Hearing voices

It’s time to channel your inner karaoke star – the Durango Voice is back. Although auditions don’t take place till Feb.
23, submissions for the 4th annual Manna fundraiser are due Jan. 11.

Aspiring contestants are asked to submit their two-minute songs in mp3 format to durango voice2@gmail.com and to include their name, phone number and a short bio. The contest is open to all ages and abilities, from shower-singing amateurs to fledgling superstars.

Eighteen lucky winners will be chosen from the submissions to go onto the live auditions Feb. 23 at the Henry Strater Theatre. From there, 12 will be chosen by the four-judge panel to go on to the finals Sat., April 6, at the Strater.

In the meantime, finalists will also receive a free month of voice coaching. Three winners will be selected at the finals, and in addition to local notoriety and fame, will receive gift certificates, prizes and singing engagements around town.

The Durango Voice supports the efforts and mission of Manna. For more information about The Voice or Manna, visit www.mannasoup kitchen.org or email durangovoice2@gmail.com.
