Southern California radio station STAR 98.7 (KYSR-FM) is searching for the next Rock Star in a music competition contest named Rockstar 987. The winner will be awarded $25,000 cash, $2,000 in Guitar Center equipment and a record deal with Ironworks Music (owned and operated by Kiefer Sutherland and Jude Cole). Star 98.7 is inviting listeners, musicians, singers and songwriters (individual or group) to submit a video of themselves performing an original song (no “covers”) to STAR 98.7’s website www.star987.com.

All qualifying video performances are posted for viewing on www.star987.com as they are received. Five finalists, as determined by online voting and a panel of judges, will advance to the finale. The five finalists will each perform at least one original song at the Key Club on the Sunset Strip in front of a live audience on Friday August 17th. Immediately following the performances a panel of judges will determine the grand prize winner.
