Ten young voices will compete for singing supremacy at Gateway Theatre May 29 in the 11th annual RichCity Idol competition.

Based on popular TV talent shows, RichCity Idol will feature one top singer from each public high school in the district—each selected through their school's own singing competition.

Singers will deliver their best performances in front of a panel of judges before audience members cast votes and ultimately decide who will be crowned the RichCity Idol of 2014.

Hosting this year's show is Dalvir Nanara, a Grade 12 student at H.J. Cambie Secondary, and Hannah Balba, a Grade 11 Richmond High student and former Idol contestant

This year's competitors: Carlos Vidanes (Steveston-London), Carol-Lynn Gee (Hugh McRoberts), Chris Yan (R.A. McMath), Jessica Wong (Burnett), Jiana Gonzales (Richmond High), Kamaira LeBlanc (Hugh Boyd), Kavya Balajepalli (H.J. Cambie), Kennedy Williams (A.R. MacNeill), Maria Encarnacion (Matthew McNair) and Suani Rincon (R.C. Palmer).

RichCity Idol begins at 7 p.m. Thursday, May 29 at Gateway Theatre. General admission tickets are $12 in advance, available at Gateway (gatewaytheatre.com and 604-270-1812) or $15 at the door.

Proceeds from this year's show go to the RichCity Idol endowment fund, created to provide scholarships to Richmond high school students.
