Step Up to the Mic With Amara La Negra

Wondering what it takes to work with the likes of Migos and Murda Beatz? What about Starrah and Amara La Negra? Times may be tough right now, but you can do just that with the help of Triller! Triller is an AI-powered music video “social streaming” platform, and they’re bringing Step Up to the Mic, powered By Boost Mobile™, to the comfort of everyone’s homes during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Step Up to the Mic is a nationwide elimination-style talent search competition. We recently caught up with Amara La Negra, the Afro-Latina star who is helping judge the competition, alongside Quavo, Takeoff, Starrah and Murda Beatz. What makes this talent competition show different than any other is not just the all-star judges, but that it also gives aspiring artists the opportunity to get signed to a major label and management deal up to one year.

Other grand prizes include recording an original song written by Starrah and produced by Murda Beatz, shooting a professional music video, the potential to place in the U.S. Top 100 charts and a free Boost Mobile smartphone and credit for up to one year of service. Amara says this show is “unique because it’s through..,Triller, which is very innovative.” We definitely agree! Her favorite part about it is the fact you can create your own music videos at the tip of your fingers.

We know similar shows have found some of the biggest artists ever – hello, Kelly Clarkson on season 1 of American Idol! La Negra says that when it comes to looking for the next biggest star, she’s “looking for someone who has personality, creativity, sauciness, brings something different to the table and is open-minded when it comes to experimenting with their music.”

Fans, we know this could be a nerve-wracking experience, but the triple-threat celebrity and social media star has some advice. La Negra says, “Never give up, be persistent and consistent, and when people say no, it should empower you to prove them wrong. This is a tough industry and only the warriors and strong-minded individuals make it.”

What are you waiting for? The deadline to audition for the next biggest show is May 29! Head to triller.co/stepup for more information.
