Local Radio Station Looks For Next "Star"

Sixty-five people were given a chance to show off their stuff Saturday at Niko's Social Club in Tyler.

Both rappers and singers were judge by a panel that included a representative from the Def Jam music label. The promotion is called "Blazing da Band" and is being put on by local radio station "The Blaze".

The station plans to pick five people to be in a hip-hop band and possibly get a record deal. The station plans to hold another tryout in Longview in a few weeks and then pick the final group in April.

Today's winners automatically qualify for the finals.
