Fifteen finalists will vie to become the next Cyclone Voice on April 11 in a competition hosted by country musician Mason Ramsey.
A video of Ramsey yodeling went viral last year, leading the 12-year-old to release his first extended play record. Ramsey will introduce each of the student performers. He also will perform a few songs during the judges' deliberations.
The event will take place in the Memorial Union Great Hall with doors opening at 7:30 p.m. Singing starts at 8 p.m. Admission is free and open to the public.
Thirty students took part in the April 1 preliminary competition and judges selected the 15 finalists.
