LIP-SYNC THE BEST 90s TUNES AT ZOZOBRA!
Do you and your friends TikTok to the most iconic tunes of the 1990s? Do you like channeling InSync, Nirvana or the Spice Girls? If the answer is YES, then Kiwanis wants YOU! To mark the Decades Project 90s era’s memorable music and moves, Kiwanis is seeking a youth group ready, willing and able to lip-sync for an audience that’s pumped to hear the tunes and see you show off the fly style of the 90s.
You and your friends will literally be on the pageant stage to lip-sync the 90s songs of that decade’s most well-known and beloved bands, rocking out with a Pearl Jam tune or living out your Foo Fighter fantasy before a live in-person audience of tens of thousands dancing along with you and hundreds of thousands more watching on TV and online around the world!
