Fans in and near Birmingham, mark your calendar! Taylor Hicks will be making a special guest appearance at the 6th annual Croonin’ For Critters, Thursday March 28th, at WorkPlay. Happy hour begins at 6:00 p.m. with the show starting at 7:00 p.m. Cover charge is $20.
Proceeds will benefit the 34th annual Do Dah Day, a fundraiser in support of homeless animals, set for May 18th, 2013, in Caldwell and Rhodes Parks.
Croonin’ For Critters borrows the American Idol format. Contestants will perform a song accompanied by a live band. Performance critiques will be delivered by a panel of celebrity judges…Janice Rogers and Jeh Jeh Prewitt of FOX6, with local musician Ona Watson Jr.
The audience will vote for their favorite singers through $1 donations. Audience members can vote for their favorite singer or singers as many times as they wish, at least until their money runs out. The top vote getter will be named Birmingham’s Critter Idol. A separate award will go to the most talented singer in the competition.
