Talent Quest is in it’s 15th year of organizing Karaoke competitions nationwide. Talent Quest’s Florida Regional competition begins on July 11th and 12th starting with the Country categories (Men and Women compete separately) at Amvets Post 312 in North Port, FL. Then on July 18th and 19th the Pop/rock men an women along with the Masters men and women. All contestants will sing 3 songs then the top 5 in each category will sing a 4th song on Sunday in the Finals.
Typically, this competition spans across the state with Local venues qualified singers to compete at the Regional to try and win their way to the Nationals in Laughlin, NV. This year we had some complications and only had one local venue on board with just over a month to have the Regional before Nationals. So instead of the $125 self sponsor /entry fee we have been charging $50 to make it affordable for all contestants. The fee per singer is how we are sending the winners to the Nationals this year. Competitors can compete in up to two categories at $50 each category. We are already getting venues for the 2016 year.
We have had a fair response this year and can, as of today, send the top male and female overall point winners to the Nationals. We are having a raffle of a beautiful Voco Pro microphone the winner can choose the color. Along with a few other fundraisers we are hoping to be able to send more of the winners if not all.
Competitors can still register until the day the category starts. Anyone wanting to be a contestant this year or get their venue involved for next year can contact me directly, or our National owner. More info and all the Rules can be found at www.talentquest.org
