Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) January 16, 2007
American Idol move over. The Spirited Woman Singing Contest is about to begin. Bang the drums. Roll out the red carpet. The goal of the contest is for women of all ages to "express their spirited woman self." To show spirit through song. To have fun singing. And to express enthusiasm, character, creativity and talent to the world.
The contest begins on January 16, 2007, and all entries must be submitted by midnight February 7, 2007, Pacific Standard Time. The winners will be announced on Valentine's Day, February 14 at 1 p.m. PST.

Nancy Mills, Spirited Woman's fearless founder, has written "The Spirited Woman Song." Well, truth be told, just the lyrics, since the song has no melody. And for those who want to know, this is the first song Mills has ever written.
Listen to a version of Mills singing her song (if she can sing it, anyone can): http://www.thespiritedwoman.com/singingcontest/files/nancy_singing.
The job of the future contestants (if you can call it a job) is to interpret Mills' lyrics in the most spirited woman way imaginable. To add a melody. To add instruments. And if so desired, to add a chorus. Then record the song creation and enter the contest by submitting an audio, a video, or both.
The 1st prize winner in the audio and video category will win $100 each, receive the Spirited Woman Singing Award, be profiled and have their audio and/or video appear on the popular Spirited Woman website (http://www.thespiritedwoman.com), MySpace page (http://www.myspace.com/thespiritedwoman) and You Tube page.
"We've made it so easy to enter," says Mills. "We've even set up a contest phone line, where you can sing your song entry over the phone. How cool is that?"
Women of all singing levels, from amateur to professional, and all ages, that means from young girls to 100 plus, are invited to enter the contest. You can enter solo or with others -- a group of friends, mom, sister, husbands, brothers, back-up band, kids -- the main performer though must be a woman.
"The contest is not about being the next Kelly Clarkson or Carrie Underwood, it's about expressing yourself through your inner talent, and strutting your spirited woman stuff to the world," says Mills. "It's about having fun."
The winners will be selected by popular vote, just like American Idol. Mills, and her team of three Spirited Woman judges -- singer/songwriter Jamie Shea (member of The Walrus and The Holmes-Shea Band); filmmaker Lisa Murray, who's video "Free Hugs in Hollywood" has been viewed over 500,000 times; and LA comedienne Roz Browne (winner of numerous comedy awards) -- will pick the top 10 contestants per category, then submit them to the 4,000 plus women in the spirited woman community to vote on and to choose the top three winners in each.
