For the tenth year, Raksha will hold its famous fundraiser at the Gwinnett Center on Saturday, September 20, 2008. This year's exciting show will be the third annual Idol contest, which will feature a song competition in two categories, adult and junior.

Over 120 contestants auditioned through Spice Radio, mail-in and karaoke auditions. Raksha has selected 10 adult finalists and 5 junior finalists for the show on September 20th. Participants will be judged by musical and theater professionals from the local South Asian community. To learn more about our finalists and The Rhythm of Ek Shaam – Idol 2008, please visit the Raksha website:
