The CHRISTIAN FESTIVAL ASSOCIATION (CFA) recently announced plans for its 2009 NATIONAL TALENT SEARCH. The organization is partnering with WORD LABEL GROUP, which will provide a development deal for the winner of the nationwide search.
"The purpose of this exciting new venture is to identify and provide a platform for new artists who can communicate a God-centered worldview in the language of contemporary culture so that the next generation can see, hear and know God," said CFA Pres. BOB THOMPSON. "The CHRISTIAN FELLOWSHIP ASSOCIATION is delighted to partner with WORD LABEL GROUP to provide this unique new platform for aspiring Christian artists."
Regional competitions will take place at 19 CFA-affiliated festivals this summer and a regional winner will be determined at each festival. Those 19 winners will be invited to NASHVILLE in SEPTEMBER to participate in the national finals. The overall winner will receive a development deal with the WORD LABEL GROUP family of labels, which includes FERVENT RECORDS, MYRRH RECORDS and WORD RECORDS.
