She's been singing her heart for the last few months competing against hundred of young singers from across the state, now a girl from Newport Beach is on her way to the finals of the SOCAL ICON singing competition.
Brooke Besikof, 10, was recently named one of the 21 finalists in the sixth annual SOCAL ICON solo vocal competition for singers ages 7-18. Besikof auditioned in June singing acapella for judges. During semifinals in July Besikof sang before a live theater audience and she will sing once again in the finals on Saturday, Aug. 31 at The Margaret A. Webb Theater in Santa Ana.
"My name was called and I was so surprised and honored to be chosen," Besikof said. "I will
be singing Temporary Home by Carrie Underwood my favorite country
singer. The song is important to me because I started a charity with my
friend Alyssa Antoci, called JUST A LITTLE CLOTH, to help other girls my
age who may be struggling through hard times. The song "Temporary
Home" is all about how no matter what tough time you are facing, it is
temporary and you can get through any tough time if you keep your head
up and believe anything is possible."
celebrity judges will choose one
winner from each age group. The judges’ votes
will count as a percentage of the total tally while the audience will
cast votes that account for the remaining percentage.
The three winners
will be awarded prizes including a trophy from ICON Performing Arts, a vocal recording
session and a professional photo session.
The final show is open to the public. For tickets information visit socalicon.com.
