The Search for Americas African Idol is On!!

(Atlanta, Georgia) (May 01, 2005)- C.C. Ryder,
Executive Director of Americas African Idol, LLC,
proudly announces the launch of the reality television
show, Americas African Idol to begin airing in
October 2005. Auditions for talent will begin in
August 2005 beginning in Atlanta, Georgia and
continuing in thirty-one (31) additional cities across
the United States. Pre-registration begins
immediately

States Mr. Ryder, After reviewing reality shows being
broadcast on television, I saw African-American talent
not only being neglected but also somewhat mistreated.
African-American music has three (3) separate
categories-Hip-Hop, Gospel, and Rhythm & Blues-with
divisions for both single artists and groups. The
great thing is that the two (2) groups will not
compete against each other! I feel that not giving
each of these groups their own competition put
potential recording artists at an unfair advantage in
seeking to further their career-thus, after two (2)
years of laying the foundation, I am proud to now
announce the launching of Americas African Idol !
I am looking forward to seeing the multitude of talent
being showcased on a fair basis.

In additional to the three (3) categories, there will
also be a Youth Division for talent ages eight (8)
years to seventeen (17) years in order for them to
compete against their peers.

All winners in each city, region, and finals receive
cash prizes with the ultimate Americas African Idol
receiving not only a cash prize of $5000.00 and a
record recording contract, but also an expense paid
trip for two (2) to Africa.

Persons wishing to work with the show as Community
Talent Partners or as Celebrity Judges are urged to
contact us immediately.
