Big FM Chennai has initiated a talent hunt show, ‘Big Singaara Singer’, to identify two golden voices from the city and give them with the opportunity to sing in one of the forthcoming Kollywood flicks. The contest, which commenced on April 21, consists of rigorous and meticulously put together on-air and on-ground auditions to ensure the best are selected. The show will culminate on May 17, 2008.
To give a fair opportunity to every talented enthusiast in Chennai, Big FM has divided the city into North, South, West and Central zones, and auditions would be conducted separately in each zone. Ten participants selected from each zone would then be eligible to participate in the quarter-finals.
Out of the 40 chosen participants, 10 would advance to the semi-finals, and one male and one female participant would be crowned as the ‘Big Singaara Singer’. The contest would be judged by popular playback singers like Tippu, Harini, Ranjith, and Vijay Yesudas, among others.
Speaking about the initiative, PB Ramaswamy, Cluster Head, Big FM, Tamil Nadu, said, “There is a plenty of talent hidden in every Tamilian, and this is part of Big FM Chennai’s endeavour to live the Tamilian Pride in everyday offerings. Through this initiative, we are providing the talented with a platform to be recognised and get an opportunity of a lifetime. We are thankful to Vijay Anthony, who has accepted to feature the winners of the contest as playback singers in his forthcoming film.”
Participants selected in the quarter-finals would be given the opportunity to sing on air. Big FM also plans to provide a platform for the participants to exhibit their talent by taking them across to various events and activities where they would get a chance to sing and entertain congregations.
