The CHRISTIAN FESTIVAL ASSOCIATION (CFA) announced plans for its 2010 NATIONAL TALENT SEARCH. It will partner with WORD LABEL GROUP to provide an artist development deal for the winner of the talent search.
"The purpose of this 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. The CHRISTIAN FESTIVAL ASSOCIATION is delighted to again be partnering with WORD LABEL GROUP to provide this unique new platform for aspiring Christian artists," said CFA Pres. BOB THOMPSON.
Regional competitions will take place at 19 CFA-affiliated festivals this summer and a regional winner will be determined at each festival. The 19 winners will compete in the national finals in NASHVILLE in SEPTEMBER. The overall winner will receive a development deal with WORD LABEL GROUP.
