Posted on Monday, 25 March 2013

Want to show off your singing skills but don’t want to wait in line for American Idol or The Voice? Well Pearland has the perfect opportunity for you. Pearland Parks and Recreation is holding its 7th annual “Let Freedom Sing” talent search. The auditions will be held at the Pearland Town Center at 11200 Broadway St.

Registration will start on Saturday, April 20 at 1 p.m. and end promptly at 2 p.m. You have to be a Pearland resident or be enrolled in a Pearland ISD school in order to participate.

There are two different categories; one is for children from 8 to 14 years old and they will sing “God Bless America” for their audition while anyone aged 15 and above will sing “The Star Spangled Banner.” Eight finalists will be chosen from each category. Each of the eight finalists will perform in front of a panel of judges during Summerfest which is held by Pearland Parks and Recreation.

Every Friday during the summer concert series between May and June, one finalist will sing his or her assigned song. The winner out of the eight finalists will sing at the city’s July 4th Celebration of Freedom. For more information visit or contact Angelica Smith, Special Events Coordinator, at 281.412.8907

We wish all of you great luck and let us know how you do! We look forward to seeing the great eight finalists at the Summerfest!
