Dreaming about being the next Michael Buble, Celine Dion or Josh Groban? This could be your big chance.
Music producer David Foster -- who propelled all of the above mentioned artists to the top of the pops -- will be conducting an Alberta-wide talent search in September in conjunction with his David Foster and Friends Celebrity Gala to be held Sept. 8 at the Jack Singer Concert Hall.
Performers confirmed for the Sept. 8 Gala include former Chicago lead singer Peter Cetera, Babyface Edmonds, Mahood and comedian Sinbad.
Other names that may appear, though are not confirmed, include Lionel Richie, Reba McEntire and Clay Aiken.
"David always surprises us and gets somebody big to come," says Cook. "A lot of us don't know who until the last minute . . . but it's always somebody huge and it's always the best evening."
Foster has been organizing his charity galas since 1986, raising millions of dollars for the families of children in need of organ transplants.
