Tri-Rail, South Florida’s premier commuter rail system, invites talented kids ages 5 to 17 to audition for “South Florida’s Kids Got Talent,” a singing competition held as part of Tri-Rail’s “Rail Fun Day.” Young singers from Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties are encouraged to audition for the chance to compete in the judged event. Auditions will be held from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, November 17 at The Galleria at Fort Lauderdale (2414 East Sunrise Boulevard).

“Tri-Rail is proud to continue this annual tradition of showcasing the amazing talents of the young people in our community,” said Bonnie Arnold, public information officer of SFRTA/Tri-Rail. “This is the perfect way to engage with the families that we serve and strengthen the position of Tri-Rail as the way to travel throughout South Florida.”

The singing competition is open to solo or group singers who are South Florida residents ages 5-17. Each act will have a 4-minute opportunity to perform at the auditions. A panel of judges will select the acts that will compete in the final competition, which is scheduled for Saturday, January 26, 2019, during Tri-Rail’s 11th annual “Rail Fun Day.” 

During the January 2018 competition, 16-year-old Mecca Alexander of Miramar stole the hearts of the audience and judges with her performance of Rise Up by Andra Day, earning her the $500 grand prize, one-year contract inclusive of a photo shoot with composite cards courtesy of Porsche Models & Talent and professional studio recording sessions with MikeSoperMusic. 

Over the past ten years, Tri-Rail’s “Rail Fun Day” has welcomed more than 23,000 families. The event has become an annual tradition as a free afternoon of interactive games, arts and crafts, and entertainment while promoting the benefits of riding the commuter rail system.
