Legion supports 'The Making of a Star'

With help from The American Legion, a reality performance television program debuting this summer on a major broadcast network is looking for talented servicemembers and veterans.

Judges for “The Making of a Star” will be traveling the nation in the coming weeks, holding auditions in eight different cities, to select 12 finalists to compete for a chance to become a star. The series begins in July and wraps up in New York City during the week of the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.

Created by the producers at 5 Streams Global Entertainment, “The Making of a Star” is on a mission to prove that veterans, military personnel, National Guard members and reservists have the talent it takes for stardom.

Auditions, some of which will be in Legion posts, are planned for this spring, when the 12 finalists will be selected. Audition contestants will be drafted into a “performing arts boot camp,” where they will be trained to sing, dance and entertain. They will compete for various prizes, including a role in a feature film, a live international tour and other various sponsor-related awards.

Episodes of the star-studded series will be shot in New York City, where troops from all over the world will be entertained by some of the biggest names in the industry in every show.

The entire series supports The American Legion by raising awareness of the organization in audition cities and making a substantial financial contribution to Legion programs.

Seattle,WA has Joint Base Lewis/McChord and has a lot of veterans and active duty who are very talented. For those of us not in the area of auditions, what about making it possible to send video or audio of our talent???

I served on active duty for 24 years in the Army MP Corp and now volunteer as a featured singer and performer with the 191st U.S.Army Band. I am a member of Post 1000 at the California HQ's San Francisco. Are there going to be auditions in San Francisco, Ca.? Why not? I was a Commander of Post 26; Adjutant of my District Post; National Ritual Commissioner. Can I participate to promote the American Legion and my service to this country?

Why not include "Military Cities" such as Norfolk, Jacksonville, San Diego and such? The majority of verterans have a tendency to settle in their last duty station. You want Vets, go to the source.
