I'm working with the promoters of Simon Cowell's new show, X-Factor coming out on Fox Television in the Fall and I would like to ask for your assistance in getting the community engaged and to participate.
We need your help. We want to reach out to all ASIANS, SOUTH ASIANS and PACIFIC ISLANDERS in the US who are singers – both as soloists and as groups. We are looking to increase the representation of Asian Americans, South Asians and Pacific Islanders on the show. You can help us by:
1. Please "Like" the Facebook page API'S CAN SING and encourage your friends and family to share the information about this. We don't want this to be a one-time thing! We want to build a supportive space online. Add videos of your favorite Asian American, South Asian and Pacific Islander artists. The link: http://www.facebook.com/APIsCanSing
2. Please get the word out to your friends, parents, cousins, church choirs, karaoke groups and encourage them to audition. If they want to audition, sign up information is at this website: http://thexfactor.blogs.fox.com/
Auditions are taking place in 6 cities:
1. LOS ANGELES – COMPLETED
2. MIAMI – APRIL 7
3. NEW YORK – APRIL 14
4. SEATTLE – APRIL 20
5. CHICAGO – APRIL 27
6. DALLAS – MAY 26
Please spread the word! Official rules and info are attached.
