this will add to the already exciting national and world karaoke competition
Cincinnati, OH (PRWEB) May 15, 2012
Karaoke World Championships USA (KWCUSA) announced plans to start a separate competition for karaoke singers under 18. KWCUSA obtained permission last year to start an under 18 karaoke competition under the KWC and KWCUSA brand. The KWC world officials are currently in the exploration stages of extending the world competition to under 18.
Wendell Payne, President of KWCUSA, says, “KWCUSA has always wanted to extend the competition to under 18 and had planned this year to extend it to the 13 to 17 year age group. However after many calls and emails asking for ages 7 to 17 we are going to extend it to that entire group. We have to get feedback from current venues and other possible venues but those contacted so far are excited about the possibilities. We have seen many amazing voices at all ages over the years and this will add to the already exciting national and world karaoke competition.”
KWCUSA will begin accepting venues for under 17 competitions and singer registrations on Wednesday May 16th. This will be a national competition and include two age groups, 7 to 12 and 13 to 17. This year the under 17 group will be a separate competition however KWCUSA anticipates some combining of existing venues and timetables. KWCUSA will begin contacts with existing venues this week and those existing venues can add the under 17 group at no additional license fee this year only.
KWCUSA is looking for ideas on names for the division that include KWCUSA so go to the web site and toss KWCUSA some ideas.
