The TransPerfect Music City Bowl is in search of two vocalists to sing renditions of “The Star-Spangled Banner” and “God Bless America” at this year’s game inside Nissan Stadium.
Marking the fourth edition of the contest, the bowl has once again partnered with Amazon for the Amazon Voice of the Bowl competition. Aspiring and professional singers keen on performing these two iconic patriotic songs during the 26th installment of the TransPerfect Music City Bowl, set to take place on Dec. 30, 2023 at Nissan Stadium, can now submit video auditions for consideration.
“At Amazon, we are proud to partner with the TransPerfect Music City Bowl for another Amazon Voice of the Bowl, an initiative that blends the power of sports and music,” says Courtney Ross, Senior Manager of Community Engagement at Amazon. “By providing a stage for diverse talents to shine, we celebrate creativity and community, fostering connections that resonate far beyond the game.
“This partnership underscores our commitment to innovation and inclusivity, reflecting the very heart of what Amazon stands for.”
Candidates can submit their a capella performances to [email protected] throughout the next month. Auditions for the National Anthem should not exceed one minute and 30 seconds, while auditions for “God Bless America” should be no longer than a minute. Contestants are asked to include their name, age, email address and contact information along with their entry.
On Sept. 21, five finalists will be unveiled, and they will have the chance to perform live at the Amazon Voice of the Bowl grand finale event on Oct. 28, held at Ole Red.
In recent years, the Amazon Voice of the Bowl competition has witnessed an array of remarkable performances. Last year’s national anthem winner, recording artist Sarah Hardwig, captivated the Nissan Stadium crowd with her remarkable performance and has established herself as a rising artist in local scene.
The champions of the national anthem category in 2020, Chapel Hart, even secured the “Golden Buzzer” accolade on America’s Got Talent. The trio has created waves within the country music scene, collaborating with esteemed artists such as Darius Rucker and garnering praise from country music luminaries, including Dolly Parton, on social media.
