All of the qualifying rounds for the Creme de la Kids, Creme de la Tributes, and Creme de la King singing competitions will take place at Historic Main Street in Garden Grove, presented by the Garden Grove Downtown Business Association. Karaoke Scene is proud to welcome Historic Main Street to our KaraokeFest singing contests and look forward to a long time relationship with them in future years. Historic Main Street has provided a great venue for these contests and we thank them for all of their support and cooperation.
“Special thanks to Larry Vance (from the Azteca Mexican Restaurant) and Jill Lloyd from (Jill Lloyd and Associates, Inc.) for their diligence and hard work in helping to put this all together.”
The qualifying rounds for the Creme de la Kids and Creme de la Tributes competitions, held in conjunction with the Local Harvest Farmers Market, will be held on July 10th, 17th, 24th & 31st (all Sundays). This year 5 (five) finalists will be chosen each week (for each contest) to compete at KaraokeFest 2016 (no semi-finals).
The ever popular, crowd pleasing Creme de la Kids competition (for kids 17 years old and younger) returns with a brand new crop of extremely talented juniors, as well as returning veterans, ready to entertain and excite all in attendance.
Creme de la Tributes, born 2 years ago, will be back with a vengeance! If you sing (and/or) look like any popular singing star or character, WE WANT YOU! Frank Sinatra, Michael Jackson, Garth Brooks, Whitney Houston, Tom Jones. Luther Vandross, Janis Joplin, Stevie Wonder, Neil Diamond, Billy Joel, George Strait, Reba McEntire, Elton John, Aretha Franklin, Cher, Madonna, Bon Jovi, the list is endless. This is one of the most fun and exciting events we have ever staged at any KaraokeFest. Tribute singers, come on out and show everybody your stuff!
The qualifying round dates for the Creme de la King competition, held in conjunction with the Friday Night Car Shows, will also take place on Historic Main Street. They will take place on August 5th, 12th, 19th & 26th. This year 2 (two) finalists will be chosen each of the first three weeks and 4 (four) on the fourth week to compete at the finals (no semi-finals).
The finals for our spectacular Creme de la King (Elvis) contest will take place on Historic Main Street at the 17th Annual Elvis Festival on Sunday, August 28th (location subject to change).
KaraokeFest 2016 will happen on Saturday, September 17th at the fabulous L.A. County Fair in Pomona. All of the exciting details for KaraokeFest 2016 will be available at KaraokeScene.com and in our coming August/September issue.
And, of course, Karaoke Scene Magazine proudly presents the mother and father of all Karaoke singing contests, the highly prestigious Creme de la Creme singing competition that will be held at 15 venues throughout Southern California beginning on July 7th and continuing through the month of August and into September. Don’t miss your chance to compete for thousands in cash and prizes, your opportunity to perform on the main stage at KaraokeFest 2016 and be named “Male or Female Karaoke Vocalist of the Year.”
Many of you will remember that previous winners have gone on to appear on national television, win big bucks and even make it to American Idol. Who knows what could happen this year? You could be next!
We are so pleased to welcome back radio & television personality (and now author), Manny Pacheco, who will be coordinating this exciting event again this year. And remember, you may qualify at as many venues as you wish in order to increase your chances for making the “Finals” at KaraokeFest 2016. For details, and all of the Creme de la Creme venues.
All four contest “Finals” at KaraokeFest (“Creme,” “Kids,” “Tributes,” and “King”) will be streamed live to our website, KaraokeScene.com so that anyone, anywhere in the world, can enjoy the program. What a great opportunity for the families and friends of contestants as well as other Karaoke enthusiasts who cannot make it to KaraokeFest to be able to watch the show as it happens. FYI…many of the qualifying rounds will also be streamed. Be sure to check KaraokeScene.com for the streaming schedule.
KaraokeFest would not be possible without the generous support of our sponsor. I would like to take a moment to personally thank the Major Sponsor this year, VocoPro Professional Vocal Systems. We sincerely appreciate their support in making this the biggest and best “Fest” ever! We strongly encourage you to show your appreciation to this fine company and their products.
