If you have ever wished your star was found under the hot lights of the stage while you sing your heart out, the Lake Country open mic has a talent series for you.

Organizers of the 2012 event are welcoming every style of music including cover tunes and original songwriting to the stage.

“The contest is meant to spotlight an original singer/songwriter and give them performance and recording opportunities,” said organizer Jennifer Boal, who is hoping the buzz will build and the people on the stage will be performing for a full house.

The open mic is hosted by the Lake Country Coffee House, located at 10356 Bottom Wood Lake Rd., where applications are available for any Okanagan resident over the age of 19.

The application deadline is March 21. Audition nights are the first Wednesday of each month starting April 4.

Only 20 spots are available, but musicians can perform solo, duet or as a trio, said Boal.

“Every event promises to be packed with live music, no karaoke backtracks will be allowed. Judges will be looking for vocal ability, song impact and audience connection.”
