Deadline for MLK Unsung Hero Nominations, Performance Applications is Thursday
The 34th Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration Committee invites the University community to nominate an Unsung Hero or audition to perform onstage at the event. All Unsung Hero nominations and applications to perform are due Thursday, Dec. 13, at 5 p.m.
The MLK Celebration is a night of dynamic entertainment and inspirational presentations of the Unsung Hero Awards, which recognizes local community members, faculty, staff and students who—like Dr. King—champion the plight of those in need. This year’s celebration features Trevor Noah, author, comedian and host of the Emmy- and Peabody Award-winning “The Daily Show.”
Auditions are open to all composers, dancers, instrumentalists, poets, singers and other creators and artists. For those interested in this opportunity to light up the stage in celebration of Dr. King, sign up to audition at mlk.syr.edu/history/current-celebration/audition-to-perform-at-the-2019-mlk-celebration/.
The Unsung Hero Award celebrates individuals or community groups who exemplify the spirit, life and teachings of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. but have not received widespread recognition for or been previously honored for their efforts. To nominate someone who makes their world a better place, visit mlk.syr.edu/unsung-hero-award/nominate-an-unsung-hero/.
