Empowering Minds is celebrating 5 years of “Live & Unsigned” with 10 new talent contestants! Held in the fabulous Bella Concert Hall at Mount Royal University, “Live & Unsigned” is a talent contest featuring high-calibre performances from the top 10 youth contestants who have auditioned to secure their spot in the show. Prizes are awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd as judged and voted for by the audience.

Did you ever want to sit in the audience for America’s Got Talent? Do you want to be a judge of the talent? Well, Live & Unsigned gives you the opportunity to experience what it’s like to be both. Exercise your inner Simon Cowell – you get to be the judge if you are sitting in the audience with the winning contestant taking home $1000. The top ten acts have been selected from auditions received from youth across the city so this isn’t your typical talent contest – please check out the bios to our Facebook page of our selected contestants (will be posted in October).

A cocktail reception with an exceptional selection of silent auction items, starts at 6:00 p.m. and is followed with performances from our Top 10 acts at 7:30 p.m. We promise that the entertainers will surprise and delight you, as we have proven over the last four years. We hope to feature soloists, singer/songwriters, dancers and instrumentalists.

See you there! And thanks for your support of Empowering Minds!
