The winner of this year's Pasadena Idol competition receives the Idol Demo Pack, including studio time to produce a two-song demo and music video, 100 CDs for distribution, a feature article in The DENA magazine and the opportunity to perform at venues throughout the city.
The 10 contestants were selected from a pool of 40 talented youth who auditioned earlier this year for one of the finalist spots. After attending a series of workshops to help enhance performance and vocal techniques, the 10 finalists are now to step up to the microphone to compete for the Pasadena Idol crown.
The Pasadena Idol singing competition was created in 2007 by the City's Human Services and Recreation Department for local youth to showcase their talents and work with music professionals.
Co-sponsors for the event include Paseo Colorado, www.paseocoloradopasadena.com; Los Angeles College of Music, www.lacm.edu; OneSixFive Designs; Pasadena Community Access Corporation ("Pasadena Media), www.pasadenamedia.tv, The DENA Magazine, www.thedenamagazine.com; and local production companies Swartz Section, S Claz Productions, Mike Towns Sounds and Young Black and Gifted.
