Won By One

Audition Information

To audition for Won By One, please complete an online application and have two letters of recommendation sent to by March 31 prior to the year of admittance. Within the online application, please provide a link to an uploaded video (Youtube) of a vocal audition consisting of three a cappella songs, one being a previously recorded Won By One song and one song with a brief Won By One style introduction. Do not send your audition video in the form of a DVD or emailed video file. Click here to access the application.

How are auditions conducted?

All candidates will be required to submit a video recorded audition consisting of three a cappella songs, one with a brief Won By One-style introduction (why the song was selected, why it is meaningful, etc.). It may benefit you to select songs of varying styles in order to most adequately showcase their voices. At least one of the songs must have been previously recorded by Won By One.

Important: The video must be unedited (without stops) -- in other words, it is a continuous taping of song, introduction, song, song, and self-introduction (not necessarily in that order). You should spend no more than five minutes describing yourself.

The online application should be submitted no later than March 31. Your two letters of recommendation should include at least one from an elder or minister at your home congregation and should also be received by March 31. After reviewing the audition videos, a smaller group may be asked to come to campus to audition in person. The group should be selected by the end of April.
