GRAND FINALE - AUGUST 23, 2013 - 7:00 PM

The Top 10 Finalists selected from auditions were awarded the opportunity to perform in the new worship center at Steele Creek Church of Charlotte on Friday August 23, 2013. 

It was truly a great night of praise and worship with everything from Contemporary Christian to Jazz, Hip-Hop to Blues, and Gospel to Rap. All for His glory.

 

Who were the TOP 10?


The TOP 10 covered the spectrum from a rapper to a classically trained jazz guitarist. We had Gospel that will drew a tear and Folk music that made your spirit dance. We heard Blues that stirred the soul and contempary Praise & Worship that encouraged all the Saints to sing. 

In alphabetical order they are:

 

Aaron Busch                    Katrina Onekanda     

Angi Waldrop                   Kirby Anthony         

Cara Dawes                     Regina Jackson           

Edward Tonini                  Shane Tracy       

John Lewis                       Tawana Ross    
 
NOTE: Proceeds from this event help All Things Possible Ministries administer Medical Fundraisers for people with catastrophic medical bills due to life threatening illnesses.
