Oklahoma City’s own Guest Star Shawna Russell, who was named one of Nashville’s “Top Ten to Watch” will headline the evening of 10 amazing vocalists that will compete to become the 2010 OK City Star. Alex Hall, 2009 OK City Star winner will sing “The Dance,” the song she sang as a result of her win last year.
The 10 finalists were selected through three rounds of completion. The competitors range in ages 16 through 25 and come from six different Oklahoma Cities. Each of the 10 vocalists are competing for the following prizes: 1st Prize – Professional composition and studio recording of an original song plus a $2000 Visa Gift Card; 2nd Prize - $500; 3rd Prize - $300; 4th – 10th prizes will receive $50.00. Fifty percent of the expert Oklahoma City music community panel of judge’s scores from semi-finals will carry over to the evening competition. The remaining fifty percent will come from a vote of the live audience at Herrick auditorium.
