Fifteen singing sensations have been discovered and now Boys & Girls Clubs of Southwest County and Rotary Club of Old Town Temecula are set to host the 3rd Annual Boys & Girls Idol competition on Sept. 25 at the Old Town Temecula Community Theater.
“This is the third year for our Boys & Girls Club Idol event. Originally, it was open to just Boys & Girls Clubs members to sing and dance. This year we’ve limited it strictly to singing, and (the competition) is open to the public,” said Boys & Girls Clubs of Southwest County board member Steve Amante.
The singing competition draws upon the excitement and spirit of Fox’s “American Idol” reality TV show sensation.

According to Amante, over 180 area youth auditioned to be part of the “American Idol”-themed contest. That number was narrowed down to 37 semifinalists in a competition that took place Aug. 28 at the Murrieta Community Center.
Proceeds from the event, including a fundraising competition where friends and family can vote for their favorite audition online, benefit the Boys & Girls Clubs of Southwest County.
“We are expecting a large turnout this year and are tremendously excited for the community to come together for our talented youth” said Chief Executive Officer for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Southwest County Maryann Edwards, in a released statement.
