For the past several years NATA (North American Telugu Association) has been playing a vital role in encouraging the youth talent in Music. As part of that, in 2016, NATA conducted NATA IDOL Regional competitions in 10 cities and semi-finals and finals during the NATA Convention in Dallas, TX. The purpose of NATA IDOL is to encourage the youth to learn the Telugu Music, ignite the passion within them, and bring them on to the stage to develop the courage to perform. Top two winners of the NATA IDOL 2016 had an opportunity to sing in Telugu Movies. Other singers who advanced to higher levels in NATA IDOL got an opportunity to sing in various albums on their own.
