  1. She has a beautiful voice and was endearing to watch. She sings with passion and gets the crowd mesmerized. The whole band itself is amazing and would recommend anyone to watch their performance.

  2. Darn, nobody I wanted to vote for is nominated. Just kidding! I guess as long as you had a pulse you could get nominated!
