Aspiring talent can schedule to audition for more than one type of performance, however an additional administrative fee will be charged for each audition type scheduled.

    Hello i-Shine Team,
    My 13 year old daughter, Jessica Vogt, feels she has been called by the Lord to “shine” His light to her generation. She has been singing and performing since she was 10 years old and would be honored to have the opportunity to audition for i-Shine. She is a singer-songwriter and accompanies herself on guitar and keys. She’s also the lead singer of her girl band. I’m sure you receive many emails but, I would ask that you take a moment to pray over and check out Jessica’s website: You can also check out her You-tube page: What you are doing seems to fits perfectly with what Jessica has been called to. We do not live in Tennessee but will be in the area this June 21-28 for the GMA’s Immerse Conference. If you would be interested in meeting with Jessica we would love to set up a time to meet with you while we are in the area. Blessings to you, Pilar Vogt (Jessica’s mom)

    Quick question, if I audition when I am 17, but I turn 18 about a month later ( I’m only 13 so that’s a LONG time from now), will it still be ok? I can’t audition now cuz of school stuff and I graduate when I’m 17. Sooo, is that all good, or is it not that great?

    Will there be any opportunities for those over the age of 17? That would include acting or performing in the show. What would be the best way to contact?
