Vote now to select the Peirce Idol, student singer of the national anthem at Peirce College’s Commencement 2010!

The auditions are complete!

On Monday, May 3 a group of staff and faculty had the pleasure of hearing five different Peirce students give their renditions of our country’s national anthem.

First of all, I’d like to extend a huge thank you to all our contestants! We were blown away by the auditions, and are so happy that you were willing to share your talents with us.

Now comes the time to decide which of these talented Peirce students will be singing the national anthem at this year’s Commencement.

Below is a video with audition highlights for all five talented contestants. In order we have: Raymond Desheilds, Valerie Ives, Anita Whitaker, Tangela Burnett, and Joshua Wise. The video is just over 10 minutes in length, but please listen to all the auditions before deciding.

It is going to be a tough choice, so once you’ve viewed the auditions, please VOTE to let us know who you think should be selected as Peirce Idol of Commencement 2010! Your votes will be combined with the judging panel’s to decide who will lead us in the singing of our national anthem at Commencement.

Best of luck to all! We’ll announce the winner next week, so be on the lookout for another post from me.
