 “Every
week we see children come in (to Wilhelmina) with amazing talent. Some
kids sing, others dance. Some are solo acts, others are a group they
formed with other kids from their neighborhoods or perform with their
brothers and sisters. But one thing is for certain: they will knock your
socks off,” said Kelli Walters (center), agency director for Wilhelmina
Philadelphia. “All they want to do is perform, to make people smile, and
they have this incredible support network of family and friends. We’re
honored to be able to help them take that joy of performing to the next
level— and hopefully, help them realize their talents to the fullest
potential.”
The
80 contestants chosen will be divided across 10
shows and tape their performances before a studio audience in January.
The resulting shows will then air in an hour-long prime time slot,
followed the next day by a half-hour results show during which the
winner will be announced.
There
will be one winner each week, selected in part by viewers’ votes over a
24-hr period following the show. The weekly winners will compete
against each other in a live finale for a prize package that includes,
among other things, a management contract with Wilhelmina Philadelphia.
