HARRODSBURG — On Sept. 12, area residents will have the chance to hear performances by local talent. They will even get the chance to vote on what they hear.
Mercer County Foundation for Education will host an MC Idol competition beginning at 11 a.m. Sept. 12 in the Mercer County Senior High School auditorium.
Even though the event is called "MC Idol," it's open to more than Mercer County residents, said Becky Holt, executive director for the foundation.
Holt said the event is a chance to showcase local talent, but isn't a "third-grade talent show."
This is the first year for MC Idol, but Holt hopes to make it an annual event.
Adults and children alike will be welcome to participate in the event. There are categories for vocals and instrumentals, groups and individuals.
