As part of the 33rd Annual Main Street Fest, presented by Bank of the West, held in Historic Downtown Grapevine May 19, 20 and 21, JG Entertainment will host the 4th Annual DFW ICON vocal competition. At this exciting competition, JG Entertainment expects to find promising talent in hopes of launching the next big star.
DFW ICON will open the microphone to talented singers between the ages 7 to 30 years old. Winner packages exceed $20,000 in prizes including recording with award winning producers, artist branding, social media branding, photo shoots, image consulting, scholarships and more.
DFW ICON was created by Dallas native Jonathan George, CEO of JG Entertainment. George currently lives in LA and is responsible for producing some of the biggest young names on Disney, Nickelodeon, MTV, Universal, Sony and more. He is responsible for developing American Idol’s Dalton Rapattoni as well as Top 12 Guys Trevor Douglas. George states, “It is exciting to come home to Dallas to find the most promising talent. We are always looking for new and up coming stars. Stars are not born, they are created.”
Proceeds from DFW ICON will also benefit Kidd Kraddick's foundation, Kidd's Kids.
Preliminary rounds will be held at the Palace Theatre May 20 and 21. Finals will be held on the 33rd Annual Main Street Fest Main Stage on May 21. Talent will be placed in four categories grouped by ages 7-11, 12-15, 16-19 and 20-30. Those wanting to compete must register online at www.DFWICON.com.
