GENERATION FOR CREATION BRINGS ELITE TALENT SEARCH TO SHELBYVILLE

Area Youth Invited to Audition April 5 for Summertime Children’s Benefit Show


(SHELBYVILLE/MURFREESBORO, Tenn.)—Representatives from Generation for Creation Inc., a Murfreesboro-based nonprofit organization devoted to promoting the arts among youth, will visit Shelbyville’s Recreation Center, 220 Tulip Tree Road, on Saturday, April 5, to conduct auditions for GFC’s annual talent show.

Monica S. Johnson, founder and creative director for GFC, said young people ages 7-17 will be allowed to first register, then audition, on April 5 between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., to compete in the Sixth Annual Children’s Benefit Talent Competition, which will be held in Tucker Theatre on the campus of Middle Tennessee State University.

Would-be participants may audition in the categories of drama, singing, art, modeling (male and female) and musical performance. Children also are welcomed to audition in more than one category. Solo, duo and group acts are also invited to audition.

Johnson said those who wish to audition for the singing or dance categories must have a karaoke CD of their music at the time of the audition. Additionally, she noted, “Lyrics must be G-rated for all musical and dance numbers … (and) talent must bring performance attire and a photo to the audition.”

GFC judges and talent scouts will be present at the April 5 audition in Shelbyville. Those competing in the July 26 talent event will vie for first-, second- and third-place trophies in each category. One overall grand prize, $500, will be awarded this year, Johnson said.

Columbia, Tenn., native Lynnette Cole, former Miss USA and the current director for the Miss Southern Tennessee pageant, will serve as the mistress of ceremonies for this year’s GFC talent show.

An avid support of GFC and its mission to encourage and promote the arts, Cole said, “Each year my spirit is renewed knowing that Generation for Creation exists, giving children a place to encourage, develop, create and express their talents. Sometimes we all need to remember our dreams as a child and aspire to be everything we want to be.”
