C.C. Ryder, Executive Director of America’s African Idol, LLC, proudly announces the launch of the reality television show, ‘America’s African Idol’ to begin airing in October 2005.

Auditions for talent will begin in August 2005 beginning in Atlanta, Georgia and continuing in thirty-one (31) additional cities across the United States.

Pre-registration begins immediately States Mr. Ryder, “After reviewing reality shows being broadcast on television, I saw African-American talent not only being neglected but also somewhat mistreated.  African-American music has three (3) separate categories-Hip-Hop, Gospel, and Rhythm & Blues-with divisions for both single artists and groups.  The great thing is that the two (2) groups will not compete against each other!  I feel that not giving each of these groups their own competition put potential recording artists at an unfair advantage in seeking to further their career-thus, after two (2) years of laying the foundation, I am proud to now announce the launching of ‘America’s African Idol’. I am looking forward to seeing the multitude of talent being showcased on a fair basis.”

 In additional to the three (3) categories, there will also be a ‘Youth Division’ for talent ages eight (8) years to seventeen (17) years in order for them to compete against their peers.

 All winners in each city, region, and finals receive cash prizes with the ultimate ‘America’s African Idol’ receiving not only a cash prize of $5000.00 and a record recording contract, but also an expense paid trip for two (2) to Africa.
