If you remember a few weeks back, I let you guys in on the singing contest that Avon had going on. To I've personally been on their site to vote for the second round and I have to say the talent is amazing! I love to see a beauty brand give back to the community that supports them and that's why I'm happy to announce that I'm teaming up with Avon Voices in covering this awesome contest. That means that I can give you guys the latest Avon Voices news, inside scoop, and interviews until the final two winners are announced in November. Those two ladies will have the opportunity to record a professionally produced album, of which a percentage of the record sales will go help fund the Avon Foundation for Women's global campaign to end violence against girls and women.
If you didn't get a chance to check out the entrants, you still have plenty of time to get your votes in. After over 2.2 million online votes, we are officially in the 3 rd round, where 100 contenders have been narrowed down to 25 finalists from 19 countries. "We are so proud of these 25 women - they have inspired us all with their extraordinary talent and beautiful and diverse stories," said Joe Billone, Vice President, Global Communications for Avon Products, Inc. "We are so appreciative of the worldwide support from online voters around the world, and encourage everyone to continue supporting their favorite contenders to help make their dreams come true."
They all get the awesome opportunity to fly to Hollywood to not only record their final performance videos, but receive an Avon makeover, professional voice coaching, and meet some of the celebrity judges. Just in case you don't remember the all star judge panel, it includes Fergie, Dianne Warren, Natasha Bedingfield, Lea Solanga, Valeryia, Delta Goodrem, Sheila E, David Pack, Ivete Sangalo, and Maia. (I may not be able to sing but I would gladly take the celeb meet and greet and makeover! J Just sayin!)
On July 22, their videos will be up and ready for you to check them outand cast your vote from then until August 26! In the meantime, head on over to the site and let me know who you will be voting for!
