The first of a three-day audition process for Binghamton-area singing competition Can You Go To the Note? took place at the Bundy Museum annex and was a rousing success. Devon Wright, owner of The Wright Style barber shop on Oak Street in Binghamton, hosted the event along with a panel of three judges. The atmosphere was happy and friendly as a large number of hopefuls of every age and ability turned out to give it all they had.
The competition’s sponsors, including WJOB-FM and Carpe Diem, have promised a phenomenal top prize to the winner, which includes:
—$3,000 worth of studio time and production at OnPoint Productions
—Guaranteed airplay of your new single on WJOB-FM
—Your single released on iTunes
—Regional TV spots on MTV and BET promoting your iTunes release!
