Are you ready to “Be Heard”? Well, REVOLT Summit x AT&T got you! The networking event returns in 2020 with the fan-favorite performance contest where aspiring singers and rappers will have the chance to show off their chops for $10,000 and more lit prizes.

Hosted by music extraordinaire Ne-Yo, the competition officially kicks off on Tuesday (Sept. 16).

This means that they’ll be five artists going head-to-head each week leading up to the grand finale, which goes down on Friday, Oct. 23; REVOLT Summit weekend. And then, the real competition starts…

On this day of the Be Heard finale, the last five contestants standing will duke it out for the top spot in front of music industry judges by performing an original song of their own.

For those who want to watch the showdown, we’ve got you covered because a live audience can join in virtually, as well.

Once the lucky winner is crowned, they’ll receive a $10,000 prize, as well as have a music video of theirs aired on REVOLT’s “Untapped” series, and a featured article about them on

See y’all at the show! May the best artist win.
