For a chance at a national show, recording contract and $100,000.
CBC is currently accepting audition videos for Cover Me Canada, a major new competitive reality show launching this Fall.
If you’re an unsigned musician or group, you’re invited to upload a video audition of your cover rendition of one of these classic Canadian songs:
– “Sundown” by Gordon Lightfoot
– “Run To You” by Bryan Adams
– “Life is a Highway” by Tom Cochrane
– “Black Velvet” by Alannah Myles
From the audition pool, finalists will be selected to compete live on television for the chance to win a $100,000 cash prize and a recording contract for their first original single to be released by Universal Music Canada.
I once submitted a video for a CBC competitive reality show, Fashion File Host Hunt, and I made the finalist cut and it totally changed the trajectory of my life. When I made the video I had mono and a full-time job – great excuses not to do it – but it was the right opportunity for me so I made it happen and you should too.
