Music contest at Marketplace Mall
Saturday, July 07, 2012
The "Hang on to the Dream" competition gives anyone age 17 and younger a chance to impress judges and potentially win free studio recording time. Many Rochester area singers took a shot, but the prize was eventually won by a 14-year-old girl from Spencerport. She will have the opportunity to sing at the Water Street Music Hall tonight, and then will get 20 free hours of recording time at GFI studios in Rochester.
Three-time Indie Music Award winner, Melia, who is also from Spencerport, was at the event, and thinks competitions like this are great for Rochester.
"I think it is awesome that there are competitions out here. Especially cause there is so much talent in Rochester that goes unseen," says Melia. "So I really, really feel that it is awesome. When I was younger, I would've loved to do all that. So I think it is awesome that we are doing this for the young kids round here."
