This past Friday, Friday the 18th, Indian Hills High School hosted an extremely successful event, Teen Kula Idol. It was created by Teen Kula For Karma, a branch of Kula For Karma, which was started a year and a half ago. The name “Kula for Karma” comes from the word “Kula” which stands for community, and the word “Karma,” which stands for selfless service. At Friday’s Teen Kula Idol, teens volunteered their time and talent to inspire other teens to get involved in Teen Kula for Karma. Kula for Karma provides meditation instruction and stress management support services to those who have been or are being challenged by difficult circumstances such as: illness, addiction or abuse. Friday’s event included a singing competition inspired by American Idol. Teens from all over auditioned online and after tough eliminations, ten finalists were chosen. These ten finalists performed for a huge audience and 6 judges including JT Taylor, representatives from Atlantic Records, and Jimmy Locust. The event was emceed by Z100’s Sceery Jones and TJ the DJ. All the performers were critiqued and in the end, the judges chose one winner who may just be the music industry’s next big star! Teen Kula for Karma hopes to continue its mission and spread the word and the organization can use all the support it can get!
