Stars are born in Canyons District’s Canyons Idol competition – just ask 12-year-old Lexi Walker.

Walker catapulted to America’s computer screens when her Canyons Idol National Anthem performance at the Real Salt Lake game went viral last year. She continues to be a YouTube sensation with her cover of “Let It Go” from Disney’s “Frozen.” The clip has received more than 30 million views.

This year’s Canyons Idol Auditions are scheduled for Friday, April 25, from 3-5 p.m. at the Canyons Administration Building, 9150 S. 500 West.

The winner will sing the National Anthem at the 7 p.m. Real Salt Lake game on Saturday May 17 – the same night Real Salt Lake honors our Teachers of the Year at halftime.  CSD students, employees and patrons can buy $20  discounted tickets to the game.  How to buy the tickets?  Just follow the easy-to-use tool on our Web site.

It’s for a good cause, too. Five dollars of each ticket sold to the game through the Web site will be given to the Canyons Education Foundation.

The Jordan Credit Union also is chipping in scholarship money for the top three audition performances. The credit union will give $500 for first place and $250 for second and third.
