A virtual talent show will showcase talent of vocalists and bands located in the 419 area code.

It’s called “419 Sings,” and it represents a five week virtual talent show sponsored by the Marathon Center for the Performing Arts, United Way of Hancock County, and First National Bank.

Sixteen finalists will be selected to compete against each other through a virtual platform over a five-week period beginning in September for the chance to win: $2,500, a recording studio session with Stone Soup Recording Studio in Maumee and their own live performance at the Marathon Center for the Performing Arts.

Participants must be 18 years or older and live in Allen, Ashland, Auglaize, Crawford, Drake, Defiance, Erie, Fulton, Hancock, Hardin, Henry, Holmes, Huron, Lucas, Marion, Mercer, Morrow, Ottawa, Paulding, Putnam, Richland, Sandusky, Seneca, Van Wert, Wayne, Williams, Wood or Wyandot counties.

There is no cost to submit an entry. See for more information August 13. The competition begins September 15 via Facebook live, continuing through October 13.

Funds raised will support MCPA’s mission to enrich lives through the arts, culture and entertainment and UWHC’s ongoing mission to measurably improve people’s lives in Hancock County.

club news, fundraiser – whatever! It’s easy to do online.
