A brand new show on the Trinity Broadcasting Network in the US will be looking for "Christian music's brightest new star."
Gifted will be an American Idol style talent search for Christian musicians hosted by Backstreet Boy Brian Littrell.
The show has already visited more than 20 cities across the United States including Denver, Oklahoma City, Nashville, Atlanta, Chicago and chosen 100 competitors to attend the Super Regionals to compete to become one of only eight finalists. The finalists will then meet in Los Angeles to compete on a two-hour televised finale.
The winner of the competition will receive a recording contract from a major record label, management by the Wright Entertainment Group (who coincidently manages Littrell & the Backstreet Boys) and a $10 000 donation will be made to the church where the winner originally auditioned.
No word on whether the show will be aired in Canada but for more information check out: http://www.giftedtalentsearch.com/
