TelCell Breakthrough talent showcase back by popular demand

TelCell’s hugely successful Breakthrough Youth Talent Search is back by popular demand – and organizers plan to make the 2nd annual event the biggest and best to date.
Promotional advertisements have started to appear in the print, electronic and online media alerting the general public to the scheduled auditions that will be taking place within short, leading up to the grand final of contestants in September.
Once again the event is being organized in collaboration with show promoters Xtratight Entertainment.
“The chemistry between Xtratight’s managing Director, Berteaux “Mr Rude” Fleming and TelCell worked so well last time that we are joining up again to put on an even more spectacular show for St. Maarten’s youth,” said TelCell’s coordinator for the event, Angel Richardson.
She said, as with last year, the auditions will filter out the hottest acts in the categories of Vocals, Rapping, Dance, Beep Bopping, Stand-up Comedy, Drama, and a freestyle/creative category.
The youth talent will be spotted through a series of auditions, elimination rounds and performances in which youths aged 14-21 will be eligible to participate.
“We are looking for the most dynamic young acts that St. Maarten has to offer the entertainment world so that we can give them a taste of a dream life in the spotlight,” said Angel.
She said last year’s Breakthrough winners are now well known among their peers thanks to numerous personal and group appearances, promotional stints for TelCell, by voicing advertisements on radio and by sponsoring motivational posters on school buildings and sport center walls.
Last year’s winner have also been busy putting together a music video of their work and have collaborated on many hours of work in a professional recording studio.
“We are offering the same to this year’s winners with the advantage that last year’s winners have paved the way for them so they will be enthusiastically received once they fall in the spotlight,” said Angel.
This year’s prize winners can look forward to a recording contract and video clip production for one single along with a host of prizes from many partners and collaborators on the Breakthrough Youth Talent Search event.
Angel says TelEm Group supporters of the youth can assist greatly in promoting the upcoming show by word of mouth and by attending the auditions and show finals in support of participants and organizers once they are officially announced.
“We have seen that the youngsters really perform at their best when they have the full support of the audience behind them, so we are appealing to everyone to tell their family and friends about Breakthrough 2014 and how great it is going to be,” said Angel.
