After almost a month of singing competitions, a champion in Valley Heritage Radio’s Valley Search for a Star contest has been crowned. Renfrew’s Bailey Rogers was the judges’ choice last night during the finals in front of a full house at the Horton Community Centre, after performing Desperado, and At Last. Bailey was also chosen as Fan Favourite by those who attended all four nights of the competition and a donation to a charity of her choice will be made by the station. For her efforts, Bailey takes home the grand prize of $3,500. The runner-up in the extremely tight competition was Lori MacKenzie from Renfrew … who sang We’re All Alone and a superb rendition of Me & Bobby McGee.
Congratulations also go out to all of our finalists including Jeanika Benoit … Jamie Anne Bentz … Vicki Brittle … Gracie Cavanagh … Beverley Cutmore … Levi Hart … Ainsley Phillips … and Tiffany Schilkie.
Each of our 10 finalists (and they are all very, very talented) performed two songs each with our Hall of Fame band. And the band alone is worth the price of admission! They are Mark Lemieux (drums), Maureen Young (keys), Brian Hebert (fiddle), Brian Ostrom (steel), Dale Duke Ducharme (bass) and Rodger Coloumbe (guitar).
