If you are still jonesing for American Idol and The Voice now that those seasons are over, the YWCA of York and the York Revolution have something for you.
They have organized Voice Quest, a singing competition seeking the top singing talent in York County.
To compete, preliminary entries must be sent in via YouTube in a cappella style or accompanied by an instrumental performer - no recorded background music is permitted.
The YouTube entries can be sent to email@example.com, and the public can view the entries on the Facebook pages of the YWCA York and York Revolution.
Each contestant must donate $25 to the YWCA to be eligible.
"We're hoping it brings the community together," said Mike Chatburn, corporate partnerships associate for York Revolution. "Regardless of how far an individual makes it, they are still representing a great organization."
Finalists will be chosen in two categories - students age 18 and younger, and adults age 19 and over - when they perform during the live final round at Revolution games on Aug. 3 and Aug. 17.
The top four participants from each division will take turns performing between innings at games and the final winners will be determined by a combination of the judges' vote and fans in Sovereign Bank Stadium voting via text message.
The winners will receive suite nights at the York Revolution, Revolution game tickets and prizes from Menchey Music.
Before reaching the final round, singers must first be chosen from the YouTube entries and compete in a preliminary round at the stadium on a non-game day, and at the live semifinal rounds on July 26 to 29. The judges will determine who advances in each round.
Each participant will receive a free ticket to the game for the night of their performance, and can also purchase tickets for family and friends at a discounted price of $8.
