Production Description

Seeking contestants for the sixth annual SOCAL ICON, a solo vocal competition for talented young singers. Producer states: "Boasting celebrity and industry judges from TV, Broadway, film, and recording, the annual singing contest is conducted over a three-month period beginning in June and concluding with a final concert event in August. Originally called Inland Idol and OC Idol, SOCAL ICON was designed to be more than just a talent contest. Our goal is to always to give young singers an opportunity to showcase and get constructive feedback from educators and industry professionals in a safe and friendly environment. Several of ICON’s past finalists and winners have enjoyed professional success after the contest. They include: Xenia Martinez (top three on NBC’s 'The Voice'), Arianna Afsar (top 30 on 'American Idol' 2009 & Miss California 2010), and Rachel Crowe (top 10 on 'The X Factor'). Last year's winner in the 11-14 age division, Natalia Loya, has recently signed a deal with MyTai/Genuine Records and credits SOCAL ICON as giving her the start she needed. Three celebrity/industry judges and the audience members will cast votes to choose three winners (one from each age group.) Past celebrity judges include: Cathy Rigby (Tony-award winner and Olympic gymnast), Marc Cherry (creator of 'Desperate Housewives,' and Nia Peeples (actress and recording artist from 'Fame,' 'Pretty Little Liars,' 'Walker, Texas Ranger.'
