Winner Announced for Home Composer Scott Alan's "I'm a Star" Contest
01 Apr 2012
Alexander Sage Oyen
Alexander Sage Oyen was selected the winner of Scott Alan and YouTube sensation Michael Buckley's "I'm a Star Contest," which sought a singer to record a brand-new song by theatre composer Alan for his upcoming "Live" CD.
￼As previously reported, the winner was chosen from over 540 video submissions; Oyen will join a host of Broadway artists at Alan’s April 30 Birdland concert and will perform a new, original song written just for him by the composer.

A majority of the album, which will be produced by the composer and StylesFour Productions, will be recorded live at Alan's already sold-out Birdland concert April 30 at 7 PM. The recording will feature musical direction, arrangements and orchestrations by Jesse Vargas. Due to Monday-night Broadway schedules, some talent will record their tracks prior to the 7 PM concert.
Because the 7 PM concert is already sold out, Birdland has added a 3 PM "Behind the Scenes" concert, which will also serve as a sound check for the performers and the musicians. Due to performance schedules, not all performers will be on hand for the afternoon concert; audiences should also expect retakes and stops during the concert. Tickets are $25 for the 3 PM concert; no drinks or food will be served. There is also no age requirement. Doors will open at 2:30 PM for general seating. To purchase tickets, call (212) 581-3080 or visit http://www.birdlandjazz.com/event/104359.
Alan's show with playwright Christy Hall, Home, is aiming for a Broadway debut in the fall. Home is being produced by StylesFour Productions, whose credits also include Once, Spring Awakening and Driving Miss Daisy.
