      Beyond Idol 2013

      Beyond Emancipation’s unique and powerful project
      called Beyond Idol is now in its second year. In 2012, Beyond Idol
      began as an event series to give voice to the talent and expressions of
      current and former foster care/probation youth, ages 16 – 24, in
      Alameda County. This year, at the behest of last year's participants,
      we are expanding Beyond Idol to become a youth and artistic
      development program that cultivates the talents of youth in foster care,
      culminating in a series of events in the late Fall of 2013.

      Auditions • Laney College, September 21, 2013
      Finals Competition • New Parish, October 8, 2013
      Finale • Yoshi’s Oakland, October 23, 2013

      The Beyond Idol program helps a sensitive, often misrepresented population of youth develop much needed confidence and self-respect
      that will have an impact on how they perform in the upcoming events.
      But most importantly, youth will be able to apply the transferable skills
      they learn in the program to all other aspects of their lives. Take it from
      2012 Beyond Idol Spoken Word Champion Sade Daniels, speaking on
      her enlightening experience during the auditions process.
      "One judge said to me ‘What you are saying, it goes beyond
      just this competition. You’re saying something that every black
      girl, every adolescent girl, needs to hear.’ Hearing something
      like that was like: 'Dang, I didn’t know what I said was that
      important!' I felt a major boost!"
      Registration for Beyond Idol is mandatory and FREE! Contestants can
      choose to compete in one of four areas: Hip Hop, Spoken Word,
