Hi, all! I don't want to break any rules here, so if this is out of place I apologize (& I'm sure you'll let me know, haha!). I know MDC isn't in the business of promoting people, but I want to share this with you!
My niece Becca is 15, & she is a talented singer & songwriter. She auditioned for a vocal competition hosted by a local Christian radio station & was chosen as one of the top 20, then after a live "battle round" she made it to the top 8, & is now down to the final 4. What's amazing is that she's the youngest, she is up against people twice her age! She is also the ONLY ONE who WRITES HER OWN MUSIC.
At stake for her is the chance to win a $10,000 music scholarship, a professional recording session, & an opening spot for a Newsboys concert April 1st. This is LIFE-CHANGING! The winner will be determined by how many people "like" her contestant page on Facebook, & also how many text votes she gets. Right now she is neck & neck with another competitor. He's a great singer, but he doesn't write his own music, & he apparently has 10,000 people at his disposal via email. She can't compete with that unless we get the word out to more folks, so here I am.
You can ignore this, I won't be offended, but if you are interested in hearing her performance (of a song she wrote) & possibly considering a vote, this is where you can do so: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kpfLeA1vb58&feature=related
If you like what you see & think she deserves to win, then you can vote by "liking" this page here (& then sharing it with your friends): https://www.facebook.com/pages/Vote-for-Rebecca-Olesek-in-The-Shine-Factor-Chicago-2012/263692913717047
Again, if this is not the place to share this, I apologize. I'm not trying to sneak something in under the radar! (I have only really posted in the Pregnancy Loss forums.)
But if this type of post is allowed, then please vote by liking her page & sharing it with your friends!
Thank you so much. =)
Colleen (Becca's aunt)
