Sixty semi-finalists of the Stars of the Future (SOF) music reality TV show will sing their hearts out in order to make it to the final 12 when they meet at the National Theatre, tomorrow, May 11.

They have a huge task of convincing the judges that they deserve to be finalists of the most sought after music reality show.

According to the organisers, Charterhouse, the popularity of the show has grown to the extent that when auditions were opened in April almost 600 talented young stars stormed both the Kumasi and Accra venues to prove to the three judges their worth. The ultimate winner will get a recording contract and a brand new car.

Stars of the Future presents young men and women between the ages of 16 and 26, an avenue to explore and sharpen their talent while singing Gospel, Highlife, hit songs of the 90's, oldies, among others.

They bring life to these performances on stage to a live audience and these electrifying renditions are telecast on TV for a wider audience viewership.

Special appearance and mentoring sessions by ace musicians in Ghana serve as an opportunity not only for these experienced musicians to impart their expertise to the contestants but also to give the audience a variety of music styles.

The series empower viewers to choose who becomes the next singing superstar, by voting their favourite to win the keenly contested title of 'Music Star of the Future'.

Stars of the Future reality series begin airing on GTV from May and will run till July.

An innovation to this year's event is the radio series where people would have the chance to listen to the contestants performance on various radio stations in the country.

Meanwhile, Justice, the winner of last year's SOF, has released an inspirational album that is sure to make waves in the music industry.
