A special evening of performances featuring young artists who were awarded appearances in the Annual FBISF Youth Showcase.

Part of the FBIFFM Educational Outreach Program, the annual showcase awards scholarships and a paid performance in the FBISF. Tonight, the selected artists for 2023 will perform their own original songs at Lulu’s, Gulf Shores, which has been a long term sponsor of the annual showcase.
