Talented local singers vie to win the first Palm Springs Voice Competition hosted by Purple Room Restaurant and Stage.
The winner receives the grand price of $1000 and his or her own special debut solo show at Purple Room Restaurant and Stage.
Hopeful contestants auditioned in June for a spot in the competitive rounds. The fortunate 14 contestants selected represent a range of ages, backgrounds and musical styles, which will make for fun and entertaining shows. Who knows, the country's next breakout star may be in our midst.
Those who moved forward from the first competitive rounds on July 11 on July 26 will compete in subsequent rounds beginning September 27, until the winner is selected at the finale on October 25. The winner 's special solo show will be November 21.
Advancement will be determined by a panel of three judges and audience response.

So come out, show your support for all these talented singers and cheer on your favorites. Co-owner Mark Van Laanen added, " We have always known that the Valley has a lot of musical talent and these singers are some of the best. We are amazed at the stories and passions each person brings to the stage. Come hear the fine talent we have here in the desert."
