Like many events and milestones that should have happened for the past few months, the 2020 Oh Say Can You Sing competition -- The Local Station's annual singing contest -- went virtual due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

There were 160 video submissions to our open audition call, 10 were selected for callbacks and then four were chosen as this year's finalists. The winner receives a $500 prize and the chance to sing the national anthem to kick off the July 4 fireworks on Channel 4's "Red, White and Boom" Independence Day special.

Meet the finalists: Grace Layugan | Brooke Thomas | Jemel Washington Cantres | Karim Zabaneh

Tune into Channel 4 at 8 p.m. Thursday, June 25, for our Oh Say Can You Sing Finale to see each of our talented singers perform live. The show, from 1904 Music Hall, is presented by Papa John's Pizza. You can cast the winning vote that night by going to news4jax.com/usay or download the News4Jax app on your smartphone or tablet.
