The Spring Into Praise™ Sabbath Praise Showcase is a friendly competition to find the best undiscovered Adventist music sensation. Minister Bruce Seawood, Spring Into Praise™ Founder/Chairman, felt that the music conference should invest in someone early in their musical

journey in a tangible way and thus he created this showcase. 

Sabbath Praise Showcase participants are allowed to enter from

all geographies and there is no age limit. Both soloist

and groups are eligible to enter.
