Mount Vernon, Oh, April 23, 2012 – For those dreaming of becoming an “idol”, Ohio has the contest for them. Ohio Idol is a statewide singing competition that is exclusively for Ohio residents that are 12 years of age and older. Contestants can compete to win $10,000.00 in cash and a recording contract.

“There is so much talent here in Ohio that we never get to see on TV” said Steve Wise, President of InTune Promotions and show creator. “We want to give the talented residents of Ohio a place to showcase their talent, get performance experience and professional guidance. Our industry judges, along with the cash prize and recording contract, are keys to helping talented singers get on their way to a professional career.”
The Ohio Idol competition will consist of four rounds of auditions. The first round will be held at Westerville Central High School in Westerville Ohio on June 9th 2012. During the first round of auditions, everyone who registers will have the opportunity to sing in front of a panel of judges from the music industry.
