Please submit a video of you singing a pop song of your choice. You may sing to an instrumental backtrack or accompany yourself on an instrument. We will not consider auditions that are a cappella; you must have some form of instrumentation behind you. If you are singing to an instrumental backtrack, please choose something with minimal background vocals, preferably no background vocals. www.karaoke-version.com is a great place to find high-quality tracks, if you cannot find something suitable on YouTube.

Please introduce yourself and tell us your age and the name of the song you are performing before you sing. Please choose a song that you can sing comfortably. It is better to do an easier song that you can execute well than to attempt to do something harder and not quite get the notes.

We are looking for the following elements:
– Tuning: Your vocal performance is in tune (the notes are right).
– Timing: Your vocal performance is in time with the backtrack and rhythms are accurate.
– Performance: You have memorized the words and melody and are able to emote and tell the story of the song.

Please be mindful of song choice. We would prefer not to hear musical theatre songs. Please do not sing songs with swear words; look for radio edits where profanity has been changed or removed. For example, there is a clean version of “Drivers License” by Olivia Rodrigo. Aim to choose a song that is age appropriate. Read the lyrics separately from the melody to make sure that the story of the song makes sense for the age of the performer.

Your video must include:
– You introducing yourself and stating your age and the name of your song
– You singing one pop song with instrumental accompaniment, either with a track or an instrument

Upload your audition to YouTube as an unlisted video and send us the link in your audition form. Click here for instructions on how to create an “Unlisted” YouTube video.

If you have a performance resume, please upload it, if not, just tell us a little bit about your musical and/or stage background. Please have a photo ready to submit with your audition. Your photo should be a headshot from the shoulders up or half body – it’s up to you. Click here for a good example of a performer resume and photo.
