Want2BDiscovered.com, LLC is giving unsigned artists more exposure than any other web site and has launched a seven-month urban talent competition – the Urban Showcase Series – to help get musicians discovered and the public involved.
On June 27, 2007, Want2BDiscovered.com started a competition of unsigned music artists. Broadcast live from the Rutledge in Nashville, TN, six shows are scheduled with four contestants per show (24 in total). There will be a total of six winning contestants who will battle it out, live, at the seventh show on December 14.

Remaining competition dates are: July 27, August 31, September 21, October 26, and November 30.
On July 27, there are four contestants and three spotlight musicians scheduled to appear live on stage before hundreds of people, and potentially, thousands via the Internet.
Showcases and competitions are live and web streamed on the web site at: www.Want2BDiscovered.com. Performances are publicly displayed for the world to view and people are encouraged to vote for their favorite artist. Musical categories cover the spectrum and include all genres: rock, jazz, blues, country, alternative, gospel, reggae and more.
