NBC'S NEW A CAPELLA SINGING COMPETITION SERIES "THE SING-OFF" TRAVELS TO FOUR CITIES IN SEARCH OF THE MOST TALENTED GROUPS IN AMERICA

Auditions To Take Place in New York City (Sept. 12), Chicago (Sept. 14), Atlanta (Sept. 16) and Los Angeles (Sept. 19)

Universal City, Calif. - August 18, 2009 - "The Sing-Off," NBC's upcoming a capella singing competition series, will be traveling to four U.S. cities in September searching for the most talented a capella singing groups to compete on the series for a chance at an Epic Records/Sony Entertainment recording contract. Auditions will take place in New York City (Sept. 12), Chicago (Sept. 14), Atlanta (Sept. 16) and Los Angeles (Sept. 19).

A capella music has been the basis and inspiration for many top musical acts on the charts from Motown to Boyz to Men. Recently it has been the focus of national tournaments and exploded in popularity on college campuses all over the country. With a strong fan base and largely untapped talent pool, it has never been the center of a musical competition until now. The best of the best are going to compete on a national stage. From Joel Gallen's ("America's Best Dance Crew") Tenth Planet Productions, Outlaw Entertainment and Sony Pictures Television, "The Sing-Off" will feature the country's top a cappella groups performing popular songs like you've never heard them before. There's no lip-synching, back-up bands or safety net. They'll be singing for America's vote with the winner walking away with the ultimate prize - an Epic Records/Sony recording contract.

The casting call dates, times and locations are as follows:

NEW YORK, NY Saturday September 12 SIR Studios 520 W. 25th St. (Between 10th & 11th) New York, NY 10001 www.sirny.com Line Starts at 8am - Doors Open at 9am
