Each year AMF hosts The Outperformers – a national-level western vocal competition that is open to singers aged up to and including 18 years. The aim of the competition is not just to provide a platform for competing, but to encourage and support talent and camaraderie among aspiring singers of the future. Outperformers has continuously raised the bar in terms of the number and quality of participants and the reach of its presence. No matter what part of the country you are located in, we hope you will encourage your students/children to be a part of this prestigious competition.
