Six battles. Five boroughs. One ultimate winner.
Our talent quest is back for a fifth season! We're looking for this year's best undiscovered performer in New York City. Hundreds entered, only 60 were chosen. Beginning with the Manhattan Battle on February 7, they'll compete in monthly Borough Battles live in The Greene Space and emceed by WQXR's Terrance McKnight. The five borough winners, determined by audience vote, will be sent to the Ultimate Battle on June 27.
They'll also get live feedback from award-winning artists, radio hosts and music executives, including: Helga Davis, of Philip Glass' Einstein on the Beach and a Q2 Music contributing host; Alicia Olatuja, Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir soloist; producers Nick Sansano and Bob Power; Hardcore-Soul Queen Tamar-kali; producer/singer/songwriter Eren Cannata; President of The Black Rock Coalition LaRonda Davis; A&R Executive at RCA Records Lindsey Cook and others. These musical acts will compete for bragging rights and huge prizes — including a showcase performance at the famous Apollo Theater's Amateur Night.
