i-SHINE SPRING ’13 – AUDITIONS REPORT:
We had over 48 kids audition on Friday, so thanks to all who made the trip to Nashville to be a part of our iShine special day. We gave out free CD’s and arranged for our production TV friends from TBN and Smile of A Child to do TV interviews of each one who came to audition.
We hope you had a blast and learned a lot from the experience. We have been able to review our applicants carefully and are happy to say that we have picked 7 lucky winners to be a part of our iShine KNECT TV Season 5 production. Some will be asked to serve as extra’s and some will be given lines in a new episode of iShine.
We are so proud of you all, we had a super talented bunch of iShine fans and families who really made the judges work hard this year! Each judge noted that the group from 2013 was the best and most talented they had ever seen at an iShine audition.
So GREAT JOB and stay tuned... we’ll be in touch !
Blessings – iShine Live.

Not just a nice thought…or a hopeful positive idea, but a sincere… involved prayer for God to comfort and heal the wounded in both mind and body. For Christians in that city and around the world to take the opportunity to pray and love those they encounter each and every day.
