    Hi! My name is Kayla and I was told that Thursdays is going to be a big conference and then Friday is going to be the auditions. Is that correct?

      We prefer in person auditions. But in your case we could have you send in a video. I cannot guarantee that it will be looked at the same way as an in person audition, because our judges have been tricked before with videos and would much rather see someone in person before casting them..

      If you would like to send in a video you can send it to

    Hello. I am planning to make a video for the auditions in may. Since I live in FL,i read on the ishine auditions link that I can send a video with my audition. My question is who do i send my video audition to? How can i get an audition slip and send the money? And since we have to do a dance,can I do a praise dance for my audition? And how will I know if I’m chosen? Thank you,please forgive all the questions,but I need to know a little more. Thank you,God bless.
