Macon,GA– As if the 478 Sings United competition couldn’t get any crazier, now contest officials have added a “Redemption Round”!
Currently, the contest has reached its third round with eight contestants.
Initially, the contest began with 32 artists/bands, and now eight of those eliminated musicians will be competing for a chance to open one of the concerts in the 2021 Cherry Blossom Festival and record a track at Capricorn Studios in Macon with the extremely talented music producer, Steve Ivey.
Musicians/bands will return May 25th-29th for the ?Redemption Round.?
The returning artists are:
- Ashton Smith
- Ethan Payne
- JGC Kool
- Lizzy Driggers
- Watch For Deer
- Water Street
- Zach Butler
Players for the ?Redemption Round? had the highest average votes for the number of rounds they participated in the main contest. Officials have yet to announce the artist returning to redeem themselves.
In the ?Redemption Round,? each vote will cost voters $1 and those dollars benefiting the Central Georgia COVID-19 Response & Recovery Fund.
?478 Sings United? created by United Way of Central Georgia, Mercer University, Visit Macon, 100.9 The Creek, WGXA, and local singers have already helped raise over $37k to benefit the Fund.
There are two more rounds before a Grand Prize Winner is announced!
