If a singer’s performance is not memorized, the entry will be disqualified.
- The video should be in the spirit of an audition. It may be shot in a home, school, church, synagogue, recital hall, or some other appropriate location, with or without an audience. Please take into account the acoustics of the room. A small room with dead acoustics will not flatter a voice.
