how it works

How the Showcase Works
1 — Churches within the Charleston area register their choir, praise & worship team, or contemporary Christian group as a McDonald’s Choir Showcase participant using the form provided on the “Registration” page of this site.

2 — Participation requires that the group provide the Choir Showcase Staff with an MP3 recording of their group in performance. The recording must be of an original composition and of sufficient quaility to be usable on this website in the second phase of the Choir Showcase. If the performance is not of an original composition, then the group must have the written permission of the song’s copyright holder.

3 — The second phase of the Choir Showcase’s operation is when the public is asked to register on the site to listen to the recordings that have been submitted and select their favorites. Choir participants are urged to get their church membership, their families and their friends to participate in the selection process.

4 — The nine groups across the three category that are selected as favorites the greatest number of times will then participate in various public performances, including the McDonald’s Choir Showcase Concert.
