Young Chicago-based singer selected as Grand Finalist to represent USA in international singing competition
Jaiden Hsu, a 13-year-old singer out of Northfield, IL, was chosen to attend the 2022 International Festival of Language and Culture (IFLC) in Germany, representing the USA in the Colors of Voices international vocal competition. As one of the 13 Grand Finalists, Jaiden performed a traditional American folk song, Shenandoah, before a crowd of approximately 1,500 in Paderborn, Germany. Jaiden will also perform in Berlin on June 26, in a final production put on by the 160 participating countries.
Founded in 2002, the IFLC celebrates 20 years promoting cross-cultural friendship, collaboration, diversity, and peace. Against the current backdrop of international conflict and tragedy, the messaging of the IFLC is a refreshing reminder of the hope for peace shared globally. The program cultivates lifelong friendships among its participants, which bridge language and cultural differences and celebrates diversity.
The IFLC performers will also tour North America in October, 2022, with shows in Los Angeles, New Jersey, and Toronto. More information about the program and events can be found at https://intflc.org.
