Is there a Kansas City musician or band that's looking to win a big, fancy recording contract?
(We're guessing the answer is yes.)
The X Factor, a singing-competition series that will air on Fox this fall, has expanded its auditions to cities across the country, including Kansas City.
Vocal groups and individuals (ages 12 and up) who can't make it to the cities holding auditions -- the closest metro to Kansas City is Chicago -- will be able to use an HD recording studio. In the studio, audtioning acts record a song a cappella and tell why they believe they have what it takes to become a global sensation.
Oak Park Mall will have one of the MyStudio audition booths from Friday, April 15, through Saturday, April 30. It will be located inside the mall near Macy's. The hours of operation will be from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Monday through Saturday, and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday.
