Children sought to sing national anthem at Western & Southern Open


The Western & Southern Open is searching for children to sing the national anthem at the tennis event this summer.

The tournament is holding its annual casting call to audition children and young adults aged 7 through 17.

Auditioning youth will perform in two rounds of auditions.

First, all audition videos must be uploaded to the official casting call Facebook page. Videos can be of any song and must be at least 30 seconds long. The song must be sung a capella and cannot contain profane or offensive lyrics.

All videos must be uploaded by June 14.

Judges will then review the submissions and will select a limited number of performers to sing live on Fountain Square from 11 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. on June 28 in front of celebrity judges.

The finalists must sing the song they submitted on their Facebook video.
