ESPN Zone is searching for singers of all ages to compete in a one-day singing competition on Wednesday August 15, entitled, “Anthem Idol.” The contest puts entrants through a two-round competition with the winner going on to sing the national anthem at a Baltimore Orioles game. For the first round, contestants will sing 30 seconds of a song of their choosing. Five finalists will be selected to go onto the second and final round where they will each sing the national anthem in its entirety. The contest will be judged by a panel of local personalities, Orioles executives, and ESPN Zone staff; the crowd on-hand will also be able to cast votes for the final winner.
“We do a lot of events that allow Orioles fans to meet players and coaches, even announce a game; this time we wanted to give fans the opportunity to get on the field in front of the crowd,” said Leigh Friedman, ESPN Zone’s regional marketing manager. “We feel that ‘Anthem Idol’ will bring out some gifted singers. We’re really looking forward to hearing the contestants. It’s going to be difficult to narrow it down to only one in the end, but we’re ready to be entertained.”
The competition will take place at 6 p.m. at ESPN Zone, located at 601 E. Pratt St. Baltimore, MD 21202. Entry forms can be submitted today through August 14th in ESPN Zone’s SportsCenter Studio Store, or until the event’s capacity has been reached. In addition to competing for the grand prize, all entrants will be eligible for great prizes, including ESPN Zone game cards and tickets to upcoming Orioles games.
