The June Kraus Academy, in collaboration with the Daily Bread Organisation, is launching its first annual 'Singing to the African Stars Competition' for children aged between 6-18 years on 9 June 2012 in Johannesburg.

'Singing to the African Stars' is an educational programme that will identify, support, uplift and reward the talents of young vocal performers across Southern Africa, by organising competitive forums in which artists from ages 6 to 18 years may present their talents in the performance of contemporary, classical, crossover, African traditional, African urban and Afrikaans genres. Choirs and singing groups are welcome.

The Daily Bread Organisation is based in the northern Johannesburg informal settlement of Kya Sands but invites all members of this community and others to join in the celebration of the arts and of young talent.

Donations in kind (or otherwise) for prizes or volunteers to assist on the day are also welcome and appreciated by both staff and the children we work with.
