If you’ve ever dreamed of being a star, FOX is giving one talented fan the opportunity to get “signed” to one of Music’s hottest record labels, and appear on TV’s hottest shows! Today, FOX announced the contest, “FOX’s Next Empire Artist,” and a nationwide bus tour where fans can record their version of Empire’s greatest hits and enter to win a role on the show!
Empire is bringing fans the ultimate music experience this summer as it launches the “FOX’s Next Empire Artist” nationwide bus tour, which kicks off Thursday, July 16 in Los Angeles. The gold Empire bus, outfitted with a one-of-a-kind recording studio, will travel to 15 cities across the country, giving fans the opportunity to record their versions of Empire’s biggest hits. In addition, fans recording songs will also have the opportunity to record an a capella version to submit in the “FOX’s Next Empire Artist” contest, in which one lucky winner will appear as an Empire artist during Season Two.
In addition to recording Empire music on the bus, from “No Apologies” to “Drip Drop,” fans will have the chance to be part of a special photo experience, as they stand in for “Lucious Lyon,” and, of course, they will be treated to “Cookie’s” fresh-baked cookies!
