Compete for $500 and an appearance on 106 & Park in the Sparkle Singing Challenge

Singing competitions are quickly becoming a way for unheard artists to get their names out there, especially for singers in cities like my hometown that don't have lots of ways for new artists to be heard. I haven't fallen in love with singing competitions yet, (because I don't play well with others,) but this might be a great opportunity for you or someone you know:
