#CastingCall Singers for Reality TV Show Rising Star

ABC gave critics a first look at its new singing competition show that takes viewer interaction to a new level. Titled Rising Star, the live show is based on an Israeli format that has a Voice-like audition twist.

Here’s how it works:
The singer takes the stage with a big video wall separating them from the audience. They start to sing and viewers vote on whether they are good or bad using a smartphone app in real time. There’s a meter on the screen as the votes are tallied while they are singing. As the song progresses, photos of the fans voting are shown on the giant video screen.  When they reach a certain level of votes, the screen goes up and reveals them to the audience — thus, “rising” star.


Looking for amazing singers, duos and small groups for a new singing show on ABC.

Auditions coming up in the following cities:

Dallas 3/29
Atlanta 4/1
Chicago 4/8
Nashville 4/11
Los Angeles 4/15
New York City 4/24
Boston  4/26

Everyone asks “what exactly do you do Jessica?” What some of my family members say, “she tweets for a living” is my favorite, but really the title that puts food on the table is “Social Media Influencer,” the definition sounds simple, someone who influences others through social media, but I consider myself a Citizen Journalist broadcasting and entertaining with news, thoughts, opinions, delivering information in my own unique way. Famous for my ‘sass wit and straight from the hip’ style I’ve always been called a “Social Media Pioneer” in the music industry. I’m also an On-Air/Online Broadcasting Host and Personality, Digital Media Strategist, Country and Music Blogger/Journalist as well as a Nationally recognized Speaker and Founder of Country Music Chat, News and Views Entertainment Website CMChatLIVE.com. My favorite accomplishment is starting the largest Country Music Hashtag community in the world Country Music’s #CMChat. It all started with a hunch...back in the early 2000’s I would dial up the internet via AOL and join chat rooms whilst watching my favorite programs on TV. Loved watching Reality Shows with my Mom in Tucson, and blowing her mind with how I always knew who was going home on the Bachelor or Big Brother. Don’t think she ever caught on that I was talking to people via computer on the East Coast, where it had already aired. (We didn’t have the uber-spoiler Twitter or Facebook to ruin results and awards shows for us yet.) I’ve been taking over the internet, one tweet at a time and have accumulated over 3 Million followers/friends/fans across all my Social Media networks. Over the years I’ve been consistently ranked as an influential online personality and even named as a Forbes Top 50 Social Media Power Influencer. I was the first person Merle Haggard followed when he got on Twitter and spent the day with Garth Brooks at Twitter and Facebook when joined the social media world.
