As part of the 30th Annual Main Street Days held May 16-18 in Historic Downtown Grapevine, JG Entertainment will debut the 1st DFW ICON vocal competition.
As well as hopes of finding promising talent and launching the next big star, DFW ICON will benefit Kidd’s Kids, the organization founded by the late Kidd Kraddick.
DFW ICON will open the microphone to talented singers between the ages of 7 and 24.
Winner packages are expected to exceed $20,000 in prizes, including recording, branding, social media, photo shoots, image consulting and scholarships.
At the helm of DFW ICON is Dallas native Jonathan George, CEO of JG Entertainment. George lives in Los Angeles and has developed names on Disney, Nickelodeon, MTV, Universal, Sony and more.
“It is exciting to be coming home to Dallas and Grapevine to find the most promising talent,” George said. “We are always looking for the new up and coming stars. They are out there. You just have to find them.”
Preliminary rounds will be held at the Palace Theatre May 16 and 17. Finals will be held on the 30th Annual Main Street Days Main Stage on May 18.
Talent will be placed in four categories grouped by ages 7-11, 12-15, 16-19 and 20-24.
