While the Broadway stages will remain closed until at least next summer, one Augusta University student is keeping the music going as he attempts to make it to the top in an online singing competition.
The contest features categories for high school and college-aged students, who submit videos of themselves performing a song from the musical theater canon as they advance each week.
The grand prize includes a $1,000 donation to a charity of the winner’s choice. The winner will also record and release a single on the Broadway Records label to benefit The Actors Fund.
Williams is currently in the top 30, but needs the public’s votes to advance to round three and the top 15, which will be announced Oct. 16.
BroadwayWorld features weekly live shows on Facebook with Broadway judges who provide feedback and have the option to move one of the contestants to the next round by unanimous decision.
Vote for Williams here. Voting for round two ends at 11:59 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 15.
