Third Annual Blind Idol Competition
June 3, 2017 @ 4:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Inspired by the versatility of blind musicians, Anastasia Powell, a blind employee of IFB Solutions decided to organize a competition that would feature the talents of individuals who are legally blind. Chris Flynt, an employee of IFB and musician who is blind, believes that “you don’t need to see to be a performer or to enjoy music. You just have to feel it in your heart.”
Join IFB Solutions and A Brighter Path Programs for the third annual Blind Idol competition. Semifinal competition in Raleigh, NC on June 3, 2017 and will feature Piano Child Prodigy Matthew Whitaker.
Blind Idol finals will feature five vocalists on August 6 in Winston-Salem. For more information, please visit http://www.abpfoundation.org/news-events/BlindIdol.aspx
