The American Heart Association/American Stroke Association’s Most Powerful Voices gospel singing competition, presented in conjunction with television network UP, returns in search of dynamic gospel performers who will raise stroke awareness — particularly in the African-American community — through the power of music.

The online competition is open to independent artists, groups and choirs who sing gospel, praise, worship and holy hip-hop. This is the fifth year of Most Powerful Voices and the fifth year the contest has been presented by UP.

Participants can visit and upload a video or MP3 file of their performance between now and March 2. Voting is live and fans have until April 28 to vote.

Public votes will determine the top 10 artists. Industry experts such as RCA Inspiration Artist Latice Crawford, A&R executives and a Roland Corporation musicality expert will review the top 10 and select the winner.

More than 100,000 African-Americans will suffer a new or reoccurring stroke this year, which is why those who register to compete or vote will receive potentially lifesaving stroke information.
