Now in its 11th year, KC SuperStar is an “American Idol” style singing competition in Kansas City that awards the $10,000 Edward and Ellen Rose Scholarship to the most talented high school singer in Kansas City, as well as scholarships for the 2nd - 4th place winners.

We couldn't do it without the amazing community members that step up and support The J for this amazing annual fundraiser. Thank you to each and every one of you.
