Since 1886, Avon has been improving the lives of women and families globally, and inspiring them to achieve their dreams through Avon’s mission of empowerment. Now, in celebration of its 125th Anniversary, Avon invites people everywhere to join a worldwide movement that unites and inspires through the universal language of music.

Avon Voices is a unique opportunity for women and men in more than 60 countries to make their voices count on a global scale by telling their stories, sharing their dreams, and showcasing their talents.

Singing Talent Search

Avon Voices is searching for two extraordinary female singers with that special “something” to record a professionally produced album.

During the Avon Voices Singing Talent Search, nearly 200 global contenders will fly to exciting destinations, enjoy glam Avon makeovers, and work with music industry professionals . . . in search of the final two.

The Avon Voices global Singing Talent Search is an opportunity for women in participating countries to share their beautiful voices. Participants must be at least 18 years of age.

Throughout 2011, a combination of online public voting and Avon Voices celebrity judges will determine which global contenders advance throughout the Talent Search, and sing their way to the coveted finalist spots.

In the fall of 2011, finalists will join together with Avon Voices celebrities to sing and record the Avon Voices Anthem, an original song written by Diane Warren, one of the world’s most prolific songwriters. The Anthem will be available for purchase, with a percentage of proceeds donated to the Avon Foundation for Women for its Global Campaign to End Violence Against Women and Girls.
