Voices For Hope
2013 Winners

CURRENT ENTRY FORMS (by Mail or Online)

The 2013 Voices For Hope final auditions were held on April 27  in , Mystic CT.     Entries were received from several states,  and the chosen finalists auditioned live  to win a $500 scholarship and to be a Voices For Hope Ambassador, using the power of popular music to produce positive social action.  The 2013 audition song was "Be Your Own Hero", written by Kay Pere and Bob & Carol Dowgiallo.   The event culminated in an evening concert with all the Finalists joining the LUNCH Ensemble for a Harry Chapin Tribute event.  Below are the finalists, all exceptionally talented.   As far as we are concerned, any young person who gives their time and talent to help others in need is a winner in all the things that count in life.   All  finalists are eligible to take part in special LUNCH recording and performing events.  

        (Listen to our past Voices For Hope participants singing
songs written for them by Bill Pere, Kay Pere, and other talented writers)
