iSing St. Louis

Expires on 08/09/2014!

iSing is a Contemporary Christian Music Talent Search presented by JOY FM, Six Flags St. Louis, and Mozingo Music. Entries for the contest can be made online or mailed/dropped off to Mozingo Music during their normal office hours, Sunday, July 6th at 12noon – Monday, July 21st at 12noon. Then, the contest for the Top 10 selected entries will take place on Saturday, August 9th, 2014 at 4pm (tentatively – exact time will be announced), outside Six Flags Palace Theater.

INSTRUCTIONS AND INFORMATION

AS OF JULY 21st, APPLICATIONS ARE NO LONGER ACCEPTED

You can APPLY COMPLETELY ONLINE, or print off and mail/hand deliver (during normal office hours) your entry to Mozingo Music, 100 Clarkson Road, Ellisville, MO 63011, Attn. Steven Moore.

Completed entries MUST include the following:

  • Application and injury release form
  • Demo with only ONE Contemporary Christian song that you wish the judges to review.  If mailed or dropped off, clearly mark the demo with your name, phone number and song title.
  • Photo of contestant

Each CD or submitted demo should contain one Contemporary Christian song that you would like the judges to review, and that you would like to perform should you be selected as a finalist. When choosing a song, also keep in mind that you will be performing outdoors at Six Flags theme park. Medium and faster paced songs fit the surroundings more comfortably, but aren’t a requirement or determining factor. Here are some guidelines for the demo:

  • Song cannot be longer than 3 minutes and 30 seconds.
  • If using a soundtrack, you may use one with or without background vocals.
  • If playing instruments live, you and an accompanist are the only two instruments that can be involved. We will provide a keyboard. But you will have to provide any other instrument you choose to use.
  • Contestant can combine using soundtrack and playing along with an instrument.
  • You cannot have a live background vocalist on stage. This is only allowed through a soundtrack.
  • Demos should be exactly as you will sound if chosen to perform for iSing.
  • The CD demos or submitted files will become the property of JOY FM and will not be returned to you, regardless of whether or not you are selected as a finalist. All requirements must be met or possible disqualification will occur.

SELECTION PROCESS

Following our entry deadline of Monday, July 21st at 12noon, all entries will be reviewed and 10 finalists will be selected and contacted. On Monday, August 4th, JOY FM (99.1) will announce the Top 10 finalists on the morning show. The Top 10 will also be posted on JoyFM Facebook. On Saturday, August 9th, 2014, the Top 10 finalists will perform live in front of a panel of judges outside the Palace Theatre at Six Flags St. Louis.
