Young singers from Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties are encouraged to audition for the chance to compete in the judged event. Auditions will take placce from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 17, at The Galleria at Fort Lauderdale, 2414 E. Sunrise Blvd.
“Tri-Rail is proud to continue this annual tradition of showcasing the amazing talents of the young people in our community,” said Bonnie Arnold, public information officer of SFRTA/Tri-Rail. “This is the perfect way to engage with the families that we serve and strengthen the position of Tri-Rail as the way to travel throughout the South Florida.”
The singing competition is open to solo or group singers who are South Florida residents ages 5-17. Each act will have a four-minute opportunity to perform at the auditions. A panel of judges will select the acts that will perform in the final competition, which is scheduled for Saturday, Jan. 26, 2019, during Tri-Rail’s 11th annual “Rail Fun Day.”
During the January 2018 competition, 16-year-old Mecca Alexander of Miramar stole the hearts of the audience and judges with her performance of Rise Up by Andra Day, earning her the $500 grand prize, one-year contract inclusive of a photo shoot with composite cards courtesy of Posche Models & Talent and professional studio recording sessions with MikeSoperMusic.
Over the past 10 years, Tri-Rail’s “Rail Fun Day” has welcomed more than 23,000 families. The event has become an annual tradition as a free afternoon of interactive games, arts and crafts, and entertainment while promoting the benefits of riding the commuter rail system.
