Music enthusiasts nationwide at the entry-level now have another opportunity to break into the big league if they succeed in the new Acapella Battle Season 1 by Vocal Art, a Lagos-based creative shop based on the mainland.
According to a release by the organizers, “Vocal Art challenge is a daring contest, a platform that brings life and celebrates the under-recognized Acapella genre while discovering, rewarding, and projecting talented artists within its sphere”
The contest recently opened to participation and has witnessed impressive interest among wanna-be performers who have been sending in entries. The Acapella challenge encourages teamwork and will create opportunities for young people to form groups that will sing together throughout their careers.
There are no restrictions in the competition either in terms of type of music, age, linguistic, or geographical area. All are welcome.
Organizers also aver that participants can either present original music or existing songs as long as they respect copyright rules. “What matters to us are factors such as vocal technique, musicality, originality, stage presence, and overall performance,” says the company’s website regarding judging criteria.
Vocal Art aims to “create a distinguished talent show that would not only be different from existing offerings but also deliver a grand and memorable experience”.
