WSC

World Karaoke Tour (WKT) is proud to announce our partnership with Positively Arts, a Las Vegas-based 501c3 non-profit charity for the upcoming WKT World Singing Championships which will be held November 15-18, 2018 in Las Vegas.

The top competitive singers from around the globe will compete for the title of World Champion at the Grand Finale which will take place on the final day of competition, November 18, at the Esports Arena Las Vegas at the Luxor Resort and Casino. Net proceeds of ticket sales for the Grand Finale will be going to help continue Positively Arts mission of bringing professional artists together with aspiring students to ensure that the performing arts continue to thrive despite the financial difficulties that so many schools are forced to navigate.

“WKT believes in Positively Arts core beliefs of giving young people positive performance arts opportunities for students despite their financial need or accessibility to the arts”, said WKT Commissioner Whitney-John Stuart. “We are proud to help to bring awareness to this amazing non-profit charity.”

“We’re thrilled that WKT is taking such an interest in what we’re trying to do with children and families here in Las Vegas. It’s not often that outside companies seek out partnerships with charities when they come through Vegas. Mr. Stuart’s passion for the arts and for people is evident not only in his outreach with us, but also through the way he runs WKT as an inclusive, giving and positive force wherever they go”, says Pilita Simpson, President and Executive Director for Positively Arts.
