The big break

Will Akeylah Simone be the Opening Act™ at Audacy's (formerly Radio.com) annual concert at the Hollywood Bowl? Our previous winner opened for Taylor Swift, Lizzo, Billie Eilish, and more!

In addition to performing at the sold out concert alongside industry superstars, our Opening Act will receive: their own private dressing room, a ton of exposure on the radio, a meet and greet with the other artists, and $10,000!

Q&A

What do you enjoy most about being a musician?

As cliche as it sounds, being a musician helps me connect to a side of me I tend to have trouble connecting to. To another side of me. Which is pretty ridiculous because music is my life. That’s what I enjoy most. That connection.

Which musician would you like to collaborate with?

Masego!

If you were the next Opening Act, what would you do with $10,000?

At this point in my career, it would be towards traveling to perform. There would be a serious investment into the quality of my sound and recording but a huge focus would be touring and financial stress that comes with that.
