Best Singer 2017

From the President:

Welcome to the Best Singer in the State Vocal Performance Competition!

It is with great honor that I’ve been blessed to present such an empowering program, one which continues to provide a meaningful and rewarding platform for aspiring vocal artists to use to inspire and encourage future artists with an opportunity to improve their professional performing skills while rewarding excellence, determination, drive, planning, and courage. Chance and success favor the prepared…and sometimes the road to success starts with defeat. This program offers you an invaluable opportunity to prepare for that one day and that one chance to prove yourself on a major/global stage.

I wish each and every contestant the best, and may you receive our intent in the spirit in which this program was developed. Thank you and good luck to all.
