Our Peirce Idol competition has turned up great talent over the past few years. If you’re thinking of auditioning, you can catch the 2010 and 2011 auditions here on our blog in case you missed them.

The winner of Peirce Idol 2010 was Raymond DeShields, a married father of three pursuing his degree in Business Administration from Peirce. Our Commencement 2011 vocalist was Morraye Berrios, also a Business Administration student. They both gave us memorable performances, and it is always a special experience to have one of our own step up to sing the national anthem!
