TelEm Group’s mobile provider, TelCell, has started a massive island-wide talent search to shine the spotlight on St. Maarten’s talented youth.

Kicking off this week, St. Maarten’s favourite mobile provider, in collaboration with the group Xtratight Entertainment, will be organizing a "Breakthrough" Campaign, featuring the hottest and most creative youth talent.

They are being assembled for a round of auditions that will be taking place at the Cultural Center, Backstreet, August 17, with finals scheduled to take place at the Casino Royal Theater, Maho, September 28.

Through a series of auditions, elimination rounds and performances, youth aged 10 through 18 will be selected for a chance to perform on stage where they can win some fabulous prizes along with real encouragement to take their talents further in the entertainment industry .

The talent categories being showcased includes, but is not limited to:

Vocals, rapping, stand up- comedy, drama, freestyle/creative.

Amongst the prizes available for winners is a recording contract and video clip production for one single along with a host of prizes from various partners and collaborators on the project.


The promotion will also allow the winners of each segment to be adopted by TelCell’s Commercial and Marketing team for future promotions and demonstrations.

TelEm Group is not a stranger to exposing youth talent on St. Maarten, having successfully sponsored the St. Maarten Idol contest in collaboration with Hard Rock Café, earlier this year.

The company sponsored the first Flash Mob contest amongst St. Maarten schools to rave reviews last year.

This year’s Breakthrough event carries with it the possibility of TV and/or Cinema promotions once the required sponsors and contributors can be encouraged to take part.

TelEm Group is currently promoting the Breakthrough talent search campaign in the local electronic and print media using the slogan "Your Fame, Our Aim!"
