Applications available for "Be The Next"

  • Date: April 01, 2019  (all day)
Medical City Lewisville Grand Theater announces the return of its Be The Next… Performer Challenge, a two-phased contest for performers of Texas-style music. Beginning Monday, April 1, performers are invited to submit their entries for a chance to win a booking at a future City of Lewisville concert event.

Launched last year, Be The Next… invites performers to submit a video of themselves covering a song written or recorded by a Texas artist. All styles of music are welcome, and videos may be of a solo performer or include up to one accompanist. Videos must be submitted to by Friday, April 19, at 11:59 p.m.

Three semi-finalists will be selected by a staff and artist committee and invited to perform their song submission live during the Saturday, May 18 Texas Tunes concert featuring the Texicana Mamas: Tish Hinojosa, Patricia Vonne, and Stephanie Urbina Jones. The challenge performance begins at 8 p.m., and Texas Tunes audience members will vote via text messaging to select the contest winner. The winner will be announced at the end of the evening’s event and invited to perform an opening set for a 2019 Sounds of Lewisville concert.
