Four former America Idol contestants will be performing on Sept. 23 at 7 p.m. in St. Joseph, MO to benefit The Make-A-Wish Foundation.
The show, which will be held at The Missouri Theater will feature Kimberly Caldwell, Mikalah Gordon, Brandon Rogers and Justin Guarini, who appeared throughout the various seasons on the hit Fox program and will sing along with three top finalists from â€œSt. Joe Idolâ€, one of which will be chosen as a winner inÂ the St. Joe Idol competition, as part of A NIGHT FOR MAKE-A-WISH.
The St. Joe Idol competition is separated into three rounds with round one consisting of choosing six semi-finalists from six different locations that are holding auditions. Each location will run its own competition individually and submit a semi-finalist to St. Joe Idol.
These three contestants have already been chosen and will be in competition for the top three slots at the semi-final competition which will take place at Terribleâ€™s Casino on Sept. 15. Three finalists will be selected and will perform at A NIGHT FOR MAKE-A-WISH and the judges will choose one winner who will be awarded the title of â€œSt. Joe Idol.â€
Lynne Stover, a Missouri Western student, plans on attending the festivities with her children.
â€œIt will be fun to have some of the contestants from American Idol here in St. Joseph performing with our own â€œSt. Joe Idolâ€ contestants and itâ€™s for a good cause,â€ said Stover.
The â€œSt. Joe Idolâ€ charity event strives to raise corporate and general awareness about the needs of local non-profit organizations focusing on one organization per â€œseason,â€ with the mission to connect corporations, small businesses and individuals to directly aid a worthy cause. This seasonâ€™s chosen recipient is the Make-A-Wish FoundationÂ® of Missouri.
