SARAH VAUGHAN INTERNATIONAL VOCAL JAZZ COMPETITION

I have myself entered in this competition. Alas, I am behind schedule! The competition began on May 16th, but I just found out about it and put in my three submissions last week. Here's how it goes: First, friends, family and fans get to vote. You do have to sign in with your Facebook credentials. After you start listening to a song, you will see the VOTE icon. Press that thang! Those with top votes will then be reviewed by a panel of music industry professionals. Voting ends on September 12th, and winners will be announced mid-October. The top prize is $5000, a recording contract, a fabulous gig at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center, and the take-off of a career. It won't be televised like some singing competitions, and there will be no dramatic stories. Still, this girl needs your support. You can vote on all three of my submissions here:
