The phone lines are now open for the All New Digicel Rising Stars’ Call In auditions. Contestants who are unable to attend the 5 auditions happening island-wide now have the option to call 444-2443 and record a 30 second demo in the hopes of getting a call back.
The dedicated Digicel line, which opened on Friday May 20, has already received thousands of calls from all across the island.
“We sent text messages over the weekend to all our loyal voters through the years to let them know about the Call In audition line and we also let our Facebook and Twitter fans know and the response so far has been tremendous.” Explained the show’s Producer, Sharon Schroeter.
The Call In audition line, which costs contestants $10 per call, gives persons the opportunity to both register and audition. When contestants call they will be prompted to leave their name, parish, age and their 30 second audition. And since persons are allowed to call as many times as they like they have as many chances as possible to improve and “come again”.
Shelly-Ann Curran, Digicel’s Senior Sponsorship Manager explains the reason for opening the line: “The producers of Digicel Rising Stars have always tried to ensure that everyone has an opportunity at stardom. We at Digicel feel the same way and have dedicated a line specifically for the auditions so that everyone in Jamaica who thinks they have talent has the opportunity to audition, no matter their situation. So for those persons who just can’t make it to the auditions, now it is just a call away, and they can enter as many times as they like. This year, Digicel is making sure everyone has a chance at stardom.”
The All New Digicel Rising Stars’ Call In audition line 444-2443 is now up and running and is open to anyone over the age of 16, who is not currently signed to a management or recording contract, and is a citizen of Jamaica or has a visa entitling them to work in Jamaica. Contestants are able to leave as many entries as they like and will be contacted by the show’s producers if successful.
And for those who like making the trek to auditions, Montego Bay (May 28), Ocho Rios (May 29) and Kingston (June 4) are up next.
