The Gospel Music Association (GMA) and Walt Disney World Resort, have teamed up to send a contestant in the Music in the Rockies Spotlight 2005, to perform at Night of Joy at the Magic Kingdom in September.
GMA Music in the Rockies (formerly “Seminar in the Rockies”) will be held July 31 through August 6 at the Estes Park Center YMCA. One of the main attractions of Music in the Rockies is the Spotlight 2005 and Song of 2005, GMA’s official talent competition for unsigned artists and songwriters. Grand prize winners are named in several categories. This year, Walt Disney World Entertainment will send two judges to Music in the Rockies where they will participate on a panel of judges at various performances and competitions during the week. The Disney judges will then select one contestant, to receive the Disney “Best of Show” award and the Night of Joy at Walt Disney World Prize Package.
The Music in the Rockies Disney winner will perform on the same stage as MercyMe, Casting Crowns, Steven Curtis Chapman, tobyMac, CeCe Winans, Newsboys, Audio Adrenaline, Nicole C. Mullen and Donnie McClurkin during Disney’s Night of Joy Sept. 9 and Sept. 10 in the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World Resort.
In addition to the exclusive opportunity to perform at Night of Joy, the Disney winner will be awarded two night’s accommodations for four guests at Walt Disney World hotels, 10 “Magic Your Way” tickets to Epcot, Magic Kingdom, Disney-MGM Studios, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom, as well as 10 tickets to the Night of Joy at Walt Disney World.
