81, Avex Hold Auditions for Singer Who Will Debut in TV Anime
posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
The management agency 81 Produce and avex entertainment began taking applications on Wednesday for their new audition project to find a vocalist who will debut with a theme song for an upcoming television anime series. This is the first time that Avex is holding an audition for an anime song vocalist, although the company often hosts auditions for idols, vocalists, and dancers.
Entrants must be between 13-22 years of age and must attach a song sample to their applications. Avex is accepting applications until March 31, and the companies will host three rounds of selection screenings between April and May to find a winner. The winner will sing the theme song for an anime that will premiere in 2012.
Avex Group Holdings announced in 2010 that its avex entertainment subsidiary is establishing an anime production division to develop business opportunities in voice actors and actresses, merchandisable works, and long-term franchises.
