July 19, 2007 at 1:34 PM (PT)
CLEAR CHANNEL Modern AC KYSR (STAR 98.7)/LOS ANGELES is staging an ambitious search for the next rock star in the aptly named "RockStar98.7' competition. The grand prize winner will be given $25,000 cash, $2,000 in Guitar Center equipment and a record deal with Ironworks Music (owned and operated by KIEFER SUTHERLAND and JUDE COLE).
(And no, just because the label is co-owned by SUTHERLAND, the winner will not have to finish recording the debut album in 24 HOURS.)
Star 98.7 is inviting one and all to submit a video of themselves performing an original song to RockStar987 micro site www.rockstar987.com. Over 200 entries have already been submitted. All qualifying video performances are posted for viewing online as they are received. Online voting (by logging on to www.rockstar987.com) will choose one finalist. Four others will be chosen by a panel of judges that includes JUDE COLE, SUGAR RAY singer MARK MCGRATH, VH1 EVP Music RICK KRIM and STAR98.7 PD CHARESE FRUGE.
The five finalists will each perform at least one original song on stage at the KEY CLUB on the SUNSET STRIP in front of a live audience on FRIDAY, AUGUST 17th. Immediately following the performances, a panel of judges will determine the grand prize winner.
