Lougheed Sings winner to be announced at concert Friday
The winner of the Lougheed Sings competition will be announced Friday, Aug. 31 at the end of a red carpet event showcasing the local up-and-coming talent.
The 12 finalists, narrowed down from 327 entrants, will perform the music of Madonna to an expected crowed of hundreds.
The grand prize winner will be chosen through a combination of judges' points and the number of votes received.
The public has until Aug. 30 to submit votes in person at the mall or online at the Lougheed Town Centre Facebook page.
The grand prize includes two tickets to Madonna's Sept. 30 Vancouver concert, a $500 shopping spree at Lougheed Town Centre, and a $4,900 scholarship from Rockstar Academy to the RSA Gold Singing program.
The runner-up will receive a $500 gift card from Best Buy Mobile at the mall.
Burnaby residents Tatiana Banden, Frankie Cena and Stephen Scaccia are among the finalists, as well as residents of Coquitlam, Port Moody and Vancouver.
