Today, we still find ourselves in a very similar situation,” says competition founder Scott Coulter. “We created Send my regards… as a way to give back to our own community and provide meaningful, long-term support, resources and mentorship opportunities,” he continues. “Last year’s contest, won by California actress/singer Chelle Denton, was such a success that we decided to make it an annual event. I’m so excited to meet the next batch of undiscovered American talent. Last year’s competition was a gift to all of us and we are thrilled to once again be able to offer several budding artists their first big shot in show business.”
