L.A.-area gospel singers are invited to participate in the StarQuest digital competition for a chance to perform at the 14th Annual Taste of Soul Family Festival on Oct. 19, on Crenshaw Blvd., in Los Angeles.
The first step is to visit the Taste of Soul website – tasteofsoul.org/starquest – and follow the Instagram page, @TasteofsoulLa. The next and most important step is to upload a one-minute video submission of your singing. Be sure to tag @TasteofSoulLa and encourage your friends and family to like your video. One “like” on your profile page equals one vote, so spread the word and share your video with everyone! The video submission deadline is Sept. 15.
Winners will perform on one of the Taste of Soul platforms and receive a cash prize, a profile in the L.A. Sentinel Newspaper and a free workshop at the 1500 Sound Academy in Inglewood.
“We are pleased to add the ‘Gospel’ category to the StarQuest competition this year,” says Danny J. Bakewell, Sr., founder and creator of Taste of Soul and Chairman of Bakewell Media. “Gospel music is important to our culture and community. We look forward to being inspired by all of the talented gospel artists who will enroll in the newly designed digital competition.”
