CMR Star Search 2013
The Canadian Multicultural Radio – CMR 101.3 FM (www.cmr24.fm) proudly presents ‘CMR Star Search 2013’ which was launched in May. The main aim this year is to again seek out, expose and reward the best of multicultural music talent from all of the communities CMR serves. CMR 101.3FM is used as a wonderful outlet to reach out to all types of audiences. The CMR Star Search stage is a great platform for aspiring singers to showcase their talent and versatility. CMR has created and will be airing advertisements on various media outlets in regards to promote the CTD initiative. Advertisements calling out potential contestants are being aired on the radio across all boards numerous weeks before the auditions will be held. This provides ample time for listeners and audiences to call in with their questions and to register. Auditions will be held in July, and selected contestants will move on to other rounds with eliminations, eventually leading up to a Grand Finale in August. The finalists will have the chance of a lifetime to perform in front of a live audience at the CMR Star Fest 2013. After the Grand Finale, the top 6 contestants will be chosen by the judges and announced as winners. They will then get the opportunity to create a CD which will be produced, distributed and promoted by CMR.

The Canadian Talent Development Initiative
The Canadian Talent Development Initiative (CTD) component has evolved over the years and has become a successful initiative carried out by Canadian Multicultural Radio (CMR). This is the 8th year such an initiative is being carried out but in the last two years, CMR did not just want to meet the proposal but make an approach to exceed its proposal and requirements for the CTD initiative focusing on singing. Hence, CMR developed a new talent search called ‘CMR Star Search’ with the goal of seeking out, exposing and rewarding the best of multicultural music talent from all of the communities it serves. A website was created yearly specifically for the purpose of promoting and reaching out to all types of audiences. This gave listeners and audiences the opportunity to read, gather information and register. Other social media outlets were also used to get the word out to interested artists. This initiative serves as a platform for local artists to showcase their vocal ability at absolutely no cost to them. We take pride in giving back to the community and our talented individuals and will only continue to do so.
