Aspire to Stardom was an event born out of the need to let the youth of the community have their talents be seen and heard.  The entire event was free to those auditioning; there is no charge to audition or perform at the festival which makes it an even more appealing platform for people who want to get their talents heard. This year the show will be Friday, April 15th from 5:00pm to 9:30pm on the Fun Zone Stage at the Rivers and Spires Festival, Downtown Clarksville. «Read the rest of this article»
