WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- Two local finalists will compete in the National 'Blind Idol' Singing Competition this Saturday in Winston-Salem.

They'll both compete against three other visually impaired singers to win a Grand Prize package valued at $4,000. The award includes $2,000 cash, recording time in a professional studio and a professional headshot.
Blind Idol is organized by IFB Solutions, a nonprofit that helps people who are blind find employment.
The competition is open to the public. It's Saturday, August 11 at 7 p.m. at the Hanesbrands Theatre located at 209 N. Spruce Street in Winston-Salem. Admission is $5 at the door.
