Telemundo is spinning off parent network NBC's hit "The Voice" with a singing competition for children called "La Voz Kids" and its coming to Chicago for auditions.
Children between the ages of 7 and 14 can apply and register at lavozkids.com, call 1-855-VOZ-KIDS (1-855-869-5437) or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Those who are accepted will be invited to participate in one of several casting calls around the country. The Chicago call is set for Jan. 26 and 27.
But you must register first. "La Voz Kids" is slated to air in the spring on Telemundo.
"The Voice Kids" starts with the thrilling blind auditions followed by the battle rounds and the live shows.

"La Voz Kids" will give Telemundo's audience the opportunity to witness how the stars of the future are discovered and developed by expert celebrity coaches. The winner of "La Voz Kids" will receive a recording contract with Universal Music and a scholarship.
