The grand finale of the Sonoma County Teen Idol was held last Saturday night. The winners from each branch; Northwest, Rincon Valley, Cloverdale, Petaluma, Healdsburg and Windsor were invited to compete for the grand prize of $200. Unfortunately, the winner from the Petaluma branch, Beth Anne, came down with a sore throat and wasn't able to make the competition. The other contestants performed in front of a crowd of 124 people.
The judges, Carol Menke, Melissa Kelly, Nancy Cimino and Mark Penn decided that Jessie from Rincon Valley should take home the grand prize. Jessie sung "Moon Dance" to take home the prize.
Thank you to Rob Singleton, a DJ from the morning show at KJZY, for MCing the event.
Congratulations to everyone who participated, P.J. from Northwest, Kelsey from Cloverdale, Danica from Healdsburg and Casandra from Windsor. Everyone deserves a round of applause.
A big THANK YOU to the Library Foundation for making this program possible!
We hope to see AND hear from you next year!
