Karaoke World Championships USA
The Karaoke World Championships (KWC) is an international brand which originated in Finland and has become the biggest and longest-running international amateur singing competition. KWC USA is the only organization in the United States affiliated with the Karaoke World Championships World organization. Since joining the World organization in 2004, KWC USA has brought home 5 gold medals and 15 Top-three placements.
KWC USA is dedicated to scouring the nation for the best amateur singers, in the quest to find the next champion(s) to represent the USA at the World Finals in November, facing off against champions from over 30 countries. Unlike most karaoke competitions, KWC USA strives to build “vocal athletes”, by implementing mentorship and training programs, as well as providing resources to build a singer’s brand.
“Life should not get in the way of our dreams,” says Joshua Baron, National Director at KWCUSA. “The next champion is sitting out there somewhere. It could be a single mother, a veteran, a farmer, people who may have given up on a music career due to life. With the pandemic, people have started to work on their music again, and we want to give these people a platform to share their talents. Our next World champion is out there somewhere, and it could be you!”
KWC USA National Producer, Catie Baron, adds, “The competition and talent were off the charts last year, and we look forward to another amazing season promoting amateur singers from all corners of the country, sharing their voices with a larger audience around the world.”
