non-prog- help out a friend?

Post by Sam Gamgee » Mon Jun 19, 2006 11:59 am

So this family is friends of ours, and their daughter who is... I think a high school junior or senior next year, entered this Battle of the Bands contest for a Christian youth conference where if you win, you play in front of 10,000 people and get your song on the conference CD. She's one of ten finalists. And I listened to the track, and she's really amazing. Definitely the best of all the entries. So ordinarily, I would have just voted for her and moved on, but the thing is, you can vote more than once, and there is this one other contestant (Andy Masters) who must have a fan club. He's a hundred votes ahead of her and he can't even sing on key. This is just unfair.

So if you have time, see what you think. Vote for Julia Peterson - I'm sure she'd appreciate it! And you can vote more than once too. :) Thanks, guys!

She has a very nice voice--very smooth. :)

Ooo, looks like they cut some people out.

But she's not far from beating him now! :)

How is it that she's even in the same grouping as all the others?? They're all so terrible! Sorry. I listened to everyone else and had to stop it in the middle of every song. Julia's actually pretty good.
