"WRITE OUT LOUD" plays Feinstein's/54 Below (254 West 54th Street) on September 25th at 7PM. There is a $40-$50 cover charge and $25 food and beverage minimum. Tickets and information are available at https://54below.com/events/write-out-loud/. Tickets on the day of performance after 4:00 are only available by calling (646) 476-3551.
Of the contest, Louderman says, "the success of MEAN GIRLS has given me a lens into the world of young artists. I wanted to find ways to use my platform to inspire & empower others." With the help of Rauhala, Kurt Deutsch (President of Ghostlight Records), and performers/video designers Matt Rodin and Nikhil Saboo, the team was able to merge their creative forces and amplify the work of the contest winners by inviting performers like Arielle Jacobs (Aladdin), Bonnie Milligan (Head Over Heels), Erika Henningsen (Mean Girls), and DeMarius Copes (Mean Girls) to record the winning singles.
