Who Wants to be a Rock Star?

Do you have budding talent on your hands? Does he or she want a bit of fame? Bring your musically inclined kids to the first-ever casting call for the Sears Arrive Air Band, from 10am-1pm Saturday, Aug. 1, at the Sears Court in Mesquite’s Town East Mall.

Actress/singer Selena Gomez (of Wizards of Waverly Place fame), who won't be on location, is teaming up with Sears to help create the band. The live casting will be nationwide, and judges will choose one lucky person to be the fifth band member.

To participate, contestants must be between the ages of eight and 16 and perform their favorite version of the “Don’t Go Back, Arrive” song (song available for download online). Entry is free, and everyone who takes part will receive a free tee shirt.

The winner will appear with the Sears Arrive Air Band on the red carpet at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards in New York City.
