KC SuperStar

What is KC SuperStar?

Now in its ninth year, KC SuperStar is an “American Idol” style competition that awards the $10,000 Edward & Ellen Rose Family Scholarship to the best high school singer in the Kansas City metropolitan area. After auditions and semifinals, judges select 10 finalists to compete in an exhilarating show where the audience votes electronically for the winner of the $10,000 prize and the title of KC SuperStar.

In addition to providing an amazing opportunity and meaningful experience for Kansas City’s most talented teens, KC SuperStar is the annual fundraiser for the Jewish Community of Greater Kansas City.  Proceeds from the event make transportation, meals, education, camp, wellness programs and the arts possible to so many deserving children, families, individuals and senior adults.
