      AUDITIONS NOW OPEN for Julia's Joy Voice Idol Competition for Ages 11-18

      Pillars of Light and Love is excited to present our third Julia's Joy Voice Idol Competition & Fundraiser! Twenty Contestants will compete in our live shows being held at the beautiful Shannondell Performing Arts Theater in Audubon, PA. Our first show will be Sunday, February 9th at 2pm with a Finale on February 23rd!  This year we will have two age groups competing for their own grand prize! Ten contestants in a 11-14 year-old group and ten contestants in a 15-18 year-old group will compete. The top 5 in each age group will be announced at the end of the first show and will go on to compete with two songs in the Finale on February 23rd. A $500.00 grand prize will be awarded to the winner in each age group at the Finale! Our goal for all of our Julia's Joy Programs is to empower youth. In this project, our mission is to strengthen confidence, and improve performance skill, in talented youth interested in performing publicly. To improve and strengthen skills, the 20 Contestants will receive free group vocal and performance coaching from our 2018 and 2019 Winners, Ava DiFiore and Rachel Roth, as well as local lead singer-and one of last year's Judges- the very talented Tina Belles from the Blonde, James Blonde band.  ​Dates for the group coaching for the top 20 Contestants will be held in December, January & February.
