As part of the 30th Annual Main Street Days held in Historic Downtown Grapevine May 16, 17 and 18, JG Entertainment will debut the First Annual DFW ICON vocal competition. At this exciting competition, JG Entertainment expects to find promising talent in hopes of launching the next big star. DFW ICON will also benefit Kidd’s Kids, the organization founded by the late Kidd Kraddick.

DFW ICON will open the microphone to talented singers between the ages seven to 24 years old. Winner packages exceed $20,000 in prizes including recording, branding, social media, photo shoots, image consulting, scholarships and more. 

At the helm of DFW ICON is Dallas native, Jonathan George, CEO of JG Entertainment. George currently lives in LA and is responsible for developing some of the biggest young names on Disney, Nickelodeon, MTV, Universal, Sony and more. George states, “It is exciting to be coming home to Dallas and Grapevine to find the most promising talent. We are always looking for the new up and coming stars. They are out there. You just have to find them.”

Preliminary rounds will be held at the Palace Theatre May 16 and 17. Finals will be held on the 30th Annual Main Street Days Main Stage on May 18. Talent will be placed in four categories grouped by ages 7-11, 12-15, 16-19 and 20-24. Those wanting to compete must register online.
