YouTube Anthem Auditions


The Fresno Grizzlies are holding National Anthem singing auditions, and we want You(Tube)!

If you think you have what it takes to sing in front of the best fans in Minor League Baseball at a 2012 Grizzlies home game, then upload your audition video to the Youtube between Wednesday, February 8th and Wednesday, March 14th. Winners will be chosen by the Grizzlies front office with the input of the number of video likes on YouTube.

To have your video seen and heard by all viewers, please use the following format for the title of your video: "(Your First Name and Last Name) Fresno Grizzlies National Anthem Auditions." Your video description should include the same information as well as any other information you feel is important. Also, and most importantly, tag your video using "GrizzNA." This tag ("GrizzNA") will help everyone easily find your video in the wide world of videos already uploaded to YouTube.

You don't have to audition to participate. We encourage all Grizzlies fans to check out the videos and vote during the contest to pick your favorites.

After uploading your audition video to YouTube, post a link to your video on the Fresno Grizzlies Facebook Page, so a Grizzlies staff member can contact you with performance details.

Got questions? Great! Hopefully the following few will help.

How do I post my audition to YouTube?
First, you must create a (free) YouTube account. Then, simply upload a file from your computer or record from your webcam directly to YouTube.

If I am selected to sing at a Grizzlies game, can I choose which day?
The Grizzlies front office will choose the best game-day for you to sing. This is to help with our previously scheduled dates.
