When YTV's talent show The Next Star hits the road this month for its 5th Season – NL's own Tara Oram will be in the judges seat.
Tara's no stranger to the process - she was discovered on Canadian Idol back in 2007. That experience, coupled with the fact that she's a truly sweet person will no doubt make her the contestant's favourite. Tara knows her music too, as do her fellow judges Mark Spicoluk Senior Dir A&R Universal Canada/Founder Underground Operations and JUNO Award winner artist Keisha Chanté.
The Next Star is looking for the next pop superstar and is open to Canadians age 15 or younger. The regional casting calls begin at the World Trade and Convention Centre in Halifax on Saturday, April 28th continuing on with stops in Montreal, Winnipeg, Edmonton, Vancouver and Toronto. (click here for details).
Watch for the show to begin airing through the summer with the 'Top 12' shows to begin taping the last week of June. They'll narrow it down to 6 and further still until the winner of The Next Star Season 5 is announced during a live show during the third week of September.
If you follow Tara on twitter like we do @taraoram you'd know that she's just started announcing summer concert days. She's also in the running for ECMA Country Recording of the Year – if she wins next weekend she'll be added to the Cavendish Beach Music Festival line up too!
No matter how you look at it - there's lots for us Tara Oram fans to look forward to – we'll keep you posted on more good news as it happens. SABS
