I’m auditioning for this talent scout program, and I have to sing a song. Any ideas? Thank you.

What sort of music do you like to sing?

In a stressful moment in an audition it is best to sing a song that you are really familiar with.

“Somewhere” from West Side Story. I don’t think it is terribly difficult, but when sung well it can really be emotional.

I agree with marinelife. Now is not the time to attempt to learn a song you are not already familiar with.

What about a love song you love and can associate with?

This works wonders. Try it.

One that you are most proud of and in your comfort zone. Don’t stretch for something at this point. Do that once the pressure is off.

I have no idea what kind of voice or range you have, but here are a few of my suggestions:

Somewhere Out There

Defying Gravity

Here’s to the Heroes

Going Home

Wind Beneath My Wings

You Raise Me Up

The Colors of the Wind

Some People

@Kardamom You Raise Me Up is a real audition cliche,

An incredibly important detail you left out was whether you are male of female, and what range you sing in (tenor, etc).

you should sing a song that you are familular with and a song that suits your tone of voice. just make sure you are in your comfort zone and later on in the competition start to test your abbilities
