Spokeswoman Michelle Hinton says this unique online singing competition raises funds to feed the hungry.
Hinton says the Harvest for Hunger Virtual Idol is one component of the 2013 Harvest for Hunger campaign.
She says every dollar that is donated serves a dual purpose. She says it not only counts as one vote for the video, but it also helps one person in need.
Hinton says the video with the most votes when voting closes on April 30th will be named the 2013 Harvest for Hunger Virtual Idol winner.
She says the competition champion will have the opportunity to sing during the Foodbank’s Harvest for Hunger wrap-up event and will be featured on virtualidol.org for a year.
