Do you have pipes to rival a church organ’s? If so, the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir wants you. The world-renowned Gospel ensemble is offering two singers the chance to sing solos during a Sunday service. And beyond singing with the Grammy-winning group, each winner plus a guest will get an all-expenses-paid hotel stay in NYC. All you need aside from your monstrous talent is a video of yourself performing the choir’s required songs: for men, the song “Surrender;” for women, “Oh The Cross.” Upload your audition by April. 15 on to the Tabernacle’s YouTube page.
