I know. I bet you thought I would never write about Nick Jonas on this blog.
But I have a little secret:
I like the Jonas Brothers.
Ever since Declan made me watch Camp Rock. And Camp Rock 2.
Here’s the thing. They are funny. And talented. And way better than some manufactured pop stars that can’t even sing, like that chick with the $ in her name.
I actually really like their new solo stuff too.
I AM NOT KIDDING.
I am… VERSATILE.
So, when Quaker Chewy let me know about Nick’s singing contest to find talented kids around the country, I knew I wanted to watch. They are coming to Denver in a mobile recording studio next week, and I am excited to hear everything the Mile High City has to offer.
From June 8 – August 5, 2011, parents can help their kids (aged 8-14) enter the Quaker Chewy Superstar Search contest:
1. Select from one of four pre-selected songs including:
- “Just The Way You Are” by Bruno Mars
- “Breathe” by Michelle Branch
- “Nothin’ on You” by B.o.B
- “Wildflower” by The JaneDear Girls
2. Create a vocal performance at the Mobile Recording Studio OR at home. (Videos recorded at the Mobile Recording Studio will be emailed to each participant so they can enter the contest.)
3. Fill out the entry form and upload the performance at www.ChewySuperstar.com.
Submissions will be narrowed to five finalists and America will have a chance to vote on starting August 29th – September 9th in an online viewing gallery at www.ChewySuperstar.com.
- Four finalists of the Quaker Chewy Superstar Search will each get a $1,000 cash prize.
- The Grand Prize winner will record a song produced by Nick Jonas, do an online music video, a contract with Jonas Group Management and $5,000 in cash.
THE REALLY COOL THING
Nick and Quaker Chewy have joined forces with the non-profit organization Little Kids Rock to make music education more accessible in schools across the nation. As the only national non-profit, rock and pop-oriented music program in the U.S. public schools, Little Kids Rock focuses on ensuring every public school student has an opportunity to experience music education.
This last fact may be the biggest reason I wanted to help out on this campaign.
Every year, we raise a ton of money for Declan’s school to support their music and art programs. Like, over $100,000 for one public school. Our biggest fundraiser is a rock concert featuring local Colorado bands, who donate their time to entertain BOTH parents and kids.
Kinda like Nick Jonas.
As we watch Camp Rock.
And Camp Rock 2.
