The Blue Star Wine Bar of Vero Beach is currently holding a singing competition in order to benefit the Healthy Start Coalition of Indian River County. Healthy Start is instrumental in seeing to the needs of babies born prematurely, in helping to make sure they get the appropriate care and attention needed for them to thrive and succeed.
Because of the great work the coalition does, Kitty Wagner has stepped up, and by using her facilities at the Blue Star Wine Bar as the venue, she has added to her “Dancing With The Vero Stars” charity option with the vocal competition to pool the donations and partial proceeds from sales to benefit this worthwhile organization.
Join in the fun by checking out the first week’s participants in the podcast below.
First week participants were Paul Kelly, Moreen Bosch, Kacy Carvajal, Nancy Carvajal and Christopher Cammarota.
The judging was done by local celebrities Rhett Palmer, host of The Florida Show and creator of Vero’s Voice Magazine; Penny Tranchilla, the editor and publisher of The Portfolio Magazine and Christina Tascon, a regular contributor for Your News Weekly and Indian River Magazine, photographer and one of the main “brainchilds” behind the Vero Beach Art Club.
Sound, music, emceeing, livestreaming and podcast recording were all handled by CN Starz* Entertainment of Vero Beach, with Connie Spicer and David Spicer covering the technical aspects of the competition.
There are still openings for the next two weeks’ worth of preliminary competitions. Each week, new singers will perform and eliminations will be done that evening. On March 4th, the nightly winners will appear for the semi-finals and the final four will go into the finals on March 11th. The grand prize winner will receive $250.00 cash, a performance night at the Blue Star Wine Bar and a chartered cruise on the Moonraker sailboat with Capt. Bruce Jackson.
