Search for a Child Star
As you probably know by now, Shirley Temple very sadly died yesterday, aged 85. But although any death is a sad occasion, in the case of Shirley Temple, there is so much to celebrate about her truly remarkable life.
Well, they say when one door closes, another one opens. And by way of honouring the memory of Shirley Temple, we on MOONEY are launching a search for a new stage prodigy for the 21st century. .... A bright young star to join the long list of youngsters who have brightened up our screens, our stages, and our music players over the decades. In short, were looking for the next Shirley Temple, if you’re a girl. Or the next Mickey Rooney, if you’re a boy!
So, what exactly are we looking for?
- Well, you must be under 10 years of age.
- You must be prepared to demonstrate your talent to the world. And by talent, we are keeping the door wide open for singers, comedians, yodellers, ventriloquists.............. well, it's radio. Maybe not ventriloquists!
- And you must, of course, have the permission of your parents.
How do you enter? Well, much like our "singing in the shower" competition, we want you to record yourself doing your little routine, no more than 3 minutes duration.
You can record on your iPhone, your smart phone, your computer, if it has the facility or even a more professional facility, if you want. And then e-mail your entry to email@example.com. Put the title "search for a child star" on the subject field of your e-mail.
The winner will get to perform in our next Mooney Tunes Concert.
We are really looking forward to hearing all your entries.
