Hampton Idol to hold auditions


By Melissa Robinson
Contributing Editor 

  So you think you can sing? Do you have pipes like Mariah Carey, croon like Frank Sinatra or produce soulful sounds like Marvin Gaye? Then the city of Hampt­on is looking for you for the first ever Hampton Idol contest to be held at the Hampton Depot on Thursday, November 8 beginning at 6:30 p.m.

  Contestants will audition for a panel of three to five judges. Only solo acts will be considered and singers will sing “a capella,” (with no music accompaniment). Three semi-finalists will be chosen to sing at the Hampton Christmas tree lighting at the Train Depot on Thursday evening, November 22, and a winner will be chosen that night. The winner will receive a cash prize and be the guest singer at the Downtown Christmas Party following the annual Christmas parade on December 6. Last year the parade attracted over 5,000 people.

  Auditions are open to all ages for anyone who lives, works or attends school in Henry County.

“We wanted to open auditions to people who work in Hampton as well, because they are an important part of out community,” said one of the event’s organizers, Chris Moore.

  Auditions are open to all ages and minors must have parental or guardian consent to participate.

  For more information, contact Moore at 678-758-0606.
