AmeriTitle Idol is a live-band karaoke competition designed to raise funds for the community. Money is raised through a $10 admission fee at the door.
The FlexTones are the highly skilled live-band who can effortlessly go from The Beatles, to Adele, to The Black Keys. Then we have the contestants. The singers are the brave souls who stand up there and belt it out for the good of the cause and for the coveted title of AmeriTitle Idol.
This year has a special twist as our panel of judges is made up (almost) entirely of reality television stars.
Pictured top to bottom and left to right: Laura Morett, Cierra Eastin, and Kelley Wentworth, all of CBS’s Survivor; Hart Keene from NBC’s America’s Got Talent; Andrew Shayde from CBS’s The Amazing Race; Natalie Cunial from CBS’s Big Brother, Tony Pieper from ABC’s Bachelorette & The Bachelor Pad; Suzi White-Thorud, proud REALTOR® and AmeriTitle Idol veteran.
Our emcees for the event are Kyle Sexton, a Marketing Strategist, writer, trainer, and speaker; and Don Sturgeon, Principal Broker of HomeSmart Realty. Both have shared their singing skills in the past and will no doubt provide an added layer of entertainment.
This collective line-up of talent should fill the house each week of the competition. The AmeriTitle Willamette Valley crew anticipates drawing a large crowd to The Half Penny. The more people we can gather, the more funds we will raise. Together, we can do good things for our community.
